B. Louise was born in 2009. She was left at the Convent of the Sacred Fart by her parents who couldn’t handle her Benjamin Button Disease. She ran away from the sisters to join the Circus. There she honed her drinking and barking skills and quickly worked up the ranks to the Circus Ringleader. Dying from Acute Boredom, she fled the circus to become a housewife to her husband.

Now she wears the pants and the skirts in the family. She has three little fur babies, Luna, Solar, Eclipse. You can catch B. Louise live and in technicolor at a brewery around the twin cities hosting fabulous Bingos and getting too drunk off of beer.
