  Bogeyman - Uncyclopedia
Bogeyman was born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised by an adoptive family.
Bogeyman's career and popularity was immediately boosted by his performance in "Pothole", but began to drop as he did smaller roles towards the end of the 80's and during the early 90's, mostly due to the fact that he spent much time grieving after his adoptive mother passed away from cancer.
Bogeyman denied the accusations, giving credit for his sudden weight-loss to his all vegan diet which he was inspired to start after being diagnosed with diabetes in 2004, possibly as a result of his alcoholism.

I don't think it's necessary to think through everything you write in a discussion board--so much interesting brain work would be lost or ignored if one were to write only finished, polished thoughts (just had a brief mental image of a polished thought--kind of a cross between a shiny pebble and a marble).
