Joshua Faye Saunders - KingCobraJFS - seen here with his hat during varying stages of decomposition.

Josh 'KingCobraJFS' Saunders is a YouTube chud and documentary star, who lives in Casper, Wyoming. These are his stories.



Pre YouTube Era[]

Josh was born in Casper, Wyoming, but his family moved to Valley City, North Dakota when Josh was very young. They had previously spent time in the communities of South Lake Tahoe, California, as well as Miles City and Glendive, Montana, where his father Clinton Saunders (born 1969) owned and operated gymnastics clubs. Josh is estranged from his troubled biological mother, who apparently had a rather difficult upbringing in Idaho. His father, who was awarded sole custody of young Josh, remarried in 1996.

His family returned to Casper from North Dakota, where Josh eventually graduated from Natrona County High School.  He was bullied a lot because of his Aspergers syndrome and was often accused of being "creepy" for sexually assaulting girls. This was admitted by Josh on stream 3/7/2021. His excuse was "they were totally into me". Which of course, they were not. At some point he was on the wrestling team, where he remained on the team long enough to receive a letterman jacket before deciding the sport was "gay", resulting in his departure from the team.  He discovered the band Cradle of Filth and began to identify as a goth. At 18, he got a tattoo of the "Cool S" everybody drew in elementary school, calling it the symbol of his new religion.

Chapter 1 (2011 - 2012)[]

Beginnings (Late 2011 - Early 2012)[]

Josh appears on YouTube under the name "gothickingcobra52".  He refers to himself simply as "Gothic King Cobra".  Josh has recently graduated high school and lives with his parents in between stints at the Boxelder Job Corps.  He begins to upload videos discussing current events, his beliefs, and his music. He talks much faster than he does in his current videos and has a middle-parted bowl cut.

Josh gets in his routine of making daily videos while not at job corps,  referring to his viewers as "YouTube", and starts to take the shape of the YouTube personality we know today.

Many of Josh's earlier videos are part of a series titled "Guitar Insight", where he explains his guitar methods and techniques. He also introduces his dummy Shon during this time as a part of his comedy skit series titles "Shon and Saunders".

At some point during this era, Josh has brief stints working at the local Burger King, as well as a pizza restaurant. He has provided minimal detail about these two jobs.

Josh meets his first girlfriend, Stephanie, at job corps.  They have their first date at the job corps SAC.  He loses his virginity to her in 2 minutes and 46 seconds in the job corps bathroom, which he recorded on his iPod, but lost the video.  

The first mention of Josh's chi, when he talks about demonstrating it on one of the other students is shown off.  

The first appearance of Josh's wand crafting is made. 


Kicked Out of Job Corps Saga (First Half of 2012)[]

Josh is kicked out of job corps after being caught smoking marijuana. He moves back into his parent's house and continues to make videos.


Golden Corral Saga (Fall 2012)[]

Josh gets a job at Wendy's, where his job is to keep the lobby and restrooms clean and refill the teas (something he struggles with).  His parents get him a studio apartment in November of 2012, where he still lived as of December 2020. At this point, his lifestyle becomes much more unhealthy as he begins smoking perpetually and eating a diet consisting entirely of unhealthy junk food.  Stephanie visits him in between her time at job corps.

Josh's friend Chris begins appearing in many videos.  When Stephanie is visiting, Josh continues to make hour-long YouTube videos while she sits silently on camera.  Josh begins to show how poorly he manages his money by spending his Wendy's paychecks immediately on regular visits to Golden Corral.


Chris Saga (Winter 2012 - Early 2013)[]

Chris moves into Josh's studio apartment and sleeps on his futon.  Since Chris is unemployed, he is in almost all of Josh's videos for several months - usually just in the background playing Grand Theft Auto.  Josh grows increasingly agitated by Chris constantly correcting him and interrupting his videos, but does not address it while Chris is present.

Chris gets a job working at Wal-Mart, but is fired after cutting his own hand with a box cutter.

