Fiddles McGinty is a fake Irishman. Not to be confused with a real Irishman like Paddy Irishman. He claims to have been born in Dublin in 1863 but was really born in Gary, Indiana, in 2002. The Mayor of Gary has issued many statements denying that Fiddles was from there, mainly due to the fact that being associated with Fiddles made people hate Gary, Indiana even more. And if that isn't a measure of how bad Fiddles is, what else could be?
Fiddles McGinty was born on the auld sod in Dublin in 1863. He enjoyed the taste of the shamrock shake and a fresh cat steak. He is notorious for popularizing the rarity of the shamrock shake, going so far as to encourage McDonald's to only offer it for 2 weeks each year. Before that, they offered it all year. When he was 15 he read the works of James Joyce. When he was 20 he read the works of the obscure and ridiculous madman known as Nicholas "Loonie" Sequeira. That drove him totally insane, and not in a good way. He began drawing odd stick figures everywhere, and was eventually run out of his hometown as a lunatic. He wandered the countryside for years, drawing wildly inappropriate stick figure dioramas wherever he could.
Fiddles McGinty is well known for his stupid-looking hat. Take it off, Fiddles! Actually, he's well known for it because it is infested with lice and bedbugs. He refuses to get that treated, however, saying that because of that, "a little of him will always remain wherever he goes." His neighbors hate him for it.
Fiddles McGinty has collaborated with Honda to create the Fiddlesisabitchmobile, which plays a soothing Irish tune about Captain Farrow as it drives down the narrow cobblestone lanes at the wee hours. He also is a bit of a collector of antiquities and horribly bad stick-figure comics. He still hasn't found King Lud, but when he does find King Lud, he hopes to go out for a coffee with him. Or a Pink Raspberry Combo on a day when he feels pretty.
- Lately, Fiddles pretended to collaborate with Pitbull, noting that he didn't want to collab with House Of Pain because that would be too predictable, and the House of Pain hasn't been in effect since 1996. When asked about the collaboration, Pitbull denied even knowing the lice-ridden fake.
- Fiddles McGinty is oddly offended by Lucky Charms, but not because they're Irish, because he's also offended by Frosted Flakes. In fact, he's offended by all cereal, claiming that none of them are as crunchy as the lice he pulls from his hat.
- Fiddles McGinty gave Boots Riley's movie Sorry to Bother You 2.5 out of 5 stars on Letterboxd, then raised it up to 3 stars because of the part with the claymation. He is oddly drawn to all things clay, and has been banned from several arts and crafts stores because of that.
- Fiddles recently teamed up with one of his oldest pals, Smartass Dan, to make a new meme. But it didn't take off because Fiddles just isn't very photogenic with that fivehead and a mess of unruly reddish hair.
