Billy-Bob

(aka Dreadhead Billy-Bob)

File Name: Horatio T. Wesson of Auburn, Alabama.
Notes: The Dreadheads' names are a play on Smith & Wesson handgun manufacturer, actually located in Springfield, Massachusetts. Also, Winston Smith was the lead character in George Orwell's 1984. Auburn, home of Auburn University, was a town built up by the G.I. Bill. Located about 35 miles northwest of Columbus, Georgia, it is also the hometown of Beach Head, as well as Lt. Gen. Hal Moore and musician Jimmy Buffett.



Previous character: Joe-Bob
Next character: Otis

DREADHEAD BILLY-BOB considers himself to be the most handsome Dreadhead, despite the fact that all six are identical cousins (a fact that still baffles local doctors). He nonetheless manages to be quite suave and debonair, effortlessly smooth-talking his associates and enemies alike. The consummate scam artist and con man, he particularly enjoys using his talents on ZARANA; needless to say, this does not sit well with DREADNOK ROAD PIG.
BILLY-BOB's cocky attitude got him into serious trouble years ago, when he foolishly tried to steal away BEACHHEAD's girlfriend at a local dance. The Dreadhead had to sneak out of the resulting brawl before his face sustained any damage, and to this day BILLY-BOB holds a grudge against this G. I. Joe for embarrassing him.
"No matter what disguise Zarana uses, she will never appear as gorgeous as I am!"
