The Prince of Puke

" His favorite childhood memory was seeing real blood on the seat of a wrecked car when visiting a scrap yard and fantasizing about lethal car crashes. "

" He is obsessed with true-crime and regularly attends gory trials all over the US, where he often sees the same faces in the public galleries. "

" Subscribes to more than 80 magazines. Also goes to see just about every movie that comes out and hardly ever rents movies. "

" Has taught classes at the Patuxent Institution, a correctional facility located halfway between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. The classes are meant as rehabilitation therapy for convicted killers, in which they learn to write about their violent fantasies rather than act them out. "

" Bears such a strong resemblance to actor Steve Buscemi that as a joke, John Waters sent out cards with a photo of Buscemi made up to look like Waters. "

" Grew his thin pencil-line mustache in honor of Little Richard. "

" There is a special section of his immense book collection devoted to Liberace. "

" Many of his characters have alliterated names (Dawn Davenport, Francine Fishpaw, Tracy Turnblad, Penny Pingleton, Sylvia Stickles). "

" As a youth he would watch adult-only films at the local drive-in, with binoculars. "

He has a plastic food collection, a collection of serial killer action figures, and a prop electric chair (used in Female Trouble).
