Too cool for school
Joe studied with legendary master of cool The Fons, he spent many happy hours painting the fence and waxing The Fons' car, learning to become mindful, at peace with himself and how to pick out a decent set of Ray Ban's.

The Fon's sensed that his young pupil's powers would soon outgrow his own, so he challenged him to a duel; a large-trousered, pop-locking contest to the sounds of Vanilla Ice, and the rest, as they say, is history.
