Mayor Sayso is not only the mayor of Funkeystown; he is also the twin brother of the late Dr. Tinker. While Tinker was born a genius with all things technical, Sayso was instead blessed with being gifted in both politics and diplomacy. Despite this gift though, Sayso, has cultivated an appearance of being an easily distracted, mostly harmless figurehead of Funkey culture.
While the mayor of Funkeystown comes off as being a bit absent minded and harmless, this appearance is a highly calculated act by the mayor. Mayor Sayso has the ability to listen well and comprehend all of the different tribes of Funkeys. He has a deep understanding of Funkey nature and its diversity, and uses wisdom at all times, communicating with respect when dealing with each Funkeys differences. This acute sense of diplomacy makes Mayor Sayso a key player in the direction of Funkeys culture.
The mayor is in fact the mastermind and key architect behind the Funkeys association for resisting tyranny, or F.A.R.T. as it’s commonly known. F.A.R.T.’s mission is to defeat the forces of master lox and remove his foul stench of conformity from Terrapinia! With their code of silence, secret meeting locations, and extensive training in espionage techniques, the members of F.A.R.T. are known for being silent but deadly.
Master Lox evil henchmen are constantly sniffing around Funkeystown trying to discover the secret hideout of the F.A.R.T. and discover who their leader is. If say-so’s position as the leader of F.A.R.T was known by Master Lox, he would be in grave danger. In order to fool the minions of master lox the mayor portrays himself as a bumbling old bureaucrat, a seemingly harmless Funkey who in no way could be responsible for F.A.R.T.
