The Human Blockhead, Rubberman, and The Human Pincushion
As an infant, Zja 'Dega was abandoned on Krembo K's doorstep. Krembo did his best to make this small, strange child happy, but his efforts seemed to be in vain. Until one day, when Krembo had all but given up hope, he heard a gleeful shriek and found Zja 'Dega with a stick pressed deep inside his nose. As Zja grew into a man the sticks turned into metal objects. Today, Zja 'Dega travels with the Blue Monkey Sideshow, kept in a cage, let out only to share his perverse hobbies with an astonished audience.
