Filthi was born son of Byford, Brother of Al in Memphis, Madagascar. His
parents were two coal miners who died shortly after his 1st birthday,
leaving him to be raised by a colony of termites. His uncanny ability to
point out other peoples' problems naturally led him to a career as an advice
columnist, but only after several years as a department store Santa followed
by a short stint as a guitarist for A Flock of Seagulls. He quit the band
due to an argument and ensuing fisticuffs with the lead singer. To this day
he claims that the song "Iran" was about his experiences growing up within
the termite mound. This claim has yet to be confirmed. He reappeared several
years later writing an advice column for the New York Times under the pen
name Dear Flabby. Since then he could often be found floating through dark
aqueducts, or lurking in dank highway rest stop toilets. Currently he lives
in a monastery in Tucson, Az. His insightful putdowns disguised as advice
can be found on The Beating website on The Beatdown.
