Hi! This is Fafnir. Are you Fafnir, too? Oh, that's too bad, you have so much in common.
Fafnir is a part-time biped and freelance astronaut. While he may seem small and unassuming, when confronted with danger he can become even smaller and more unassuming, which acts as a form of natural camouflage in order to evade cars and people and other large predators. He is the author of several bestselling and critically-acclaimed novels, but he has forgotten what they're called and what they're about and his local library won't let im take em out on accounta all these late fees. His favorite color is blue, but don't tell that to blue. It would hurt pink's feelings.
Fafnir first got into politics through the vegetable rights movement, but he's not some kinda crazy dreamer. He knows we've gotta start incrementally, getting the vote for charismatic flora like creeping feathermoss an workin from there. He is also the president, vice-president and treasurer of the New England Ground Sloth Preservation Society. Membership's been down lately, but we're hoping for big things with this summer's recruitment drive.
Fafnir currently has two Pulitzers, a MacArthur Fellowship and the Johnsonian Professorship of Philosophy at Columbia University. The university has politely asked about it several times but finders keepers.
Are you sure you're not Fafnir? Check again. There! You were Fafnir all along.

I never heard of you until last night... or I did and it jammed... but you've given me epilepsy and this strange certitude there is a Fafniristan. I don't even know if any of this is for the best.
According to quantum mechanics, just because you "check again" and find that you are Fafnir, doesn't mean you were Fafnir all along.
Are Fafnir and Giblets the rabbits in the ship in the new banner? I like to imagine they are. I think Giblets is the one with the telescope.
Hey, it's the God-given right of man to find patterns where none exist!
