Professor of synergistic Orkanography ShmpooB&it, more commonly known as the Shampoo Bandit, received a Fulbrawler Scholarship to attend doctoral Tarantric studies at the CalTech School of Lancelotromy.

In August 2017, the Bandit entered theU and it was immediately clear his search was over. Shampoo is dedicated to nurturing, educating and celebrating those who share his unquenchable thirst for knowledge and strategic enlightenment.