While Josh is with his parents for Thanksgiving, Chris invites his brother and father to Josh's unattended apartment where they upload videos of Chris's father playing Josh's guitar to YouTube without Josh's permission.

Josh gets a ticket for driving without a license when Chris lends him his van to pick up a stick of butter. A police cruiser was nearly sideswiped in the path of Josh's erratic driving, and he is pulled over as a result. In the middle of a video,

Using money intended for rent, Josh puts $400 down on a sweet new $500 guitar at Mister Money Pawn Shop.

Josh's dad, Clint, becomes aware of the aforementioned spending and visits Mister Money Pawn Shop in an attempt to get a refund for his son's money. His attempt is unsuccessful, however, and Josh ends up getting a USB piano keyboard and another BC Rich Warlock (destroyed in "Smashing my guitar, 2016)


Beethoven Sub-saga (Winter 2012)[]

A sub-saga of the Chris Saga.  Josh suddenly believes that he could possibly be the reincarnation of the late 18th-century German composer Ludwig van Beethoven.  Upon hearing Fur Elise (pronounced "fur uh-less-ay"), he attempts to learn the opening melody on guitar, which is still a work in progress as of April 2017.


Chapter 2 (2013 - 2014)[]

KingCobraJFS Saga (Late 2012 - Early 2013)[]

In late 2012, Josh's Gothickingcobra52 account is banned due to nudity (he flashed his dick in a video or three), and Josh creates his current account - KingCobraJFS.

After hearing that Josh has allowed Chris to mooch off of him for several months, Josh's dad tells his son to kick Chris out, thus ending the Chris saga, as well as the appearance of Chris in future videos. With Chris gone, Josh begins to upload more videos of himself playing guitar (and occasionally piano).

Citing frustration from dealing with trolls, Josh takes his first (and so far only) significant break from YouTube, lasting a couple of months.


Random Video Saga (Late Spring - Fall 2013)[]

Josh returns from his short hiatus from YouTube and begins uploading videos at an alarming rate - averaging 2 to 3 a day. The vast majority of videos uploaded in this period are either titled "Morning video", "Noon video", "After work video", "Night video", or "Random video". Fans had difficulty keeping up with events during this time because Josh would typically upload at least 3 hours of content daily.


Stephanie Saga (Winter 2013 - Spring 2014)[]

Stephanie graduates from job corps gets a job at McDonald's and moves in with Josh. With his girlfriend now living with him, Josh begins to upload fewer videos.

The release of Gothic King Cobra (2014 trappped documentary) brings in new fans.

Just before Stephanie's move into the apartment, Josh and Chris are drunk at a gas station and somehow end up coming into contact with a pregnant woman, who suggests they tag-team her in exchange for a pack of cigarettes. Josh agrees to have sex with the woman, citing societal pressure to have multiple sexual partners, as well as his own overconfidence. Although this cheating incident prompted their eventual break-up, Stephanie allegedly forgives Josh for this particular act.

Josh begins to show signs of balding.


  • "The documentary is done"
  • Josh buys GTA5 (which he insists on calling "GTA5 Online"
  • Josh addresses his fans on the issue of uploading fewer videos
  • Josh dyes his hair green, but shortly changes his mind and goes back to black

Star-Spangled Banner Saga (Summer 2014 - Fall 2014)[]

Josh begins to learn the Star Spangled Banner with the intent of playing it for a 4th of July video. He is unable to learn it in time but uploads a video of what he was able to play. This piece of music becomes a staple in the King Cobra community, as it is one of the few tunes he ever plays on his guitar. He is still learning how to play the tune as of July 4, 2018.

After Josh denies her request to participate in a threesome, Stephanie cheats on Josh by having anal sex with a mutual friend. Upon learning about the events, Josh "half-jokingly" threatened to rape Stephanie, in an attempt to "be more kinky". That same day, Stephanie moved her things out of the apartment while Josh was at work.

