“A man who's gut is as big as his heart.”
Named after a Street Fighter II move. He has at times been mistakenly called pregnant. Lop Sop Dogen trying to make a difference released the didymo virus into the Manawatu River, to purify it of the harmful effects of fluoridation. This over the space of 3 months has turned his parents, friends and pet cat into docile vegetables.
“A big boned chap,” his mother always said in his defence, before she turned into an eggplant.
Because of his tough skin Lop Sop is more resistant to the very literal dehumanising. But he is beginning to grow roots from the soles of his feet and knows he must take action before he, like everyone else in town gets minced and packaged into a frozen bag of stir fry mixed vegetables.
Using his knowledge of high school biology and hydroponics, he tries to foil the plans of MAF agent Chris Taylor (who drinks bottled water); he has been on his case ever since that time he took a dump in the river when he was 11.
Can he save his friends, pet cat and dream girl Salma (now a watermelon) and foil the devious plans of agent Chris Taylor?

Please help Lop Sop Dogen as he is facing legal action and cannot pay this fine on his own.
