During the 1940s, Professor Fabotnik
was "the most famous advocate of atavism, the practice of regressing
to the animal state" and "could allegedly become an ape at will."
Rabis Quentin Fabotnik, (Ph.F.T.), "The Saddle-Sore Psychiatrist", was
a "biologist-mathematician-theologian-chef" from Brooklyn who wrote
many books and papers, among them "Treatise On The Seduction Of
Fascists" and the self-help treatise "How To Gang-Up On Your Hang-
Ups...And Beat Them Into Submission". He also had an advice column
called "Ask Dr. Fabotnik" in the magazine 'Insipid Romances'.
Fabotnik lost his mind and mutilated himself to death. He parked his
car in the middle of the street in front of his house at 2914
Flapping Rosebud Lane, and, entering the house, proceeded to kill
himself in front of his wife, Embezella. With a penknife, Fabotnik
sliced his face open on both sides from mouth to ear, broke his spine
in two, chewed off his lower lip piece by piece, gouged out his eyes
with his fingers, beat his face until his nose shattered, punched out
his teeth, stuck pencils deep into his ears, tried (in vain) to bite
off his tongue, then, finally, collapsed (with a certain degree of
precision) and split his head open, probably intentionally, so that
his brains "spewed lavishly onto the floor." He is survived by his pet, Ben the Dog.
Created by Steve Gerber in a 1971 story published on stevegerber.com titled "Fabotnik: One
Man's Ragnarok". He was portrayed in photographs by Tony Isabella.
