Tombola Guy and I: An Interview

by lilmarron

Tombola Guy has a certain aura that none other have in Neopia. All we truly know is that we visit him daily to get freebies. Then we leave. Is that all there is to Tombola Guy? No. For I have uncovered the truth about him. All your questions shall be answered and by the end of this article you shall know him like the back of your hand.

When I first met him in Mystery Island, I knew I had to reveal the guy behind the mask. I had played Tombola before, but never had I looked into the eyes of Tombola Guy. He was nervous when I actually spoke to him. I had to bug him for two weeks just to get the chance to interview him during a lunch. We ate at the Tropical Food Shop in the Southwest corner of the island.

LILMARRON: So, what is your full name?

TOMBOLA GUY: Mm, this is a good Lime Starfish!

L: Will you please answer my question, sir?

T.G.: Two F. Sloth. No kidding.

L: Well, Two, where were you born?

TG: I was born in VirtuPets Space Station.

L: Wow. How did you end up on Mystery Island? Who are your parents? Did you have any siblings? Why did you leave VirtuPets Station?

TG: I don't like speaking about this much. This is ground breaking news. I'm Dr. Frank Sloth's son - actually a clone, or a younger version. I was raised to take his place when he would be gone. I had no siblings. I left the space station because Dad and I disagreed on many things. I believed in peace and tranquility. We split ways. [He blows his nose and dabs his eyes with a few tissues.]

L: Do you ever keep in contact with your father? [I pat his back sympathetically.]

TG: No, he did send me a holiday card, but when I finally told him I wouldn't join his evil schemes he wiped me off the family tree.

L: Well, why do you look so different from the Doctor? Will you ever take off that unfashionable mask?

TG: I obviously look a lot like my father underneath this mask and it would scare people and confuse them into thinking I was him. Concealing my face is easier and it doesn't ruin my business. I am not green because I got a tan. I love surfing.

L: Why did you choose the Tombola as your career?

T.G.: It's easy work. I just stand there. Sometimes I even just use a cardboard version of me to sit there while I go out for lunch. Don't tell my bosses.

L: One last question. When us Neopians don't win on your little game, why do we get such junk as consolation prizes?

T.G.: The Tombola is a low-budget machine. You don't exactly pay to use it, do you? You should appreciate it more. Us Islanders put a lot of work into it just for you cheapskates to use it.

L: I'm sorry. Do you ever wonder what could've happened if you did join your father?

T.G.: Welllllllll... Neopia would've been obsolete. One Sloth is bad. But two? Indestructible.

We ended our lunch after Two said he had to return to his duty. Although I know possibly everything there is to know about him, there is still this mystery that he continues to have. Who would've known he was Dr. Sloth's son. Maybe he is a hero because he didn't join his father. That's one less bad guy in Neopia... just a million to go.

Author's Note: This article is fictional, but an interesting theory, wouldn't you agree? Or is it a theory....
