Appearing In: Street Fighter Alpha (PS2)
Zack: The hole in his mohawk makes him faster.
Dr. Thorpe: Only when he's running sideways though. Also, the strategically curved shoes make him faster when he's falling down on his face.
Zack: He looks so tragic. Like he lost control of his rage and he killed a bunch of Keebler elves with that screwdriver. "Oh lawd, what has birdie done, what has birdie done? They said tha O'Boise's was O-boisterous, but I hain't had no notion what they would come ta."
Dr. Thorpe: He's so hunched an melancholy, he's got the tragic air of a literary halfwit like Lenny from Of Mice and Men. He just wanted to pet the elves.
Zack: Yeah, I was envisioning some sort of Faulknerian man-child. He has no concept of his own strength or the fragility of those poor elves.
Dr. Thorpe: He's got a hole in his mohawk from getting kicked in the head by a mule when he was a boy.
Zack: Definite evidence of head trauma. I think you can see the outline of a hoof on his skull.
Dr. Thorpe: He's got a potato peeler in his hand. Maybe he joined the army and got put on permanent KP duty because of his low mental faculties.
Zack: I think this is what Japanese people think black hoodlums look like in America: enormous, sad, chained, with a lockpick, a grudge and some sort of cross between a prison uniform and a Buck Rogers costume.
Dr. Thorpe: You'll never see a Japanese depiction of a black man without a knife in his hand. So basically they're like the American media. Think about it: whenever you see Birdie on the news, he's committing a crime.
Zack: Yeah, they never talk about the good things Birdie does like clean our buildings after hours or provide valuable data in our uninformed observational Hepatitis studies.
