THE TALE OF JOHNNY 2 FINGERS
Born at a very young age, John Dale was raised by loving middle-class parents; he grew up in the middle of the Canadian prairies with all the privileges one could ask for. However, John was born with a hideous physical mutation that science could never explain. He was picked on and ridiculed endlessly while growing up, eventually turning to the friendship of insects, snakes, and cartoons.
During his teenage years, he developed a taste for professional wrestling and rock n roll. Realizing he could never be the great wrestler he envisioned, he picked up the guitar. Unfortunately, John's ego spiraled out of control, He began making boisterous and outlandish comments; claiming he was the voice of the unloved and forgotten... Claiming he was a hero... a humanitarian...
Well, John's selfish intentions became all too apparent. He developed a serious addiction to vegan recipes and online video games; becoming increasingly aggressive. He hired a duo of goons (consisting of former pro wrestler, Cannonball Kelly, on drums and the space child, Tangean Travis Geib, on bass) dubbed 'The Deformities' to do his bidding. John was just another good apple turned bad; feeling like the world wronged him and it had a little splainin' to do. He vowed to teach society a lesson, one gig at a time... Johnny 2 Fingers was born.
