Bunky and I frequently watch TV program called Future Ratboy.
I’m Future Ratboy and Bunky is his annoying sidekick, Not Bird, except Bunky’s not a bird and he doesn’t say ‘NOT’ after everything.
I read the cartoon ‘I am not a loser’. The above is not understood by me. Here Bunky’s role is a helper of name ‘Not Bird’. But I am stuck with the following part after the word except. How can we understand ?
The situation is roughly as follows: the writer and Bunky often watch the show Future Ratboy. When they watch, the writer imagines himself as Future Ratboy, and Bunky imagines himself as Not Bird.
The joke / difficulty is that the character Not Bird is a bird. He is called Not Bird because he is a bird who often says ‘NOT’. Bunky is not a bird, and he doesn’t say ‘NOT’, and so the writer is insinuating that Bunky is not a good fit for the role of Not Bird.
