In a weird galaxy, in a weird alternate universe, there is a peculiar planet called Weirdtopia. It has an advanced civilization with big cities, big jungles, big seas, big creatures, big starships(wich everyone likes), big launchers and even a big language very similar to ours. The only thing is that its much stranger than usual... So grab your pants and prepare to enter the weird!
About this creation
NOTE: I humbly ask you to listen to this while reading the story:
Handolf Randall Marcus, or Handy Randy as his friends call him, has a weird and sad story...
Born in the poor district of Capitol , he grew up admist dirt, violence and bad dance numbers. Abused by his colleagues due to his handyness, he always dreamt of a better life.
To escape poverty, he began working as a typist in a local typing company. The job seemed to fit like a glove at first, but, since he couldn't see and type at the same time (for physiological reasons) and never learned to touch type, he got involved in a terrible accident at the office, wich led to three wounded, five temporarily paralized, one potato smashed, six deliveries of pizza delayed, one burnt avocato and, of course, his dismission.
But he did not give up, and soon got hired as construction worker. The fact that he has no arms (even being a giant hand), however, could not be overcome, and he spent months there doing nothing but holding sacks of cement and serving canapés to the workes during the lunch breaks. Frustrated, but not defeated, he quit in the hope of a better job.
He them tried all sorts of things: Food taster (fired due to putting his fingers in all the molten chocolate bins); customer service attendant (dismissed due to harassing female co-workers); Sign holder (temporary job); Sign language interpreter(quit due to boredom); even as a dentist helper (he'd rather not talk about this one). But he couldn't fit anywhere...
Eventually, he gave up all hope, wandering aimlessly trough the woods, deserts and convenience stores all around Weirdtopia... It was them that he heard his call. A call to greatness! A call to be a mascot of a nerdy fan group*!! He was touched by joy and filled with it! ... Until he found out there was no payment and all he had to do is make poses and stuff... Well, at least he gets a handfull of food and a decent shelter, wich makes him pretty OK with the whole situation...
Just in case you want, here's a modest video I made with instructions for building him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBrpRKfRp18&feature=g-all-u
And thats all, folks! Stay tuned for more.
