people are just spazzy or as Flippo's wife likes to say,
over-excitable. It started early for Flippo. Early
birthday parties were tricky since he would see the
presents and just rip into them. Even at other kid's
birthday parties. Wrapped packages were just too much
for him to deal with. Internal dialog was consistently
turned off and Flippo was quick to blurt out what ever
was on his mind is a steady stream of conscious river of
techn-babble and tom-geekery. His lopsided report card
reflected his early predisposition to anything with a
circuit. You would find F's and D's in the core classes
such as English and History until he became adept at
projecting answers onto a retinal display hidden on his
clunky set of 20/240 glasses. Math and Computer Science
however, were always straight A's and that's only
because there were letters higher than A. He could
teach not only the class but the teacher as well. You
just knew that if he ever flunked out of school, we'd
all still be working for him due to sheer genius with a
keyboard and logic gate. This, in spite of the spit
exposition that accompanied any sentence that came out
his mouth. Flippo is our kind of guy at Fantasy Geeks
and he makes a solid 2nd round player for your Geek game
roster. Let's take a look at how his scores stack up in
the six Fantasy Geeks game categories.
the Gaming category he begrudgingly scores an 8 for an
undiscovered mic fungus on the Xbox system. This unique
fungus is able to survive on a constant spittle stream
of Orange Fanta and Nacho flavor powder in 2-3 ratio and
of course, at the mouth of deep-sea volcanic vents.
Flippo can eat almost anything (and will if you put it
in front of him) except for one dish, which he has a
very strong allergy to. The disk is Bi Bim Bop and the
allergy, a curious purple coloring of the lips and nose
bridge earns him a 9 for the Physicque, Baby category.
Anything discoloration of the nose bridge should score
pretty well, right??
Flippo will wear branded clothing from any company that
hands out freebies at the CES show which we annually
attends with falsified badges ("it's so easy to crack
their servers"). His prized piece de resistance is an
old X-box hoodie commensurate with curry stains. You'll
get a solid 7 in the Dress Code category for his
wearable salute to Indian food.
may be asking how a lowered Toyota Tercel falls in the
Techmology category but you better pop the hood first.
In the scary netherworld where James Bond and Inspector
Gadget intersect within Flippo's brain, all manner of
technological upgrades have been made to that poor
Tercel. Built in model rocket launchers in the front
are his crowning achievement and are alone worthy of the
9 score in the Techmology category. Just don't every
hit the turn left signal.
an effort to visually display the gene sequence
responsible for his enlarged Adam's apple, he's created
a room sized paper-machete replica of the suspect DNA
sequence. You'll get a 6 in the Hobbies category alone
Finally, his prized possession and no one really knows
why (or cares). A vintage Mr Miyagi deck of cards in
Japanese. We all loved the venerable if cryptic karate
but how did we miss the card set?? Flippo didn't and
his are safe behind a laser matrix over his head board.
This priceless (actually, about 2000 yen) collector's
item will be forever safe and will garner you a solid
score of 7.
you have a chance to grab Flippo and Physique Baby or
Techmology categories look to be your focus, by all
means pick him up on your roster. Just mind the slobber
