Gusty O'Windflap was an associate of Richie and Eddie's whom they speak very fondly of, and once upon a time installed an air compressor under their kitchen sink. Apparently a specialist in the field of air pumps, Gusty died whilst attempting a feat that became known as "The Human Balloon." Parts of his body were spread over several counties in the incident. According to Eddie, the accident occurred when the nozzle of one of Gusty's air compressors accidentally got lodged in his rectum. Gusty's plight is recounted in Bottom Live.