Josh and Stephanie break up on July 4th, 2014.

Upon hearing about the breakup, Josh's dad visits Josh at Wendy's to console him. Josh gets mad about it.

Note: Most videos including Stephanie were either lost along with the gothickingcobra52 account or deleted by Josh on his current account.

Josh attempts to play the Star-Spangled Banner again on Ventrenn's Day(sic).


  • The day Josh finds out Stephanie cheated on him, but he is more concerned with an argument he had with a co-worker.
  • Josh plays the Star Spangled Banner for his 4th of July video and discusses the break up with Stephanie.
  • Josh uploads about a dozen videos documenting the progress of a beach cruiser he is restoring. Though the beach cruiser ultimately did not work, the project provided the fans with hours of great content - including a video of Josh riding the beach cruiser through the halls of his apartment.
  • "Playing the national anthem for Ventrenns Day"

Low Volume Saga (Winter 2014 - Early 2015)[]

Josh fucks up something on his camera, so all of his videos have incredibly low volume. This was a hard time to be a cobra fan, since there were many videos that were barely audible even with the volume maximized.

Josh gets a new girlfriend named Judy, who is the mother of several children. They break up very quickly.


  • King cobras chronic
  • "preformed an exorcism yesterday"
  • Josh talks about a second documentary that has still not happened
  • Josh breaks his glasses after falling over while drunk on his way home from The SandBar Lounge (a bar Josh frequents). Instead of buying a new pair, he fastens them together with a huge clump of tape like Harry Potter.
  • "GTA 5 rant" (first video with broken glasses)

Chapter 3 (2015 - Aug 2016)[]

Shotgun Saga (Spring 2015 - Fall 2015)[]

Josh buys a side-by-side shotgun and a sling that he fastens to the gun with guitar strings. Josh starts recording videos on his phone, providing us with much clearer footage. A golden era of content.

While standing outside of Josh's apartment, homeboy Scotty lets off a fart that then gets caught by the wind and is blown directly into Josh's mouth.

Josh gets a new girlfriend named Ami, and they break up in one day.


Bailey Saga (Winter 2015 - Early 2016)[]

Josh gets a new camera delivered to him by a fan, giving us the first 480p King Cobra videos ever. The Sandbar Lounge closes.

Sid "Homeboy Scotty" Hackman enters the King Cobra storyline. Scotty has promised Josh that he will hook him up with a black-haired, green-eyed goth babe named Bailey, who also plays guitar and listens to cradle of filth. However, any time plans are made for the two to meet, Bailey always cancels due to some last-minute emergency (dog run over, etc.) After multiple occasions, fans begin to question Scotty's truthfulness. In an attempt to escape responsibility for his lies, Scotty tells Josh that Bailey has changed her phone number to avoid telemarketers, so it is now impossible to reach her. After about 6 months, Josh gives up on meeting Bailey.

Note: Nearly all videos mentioning Bailey have since been deleted, so this storyline will be difficult for newcomers to follow.


Homeboy Scotty Saga (Winter/Spring 2016)[]

My Homeboy Scotty (MHBS) becomes a frequent topic of discussion in Josh's videos, and among his fans in the comments section. Scotty begins regularly appearing in videos. Fans discover that Scotty has been arrested for stabbing someone in Josh's apartment, then lying to the police about the events.

Josh reaches 2000 subscribers and begins to see a large increase in fans. He begins to receive calls from fans while at Wendy's, and other places that he visits.

Josh begins a new trend of attempting eating/drinking "challenges", which typically include eating a bunch of snack foods and washing them down with energy drinks.

Josh gets a new tattoo of a giant cobra with a pentagram on its head emerging from a cannabis leaf.


Willows of Sorrow Saga (Spring 2016)[]

Josh begins working on his 7th album, Willows of Sarrow (later corrected to Willows of Sorrow).

