Pål Pot Pamparius (pronounced pol) (born 18 June 1969) is the stage name of Pål Bøttger Kjærnes a member of Norwegian band Turbonegro. He is one of the original members of Turbonegro and formed the band in late 1980s alongside Happy-Tom and Rune Rebellion. In the band he plays the guitar and keyboards and is dressed as a leather soldier and wears a golden German army helmet, being dubbed the "Human Dildo" by fellow band member Happy-Tom.

He is presumably named after Cambodian Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot and the pizza-restaurant Pamparius in Kolbotn, which he started and used to work at. Turbonegro made a song called The Age Of Pamparius as a tribute to Pamparius and his restaurant. Pål is a big fan of the American Thrash metal band Slayer and is married with children.
