Mad, Mad Prince Mongo //

Prince Mongo is an eccentric Memphis institution – a man who claims to be a 333-year-old alien from the planet Zambodia, who keeps his dead relatives’ skeletons in his living room, wears loincloths and rubber chickens to court, loves giving free alcohol to minors, and has run for mayor of Memphis 13 times.
