Actually Interesting Things about John:

He once ate an entire Jets Pizza by himself
Has never worn sandals or flip flops
Went down the stairs in a cardboard box when he was 10 suffering a minor concussion
Walked into the girls bathroom his first day of middle school
At age 4 Told the Santa Claus at the mall that he wanted to be "bald headed"
Still has all of his Star Wars action figures
Used to call himself in pretending to be his father senior year of high school
Favorite president is Grover Cleveland
Can only tie his shoe using the two bunny ear method

Enough silliness time to pay homage to his heroes
