Our goofy yellow friends climbed into the hearts and minds of children and adults alike when the first "Despicable Me" found its way into our theatres. Their popularity grew to the point where many sequels have been made. This brought more laughter to the globe with every new release. 

As the narrator of "The Minions" film said, the only purpose these little monsters have is to find and serve the evilest and most "despicable" villain out there. This is something that minions can't seem to get right. This comical inadequacy has led to an entertaining ride for the audience watching these movies for years. 

Within the inaudible language of these mischievous creatures, they have had a penchant for saying the most basic yet absurd statements, leaving our stomachs sore. Not only them, but their fellow characters have left us with some of the funniest quotes out there. Here are 20:

It is obvious that although slightly inept at their jobs, these yellow creatures are serious about finding and following the best super-villain out there. With all their noises and antics, it is hard not to find affection in one's heart for them, even though they do the bidding of those hell-bent on making life difficult for everyone.

Either way, they appear to be fun and maybe slightly irritating. But if you need these tiny yellow monsters to keep quiet for a bit, keep some bananas around. We are sure they will be grateful.
