April Margera because she's truly an inspiration.

Mother Theresa she lived over 100 years and never let them get under her skin.

Joan of Arc because.. Joan of Arc that's why.

And I agree with Albert Hoffman he was all about trying to help his fellow man. Even used himself as a Guinea pig.

I second the vote for Keanu Reeves, lives in a small flat, rides the subway, donated a huge chunk of his salary to the Matrix special effects team
The funny thing is that in some movies he plays VERY undude business guys who realize they cannot be undude anymore cos their life is very miserable as it is. Like 'Sweet November'.

I'm not sure whether I'm late to the party or not, but if no one did before, I wish to nominate Marcus Aurelius

My bad, but I don't have time to read through all the thread's pages, just in case someone else nominated him, please ignore my post  :P

Hey there Dudes!

Back in the days of Socrates, there was a man for his time and place called Aristippus. He was likely the philosophical inspiration for fellow Dude Epicurus, but unfortunately his name has been forgotten across the sands of time. But I happen to think his philosophy suits Dudeism perfectly, and I wrote an article explainin' why I think so. If ya do read it, let me know what ya think.

Good one.
Very Dude like.

Philosophy

The anecdotes which are told of Aristippus (there are many in Diogenes Laėrtius)[14] by no means give us the notion of a person who was the mere slave of his passions, but rather of one who took a pride in extracting enjoyment from all circumstances of every kind, and in controlling adversity and prosperity alike. They illustrate and confirm the two statements of Horace,[15] that to observe the precepts of Aristippus is "to endeavour to adapt circumstances to myself, not myself to circumstances" and[16] that, "every complexion of life, every station and circumstance sat gracefully upon him." Thus when reproached for his love of bodily indulgences, he answered, that "it is not abstinence from pleasures that is best, but mastery over them without ever being worsted".[17] When Dionysius, provoked at some of his remarks, ordered him to take the lowest place at table, he said, "You wish to dignify the seat".[18] His statement "wise people, even though all laws were abolished, would still lead the same life"[19] is a quote sometimes, and erroneously, attributed to the comic poet Aristophanes.[20]

Whether Aristippus was a prisoner to a satrap, grossly insulted and even spit upon by a tyrant, enjoying the pleasures of a banquet, or reviled for faithlessness to Socrates by his fellow-pupils, he maintained the same calm temper. He seemed insulting to Xenophon and Plato, as seen from the Memorabilia, where he maintains a discussion against Socrates in defense of voluptuous enjoyment, and from the Phaedo, where his absence at the death of Socrates, though he was only at Aegina, 200 stadia from Athens, is doubtless mentioned as a reproach. Aristotle, too, calls him a sophist,[21] and notices a story of Plato's speaking to him, with rather undue vehemence, and of his replying with calmness.[22]

Aristippus imparted his doctrine to his daughter Arete who, in turn, imparted it to her son, Aristippus the Younger, who is said to have reduced it to a system. Although his dubious reputation has survived into modern times, his philosophy of ethical hedonism, as its name implies, was not entirely amoral. He admonished his students to never harm others, and cautioned that the pursuit of pleasure ought to be moderated by moral self-restraint.[23]

 I'd like to nominate Slouchy Smurf: he's always chill and peaceful; dresses comfy and walks at a leisurely pace; and is the only smurfling who likes vegetables.
