Turns out he’s a real guy. I think he’s inspiring. Here’s the obit.
The name: when he was in jail for stealing hubcaps, when he was just a wee lad, he met a man called Awful Knofel.
WACTAC connection: Instead of being on WACTAC as a teen he was a great ski jumper in Butte, Montana. WACTAC member Olivia participates in a mundane form of skiing (nordic) and has an American flag jumpsuit.
Kanye West connection: Evel Kanyevel music video for Touch the Sky. Get it?
And his start: At the tender age of 27 he became the co-owner of a motorcycle store. A true entrepreneur, he decided to attract customers by he announcing he would jump his motorcycle 40 feet over parked cars and a box of rattlesnakes and continue on past a mountain lion tethered at the other end. Before 1,000 people, he did the stunt as promised but failed to fly far enough; his bike came down on the rattlesnakes. The audience was in awe. “ Right then,” he said, “ I knew I could draw a big crowd by jumping over weird stuff.”
God Bless America.
