Tropers / Snicklin

Snicklin Is a male troper from the United States. He is currently living it up in the Sunshine State. Feel free to leave a note.

Snicklin joined TV Tropes in 2011 to sate his boredom on the forums. Since he has gained some notoriety as a forum user, he has picked up a more mature attitude toward the forum community where it counts.

Snicklin includes examples of:

  • Afraid of Needles: Snicklin gets uncomfortable when his eyes are in proximity of anything sharp (needles, pencils, cardboard) as a result of an incident with a thornbush during early childhood.
  • Apologizes a Lot: Snicklin has been mistaken for a Canadian. His habit of saying "sorry" to the slightest offenses, even on behalf of other people, has done more harm than good.
  • Catch Phrase: "{Is bread}" was a phrase typically used by Snicklin when he would role play as a loaf of bread on the forums, attributed by betterthanstrawberry. It was a very moot point for him that he may return to in the future.
  • Creepy Child: Snicklin had a few shameful years as a to-himself, low-hygeine, DS-playing, preteen larva.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: The reason many of his jokes fall dead is because he's too technical and gets caught up in details.
  • Forgets to Eat: As a result, Snicklin is a funny little wafer of a man.
  • The Gadfly: To balance out his very civil social life, Snicklin likes derailing conversations (i.e. shytposting) on TV Tropes.
    • Part of Sniklin's technique is writing about insignificant topics with the pretense of significant purpose.
  • Giftedly Bad: Snicklin's online ego is like North Korea's new nuke—designed with provocation in mind, but too small for anyone to notice the impact.
  • Hippie Parents: Snicklin's mother and father met in Key West and raised him a vegetarian.
  • It Runs in the Family: Snicklin comes from a long line of people prone to unpredictable bouts of dance-offs.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Snicklin is still, unfortunately, a big baby when it comes to house centipedes; his first encounter with a house centipede was not a pleasant one. To elaborate, 
  • Not So Above It All: Snicklin's behavior hints at his love for being anti-status-quo like a true millennial complex patient.
  • Old Shame: Snicklin has an large collection of comic books which he wrote and illustrated himself somewhere in a landfill. To be fair, they could have been much worse.
  • Real Men Cook: Empanadas, omelets, and Greek burgers are some of Snicklin's most successful products.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: In real life, Snicklin struggles at translating his thoughts into speech. The big fancy terms he uses are usually meant to disguise his below-average ability to communicate.
    • His knowledge of big words is greater than his understanding of them, which makes for some funny conversation with him.
    • Snicklin once went on a rampage trying to talk to an older person using utter gibberish that was intended to sound like formal speech. Maybe that moment was really uncomfortable, but it's a great moment to think back on.
  • True Neutral: This page redirects from VERY Neutral Breadbou Funposting At Incredible Average Speed
    • He's not quite a bleeding heart, but not quite a hawk
    • He's not quite a geek, but not quite a jock
    • He's into classics but is relatively new
    • He hates making friends but loves talking to them too.
