Dear world, let me tell you a story. It's about a boxer named Benny who came from nothing to become something. A real rags-to-riches story. The true American internet-famous animal dream.

Raised by two hard-working parents, Mike and Chris, in the dreary depths of of "the Big Apple" (St. Marks Place eek), Benny knew he would have to stand out in order to survive the crust punks and loud-ass sirens.


Benny will best be known for changing the way we view boxers. Normally stubborn and unwilling to participate in costume contests, Benny broke stereotypes and boundaries. The limit did not exist for him.

Benny was known by all at the world's most important dog costume contest, the Tompkins Square Halloween dog parade. His impact was real and quick. It was Benny's world, we were just living in it.


That was great and all, but his biggest success and most well-known achivement was Butthead.