Josh becomes an avid supporter of Bernie Sanders, solely because he wants to legalize marijuana, which Josh believes to cure cancer.

After mixing up the sweet and unsweet teas at Wendy's multiple times, Josh has been cut down to a single 2 to 4-hour shift a week. Josh decides to go job hunting but doesn't have any success.

Josh begins uploading more outdoor videos after high demand from his fans.


Izzy Saga (Summer 2016)[]

Having not learned his lesson from the Bailey incident, Josh has been led to believe by Homeboy Scotty that he will be going on a date with a girl named Izzy - who is the roommate of Scotty's fuckbuddy/girlfriend. This reverses Josh's plan of "going asexual", and he becomes very excited about the date. Predictably, Scotty comes up with a last-minute excuse and the date does not happen.

Josh smashes his BC Rich Warlock guitar for seemingly no reason.

A fan makes and sells a limited run of King Cobra pins, and gives Josh a cut of the profit. Josh immediately spends his share on a $150 tobacco pipe.

Josh uploads his longest video yet, at just over three hours.

Josh reaches 3000 subscribers and his channel views peak in July 2016.

Note: Most videos detailing the date with Izzy have been deleted.


Sex Doll Saga (Late Summer 2016)[]

In the wake of the Izzy incident, Josh becomes frustrated with his inability to find a girlfriend - but does not attribute any of this to Scotty. Josh begins to contemplate getting a $2000+ sex doll and starts a GoFundMe in hopes of raising the required funds. The GoFundMe page is later deleted after fans question his real intentions.

Josh begins uploading cooking tutorial videos more frequently. Having received a number of various hot sauces as a gift, Josh (as he does with all foods) combines all of them in order to create what he calls "The Satan Six Hot Sauce".

Josh posts a video entitled "Rest in Peace Scotty Moore guitarist for Elvis". Fans assume that Homeboy Scotty has died, and Josh posts a video to show that Scotty is still alive and well.

Josh, Scotty, and another friend visit the carnival but don't have enough money to ride any of the rides.

Josh begins eating a ton of onions and rubbing them on his head, believing it will cause his hair to grow back.

On August 25th, 2016, Josh is fired from Wendy's after a YouTube troll by the name "Castellus Zemi" calls Wendy's corporate office with complaints about Josh's videos.


Chapter 4 (September 2016 - 2017)[]

Post-Wendy's Saga (Fall 2016)[]

Although he was fired from his job at Wendy's, Josh tells the fans that he is viewing the incident as an opportunity to better himself and start a new chapter in his life. He visits a hiring agency to aid him in finding a new job. Josh goes to turn in his uniform to his previous employer and is gifted a Wendy's hoodie and a free soft drink.

Josh becomes self-conscious about the cleanliness of his apartment and makes it a point to mention in every video how clean he keeps his place for a bachelor. He also goes out of his way to talk about how he's cleaned his dishes in his cooking videos, and how his fingernails would not be as dirty as they are if he were working in a restaurant.

Josh starts dipping for some reason.

The cobra fan base comes together to send Josh an assortment of gifts in hopes of encouraging him in a time of need. Upon receiving a pocket pussy, Josh becomes irritated and destroys the item on camera (after having already used it), claiming that he is asexual once again. Just hours afterward, Josh deletes the aforementioned video and claims to have seen the error of his ways. He attempts to repair the pocket pussy, and congers a thunderstorm in Casper in honor of the fan who sent him the package.

Josh starts another GoFundMe for his sex doll, but it is promptly flagged and deleted a few hours later.

The fans are promised a "Wendy's T-Rex Burger Challenge" after Josh reaches 4000 subscribers (has well over 4000 subscribers at the time of this entry, the challenge has still not happened).

On September 20th, The Cobra Lair (Josh's apartment) underwent an inspection by his landlord. Josh spends many weeks leading up to the inspection preparing and reassuring his viewers that he will pass with ease. He ultimately passes the inspection, but the landlord makes comments about his sink being "disgusting" and suggests easing off the tobacco use. Josh then does an unboxing with $80 worth of pipe tobacco to celebrate.

