| Character Information
John is the gay owner of Cockamamie's Collectibles Shop, an offbeat store filled with various "camp" items.
He first appears when he shows that "a very old figurine" belonging to the Simpsons was just an old liquor bottle, quickly striking up a friendship with the family. Whilst exploring the Simpson's house searching for any value in the items there, Homer takes a shine to him. However, upon hearing that John is a homosexual, Homer turns against him. The rest of the family continue to enjoy John's company, with him taking them on a tour of Springfield. After a while Homer fears that John's homosexuality is rubbing off on Bart and decides to take him hunting. After Homer has sustained a severe beating from a group of reindeer, John saves him, scaring the reindeer off with a Japanese robot Santa Claus. With this act he earns Homer's trust. He is seen wearing Homer's "Pin Pals" bowling shirt, which Marge Simpson presumably gave away. It is hinted that John has been dating Waylon Smithers, Jr..
He attended the Green Day concert.
John was on the gay dating app U.S. Male Service.
