According to our Facebook feed – self proclaimed “failed showman on the skids” and unpolished national treasure in the queens crown B.A. Johnston is celebrating a birthday today. No word on how old he is, but given his lifestyle choices, his bones should be feeling in their early fifties.
B.A. unofficially commented on today’s celebration via Twitter….
I dont want to live forever, I just want to live longer than my cat.

He’s currently back his mother house in Hamilton, Ontario preparing for his upcoming “Gremlins 3 – Don’t eat ’em after Midnight” tour. With the corndog supply dwindling, expect to see him at a Tim Hortons near you sometime soon.