In response to an all-time high level of fan support, Josh begins interacting with the Cobra community to an extent never seen since beginning his YouTube career. This includes semi-regular voice chats on a discord server, and videos documenting the events.

The troll that complained to Wendy's about Josh's behavior becomes widely-known to the Cobra community as "The Fat Fuck From Kentucky" (hereafter referred to as "TFFFK"), as this is typically the moniker Josh uses when describing him in videos. Aside from his involvement with Josh's firing, TFFFK is an otherwise unpopular YouTube user who is struggling to attract viewers to his channel. Because of this, he begins uploading regular videos talking about the Wendy's firing incident, and the resulting (negative) attention he has received. TFFFK claims to be receiving death threats from a "cult" of Josh's followers.

Clint Saunders (Josh's dad) sets up Josh with a job counselor. Aside from saying it is going well, Josh has discussed very little about the events.

Clint Saunders tells Josh he needs to wash his clothing more. He also makes a comment on Josh's Facebook wall concerning the destruction of his two electric guitars. In response, Josh blocks his dad from viewing his Facebook.

Josh decides to vote for Donald Trump after hearing about a video where Hillary Clinton said she doesn't support the legalization of marijuana.


  • Josh responds to the troll who contacted his employer
  • Josh cooks a "veggie burger", containing burger meat, an egg, fried broccoli, fried lettuce, and a ton of hot sauce - all while coughing uncontrollably due to his intake of hot sauce fumes
  • "I'm giveng up on sex and companionship" - Josh tells the fans that he has decided to "go asexual" once again, and destroys a pocket pussy with a set of meat shears (but clarifies that he will not destroy it with his dick)
  • Josh cleans his bathroom and makes a burger
  • Josh finally receives the "Jesus is a cunt" shirt
  • The B.C. Rich Warlock guitar Josh got in junior high is smashed on camera for no reason

Entitlement Saga (Late Fall/Early Winter 2016)[]

Three months since being fired from Wendy's, Josh continues his unemployed lifestyle by smoking cigarette butts picked up around town and waiting for his job coach to find a position for him. Josh begins hanging out more frequently with his 70-year-old friend Steve (also known as Scrapper Steve), occasionally doing odd jobs around town at Steve's discretion.

The biographical crime-drama film King Cobra is released, and Josh is convinced that the movie is an attempt by his trolls to make him look gay. He tries to start the hashtag #FuckFranco, due to his belief that James Franco has become one of his biggest trolls. Josh later discovers the film is not related to him.

Josh makes a "new" Halloween costume that looks exactly like his costume from years prior.

A fan sends Josh two tickets to an Insane Clown Posse show in Casper. Josh attends with Homeboy Scotty, and enjoys the concert. A Juggalette attempts to dance with Josh, but he mistakenly believes that she is just trying to pass through the crowd, and politely moves out of her way.

Josh decides to vote for Gary Johnson on the day of the election, going back on his previous decision to vote for Donald Trump (because he wants to legalize weed).

Josh receives a $1000 sex doll from a fan. He claims that while it is not the exact sex doll he wanted, he is taking the gesture as a compliment. Less than 24 hours later, Josh goes to Facebook to claim that a thief broke into his apartment, and stole only his sex doll. To make his story even less believable, Josh later claims that the Casper police found his sex doll destroyed in the back of a meth-addict's car (who was allegedly trying to get scrap metal out of it). A few hours later, Josh comes clean and admits that he destroyed the sex doll because he got angry after ripping its vagina during use. However, he does not accept responsibility for his acts and instead blames the sex doll's poor quality and poor shipping.

Finally landing an interview at an undisclosed fast food restaurant, Josh "dresses up" for the occasion by wearing a collared shirt, cargo pants, and the usual bandana - but around his neck. His glasses break before the interview and he tapes them together with a giant piece of black electrical tape.

