The Irish wrote a song about him but change his name to Sylvester out of fear of reprisal...
Have you heard about the big strong man?
He lived in a caravan.
Have you heard about the Jeffrey Johnson fight?
Oh, Lord what a hell of a fight.
You can take all of the heavyweights youve got.
Weve got a lad that can beat the whole lot.
He used to ring bells in the belfry,
Now hes gonna fight Jack Demspey.
That was my brother Sylvest (Whats he got?)
A row of forty medals on his chest (big chest!)
He killed fifty bad men in the west; he knows no rest.
Think of a man, hells fire, dont push, just shove,
Plenty of room for you and me.
Hes got an arm like a leg (a ladies leg!)
And a punch that would sink a battleship (big ship!)
It takes all of the Army and the Navy to put the wind up Sylvest.
Now, he thought hed take a trip to Italy.
He thought that hed go by sea.
He dove off the harbor in New York,
And swam like a great big shark.
He saw the Lusitania in distress.
He put the Lusitania on his chest.
He drank all of the water in the sea,
And he walked all the way to Italy.
He thought he take a trip to old Japan.
They turned out a big brass band.
You can take all of the instruments youve got,
We got a lad that can play the whole lot.
And the old church bells will ring (Hells bells!)
The old church choir will sing (Hells fire!)
They all turned out to say farewell to my big brother Sylvest.
Nicolai Tesla experimented with wireless transmission of electrical energy - at the same time, JBP's moustache was discovered to absorb any transmitted energy. The electrical power could then be discharged as a military lightening weapon. This is how Tesla helped JBP defeat the Nazis, with his fearsome electro-Gauss-capacitor-stache-death-ray-in-a-B52.
JBP taught Geddy Lee to sing.... Little known JBP factoid: He played bass for Tito Jackson offstage during complicated dance numbers and he sang backup for Sheryl Crow. His mustache seems to dance within earshot of the Grateful Dead Music playing. JBP finds it annoying because he doesn't even like the Dead.
