John Wesley

June Star's eight-year-old brother, John Wesley is almost as nasty as she is, though not quite as bad. This might be due to the fact that he doesn't get the opportunity to say as much. His hobbies include tormenting his grandmother and kicking his father in the kidney through the car seat to get what he wants. Like June Star, he's also very excited by car accidents, though disappointed when there are no fatalities.

The only thing we really want to know about John Wesley is: why he would be named after the founder of the Methodist church? Is the family supposed to be Methodist, or was Bailey enjoying a bad joke?