Josh's parents force him to go on vacation with them over the week of Thanksgiving, likely because they are concerned about his rapidly descending lifestyle and are using the opportunity to keep an eye on him. They purchase a new guitar for Josh during this time.

Just after returning from the Thanksgiving vacation, Homeboy Scotty reports that Josh's computer is no longer functioning. Josh had previously cracked the screen after "tapping" it due to anger over not being able to turn off his alarm - so it is likely that e further destroyed the computer. (Update: Josh admits on Facebook that he did indeed punch his computer.)

A video is uploaded with no audio, leading fans to believe Josh's computer is officially out of commission. Following several days of silence, Josh figures out how to upload videos from his phone, which he begins to do at an alarming rate. At the end of his sixth year on YouTube, Josh discovers that he can record from his phone in landscape mode, but he often begins his recordings in portrait mode, resulting in sideways videos.

Josh reveals that the title of his eighth album will be "Waiting", but specifies that this does not share any ties to the 2005 comedy film "Waiting...". Much like his previous albums, Josh confirms that a large portion of "Waiting" will be made up of songs that have appeared on prior albums.

The $150 pipe Josh purchased earlier in the year is broken.


Road Trip Saga (Christmas 2016 - Early 2017)[]

Presumably the result of a Christmas gift, Josh reveals that the computer he broke in a fit of anger has been replaced by a brand new iMac. He fails to properly adjust the microphone settings on his new machine, resulting in all of his videos having incredibly low volume, reminiscent of the "Low Volume Saga" from years prior. Additionally, he struggles to get Garage Band set up on his new machine.

Along with his family, Josh goes on a road trip to Arizona for the holidays. During this time, he posts multiple video updates per day, lasting just a few minutes each. While on the road trip, Josh uses a black sharpie as eyeliner.

Josh returns from the family trip and seems to be much more coherent and lively after 10+ days of living a normal lifestyle with his family. Since he can't successfully transfer data from his old iMac, Josh punches and kicks it, leaving him with a bloody knuckle and an entirely broken outer screen.

In January 2017, Josh reaches 5000 subscribers on his YouTube channel - but quickly falls back down to 49xx after fans protest the disabling of comments on his videos.

Although he does not entirely understand the situation, Josh becomes agitated by the existence of a "kingcobrajfs" subreddit and demands that it be shut down before he reinstates the ability to comment on his videos. He changes his mind and restores the ability to comment on his videos, but promises that he will get the kingcobrajfs subreddit page taken down eventually.

Josh uploads a video showing that after a month of struggling, he has successfully installed Garage Band on his new computer - effectively allowing the production on his eighth album Waiting to continue. In the same video, Josh reveals that he has recently been using a decent microphone sent to him by a fan, but has left it laying on the desk several feet away from him - explaining the impossibly low volume in the videos from this saga.


  • Josh steps away from his family for a moment to tell his viewers that he has decided yet again to give up on dating and companionship
  • Josh returns from the trip and is noticeably more coherent than normal
  • Josh starts yet another GoFundMe account to help raise money for a new Xbox for Kaden who is the son of his friend's sister. Supposedly (according to Josh), the Xbox was a Christmas gift for Kaden and had been stolen during the holidays.
  • Josh posts a video celebrating his 5000th subscriber on January 16, 2017

Sex Doll Saga (Early 2017)[]

Sent as a gift from a fan, Josh receives a miniature version of the sex doll that he has been wanting to purchase from since the Summer of 2016. Unlike the last sex doll sent to him, Josh approves of its quality, and, therefore, decides to keep it. This results in a couple of strange "skit" videos in which Josh acts as a ventriloquist, acting out a few scenes with his new sex doll (named "Felicia") and his dummy, Shon. 


