Sinister Dexter is a fellow with a broken spirometer. At least according to Principia Discordia (page 38), anyway.

According to the book, the name is Latin for "left right", which sounds like "a perfect name for libertarian anarchist".

"Meet Finnigan Sinister and Ramone Dexter, contract killing kings with chalk outlines round their souls..."

Sinister Dexter - Gun Lovin' Criminals

Sinister Dexter is also the name of a popular series that's currently running in the British comic 2000 AD, penned by Dan Abnett.

The series follows the exploits of a pair of assassins-for-hire - Finnigan Sinister & Ramone Dexter - in the future city of Downlode.
Fast-moving, funny & sometimes poignant, it's one of the most popular strips currently running in the magazine.

The series excels in spoofing popular gangster movies, and Abnett also has great fun playing around with character names - Gaseous Klé & Philly O'Fisch are two particularly amusing examples.
