Ferdynand Kiepski, also known as Ferdek is the main protagonist in famous polish comedy series Świat według Kiepskich. His laziness and rabble are almost legend. Head of the family, unemployed (since 13 December 1981, the day when martial law was declared in Poland) father of two, who has a penchant for canned beer and trying to prove that he is an unappreciated genius. His character is similar to that of Peggy Bundy, who enjoys the finer things in life yet refuses to work for them, as well is similar character to Homer Simpson. Ferdek comes up with ridiculous get-rich-quick schemes that, due to his own faults and comic coincidences, always fail. His favorite pastimes are drinking "Mocny Full" ("Strong Full") beer and watching television. He made his debut in the first episode - Umarł odbiornik, niech żyje odbiornik! (TV is dead, long live the TV!)
