This article is about the poem. You may be thinking about the song.

Flippy X Flaky is a two-way poem written by Sleep Mast R and influenced by the poem Worst Day Ever? by Chanie Gorkin. It made its air on deviantART on November 7, 2017.

It has been designed for both supporters and haters of the Flippy X Flaky shipping.


This poem is freestyle in that it does not use any rigid rhyming or meter structure. However, its lines are divided with a different kind of purpose. If the poem is read normally from the top line to the bottom, the author is describing negative feelings about the Flippy-Flaky shipping. However, if one starts at the bottom line and reads upwards, as indicated in italics at the end, the resulting poem is very supportive of the shipping. This is enabled by a clever use of English sentence combinations that change the meaning around.

Poem Text

Flippy X Flaky is a shipping I dislike

And trust me, it just wouldn't be right to say that

The couple goes well together

Because the the important thing is that

Flippy turns into an evil murderer every now and then.

It doesn't really matter that

There are a lot of fans of the F X F shipping out there...

They are entitled to their own opinions.

Sure I've seen many people spread hatred over the shipping, and

I have my reasons to see the F X F shipping that way as well.

I quite fancy I enjoy sunshine and rainbows in the outdoor nature, yet

Flippy and Flaky are just cartoon characters

And I don't care that

Flaky ever prepared a birthday party for Flippy

That, right there, is the reason why

I'd wish that Flippy and Flaky were permanently separated.

And there's no way that

Flaky would survive every car ride and date


Flippy's Post-Traumatic Stress disorder would get in the way

Furthermore, I honestly doubt that

The two share many common traits...


A loving bond between them is visible

Only when both Flippy and Flaky are very happy

It's not like the Flippy-Flaky pairing is good

After all, when you think about it more deeply,

A pairing between two rabbits or two beavers

Would be really, really cute. I just can't say the same for

A shipping between a green bear and a red porcupine

Which doesn't seem to fit together in my personal opinion.

Petunia X Handy

Is totally a better shipping than

Flippy X Flaky

Soon you'll understand how much

The F X F pair is hurtful to my heart

And never, by any means, will you hear me say that

Flippy X Flaky is my favorite shipping

Now read from bottom to top.
