Non-Exhaustive List of my Evil Clones

Daniel Roy. I realize this is a pretty common name… And it does make it much harder to Google myself than if I were named, say, ‘Jelatinous Marcelathon’. But Google myself I did… And I found out there are many, many Daniel Roys out there.

They’re all obviously my evil clones. Here they are.

MIT Daniel Roy



Why he’s evil: He’s a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at MIT, dealing with the “intersection of computer science and probability”. If that doesn’t sound like the evil plot for the bad guy of the next Die Hard, I don’t know what is.

Further proof of evilness: 15-year cello player; uses a Dvorak keyboard; uses the word ‘skillz’ in his curriculum vitae



Why he’s evil: He registered the domain name and puts a simple page with broken links on it. Obviously an AI trying to pass as a human being.

Further proof of evilness: Wrote Facebook applications; registered the domain name so I couldn’t get it; also has danielroy [at] gmail [dot] com.

Cajun Daniel Roy



Why he’s evil: He plays mandolin in a Cajun band. I mean come on.

Further proof of evilness: Admits to having been created when somebody combined “extra firm tofu with Zycofax, and [added] half a cup of muddy water”. Oooook. Also, uses the words ‘overflowing cornucopia’ in his bio.

Emo Daniel Roy



Why he’s evil: He’s Emo. ’nuff said.

Further proof of evilness: Spells his name “DaNiEl RoY”; current occupation is “Shop Floor Assistant and Return Operator”.

Director Daniel Roy



Why he’s evil: He’s the “District 5 Director”. That makes him, like, a villain in a SF dystopia.

Further proof of evilness: Was born in Sept-île, where I was also born.

Poet Daniel Roy



Why he’s evil: He’s a poet; that makes him automatically mad. Has published 17(!!!) poetry anthologies in French, which makes him possibly the most well-known of my evil clones.

Further proof of evilness: His website is, which sounds like Daniel Roy from the Mirror Universe; he is a certified highschool teacher.


There are many more Daniel Roys out there, but the evilness of these ones is overpowering. I’ll get back to you when I find a way to return them to their evil, parallel dimension. Here’s a partial list of Daniel Roys I haven’t covered:

The Daniel Roy Corporation
Musician Daniel Roy
Semi-Pro Hockey Player Daniel Roy
Cowboy Daniel Roy
Fisherman Daniel Roy
Norwegian Daniel Roy
Muscle Daniel Roy
Australian Emo Daniel Roy
Daniel Roy III (I guess he’s a Pope or something)

So many Daniel Roys, so little time…

  1. My money’s on Director Daniel Roy as being the evil-est.

  2. I think the Norwegian Daniel Roy is planning something…

  3. I think you could start an all-Daniel Roy Village People cover band — you’ve already got the fisherman, cowboy and muscle versions.

  4. The first clone admits to creating and his web page has a lot of day-glo yellow on it.

    I think those are indicative of the work of an evil mastermind.

  5. brilliant!!! thanks for including me ;)… and i agree, mando in a “cajun” band, very evil with a capital V.

  6. Hi Daniel Roy! It’s great to hear from you. I’d shake your hand if we met, but I’m afraid we’ll spontaneously combust in a matter-antimatter anihilation!
