- He fails primarily as a business man; I remember reading the exercise in boasting that was his interview with a trade publication and thinking "Does this guy even know how to run a restaurant?" Not only did he malign the man who gave him his start in life, he smirkingly told the interview the secrets to his illusory success: practices that would have made the business fail in a good economy and thus deprive him of a fall-guy to pass the buck to.
- He also fails as a husband and father; what I see when I look at Funky is a dry drunk who can't find it within himself to provide his wife and stepson with what they really need: his emotional support.
- He fails as a cousin: When Wally came home last year, Funky treated him like something he dug out of his ear; the man could have wound up killing himself or lighting up the paper boy for all Fat Boy knew.
- He even fails as a friend to Les; instead of his being the chief source of support in his pal's life, he takes a back seat to Bull and Crazy Harry.