Rebirth Saga (Feburary 2017 - March 2017)[]

In the week leading up to February 25th, Josh begins to have issues uploading videos to YouTube. He often complains about PhotoBooth freezing, which causes the audio and video to be out of sync. After a few more mishaps (including a lengthy video in which the audio was a one-second clip looped continuously), every video from Josh's channel suddenly vanishes. Josh then goes to Facebook to claim that he is done with YouTube, citing his difficulties with uploading. Days later, Josh successfully uploads a video to his YouTube channel explaining the situation and promises to treat this event as a "rebirth" of his channel.

Because of the sudden and bizarre nature of the aforementioned events, fans begin to speculate the true meaning behind Josh's removal of ~4 years of videos. This leads fans to notice that since "restarting" the channel, Josh has made no mention of his sex doll - as if none of it ever happened. This suggests that there may have been an intervention by Clint Saunders, or perhaps other outside influences.

Josh provides an update on his job search - confirming that over six months later, he has had a total of one job interview.


  • Josh's return (February 25th, 2017)
  • "Reflecting on some irony" - Josh walks around Casper at night, filming from his phone. Spends the entire video talking yet again about how ironic the number four is, and recalling encounters with girls from his high school days
  • "The reason I deleted my video" - Josh uploads a video to explain why his previous video was deleted, only for the first second of audio to loop endlessly

The Second Serpent Saga (Mid-March 2017)[]

Two Kings, Two Alexs, and Two days on the job(s).

On March 12, 2017, a YouTube user named KingKobraJFS uploads a video claiming that he is indeed the real King Cobra, and KingCobraJFS is a fake. Both accounts feature identical apartments, with its inhabitant wearing all black clothing, a bandanna, and long hair. In response to these developments, KingCobraJFS begins to respond to the presence of KingKobraJFS, assuring his fans that he is indeed the real King Cobra. Josh casts a spell that probes too powerful for KingKobraJFS and he is banished to an unlisted playlist held hostage by Cobra Cult holdouts.

Scrapper Steve comes out as a Zoophiliac Furry. When asked about Steve being a "zoo", Josh says that he's ok with it.

Screenshots of Josh's sex doll homicide from last year start gaining hits on Twitter and Reddit.

Josh uploads a new Shon and Saunders video and makes several references to Felicia. This disproves many rumors of a "Clintervention" involving Josh's sex doll.

Josh delivers content consistently, making the channel purge feel like a distant memory. Videos include reviews, drink combos, pipes/tobacco, and cooking. Josh continues to point out his widow's peak "growing" back and how women are intimidated by his good looks, muscles, guitar playing, and Youtube fame.

A new homeboy named Alex Campbell begins appearing off-screen in some of Josh's videos. Little is known about him other than his shrill voice and hyperbolic stories. An additional Alex makes appearances in Josh's videos around this time.

In mid-April, Josh announced that he scored a two-week job "trial". After finishing his first day, Josh states on Facebook that it went well. The next day, a fan asks Josh how his day at work was going. Josh replies, saying how the two-week trial was a two-day trial. Josh further elaborates on the matter in his "Dip review" video, explaining how after receiving feedback from his boss, Josh's job coach said he would probably not be hired. While he could follow through with the trial, Josh opts out.

On 4/22/2017, Josh punches a hole clean through his chair after mounting frustrations with unemployment, being single, his goatee, and iTunes. He reveals this via Facebook and provides further details in his video titled, "No more chair".

Josh continues work on his 8th album, now titled "Trails of the Abyss". On 4/26/2017, Josh announces on Facebook that "Trails of the Abyss" is his final album and that he's giving up on making music, singing, or guitar play. Fans flock to the comment section in support of his music career. Josh later deletes the post.

Alex's consistent appearances in Josh's videos start to alienate his fanbase. This builds on existing tension rooted in Josh's complacency with unemployment, and declining content quality.

Josh starts mentioning how his side-by-side is broken and starts implicitly e-begging on Facebook for it to be fixed. While Funsized Felicia made her first on-camera appearance in over a month on the Keeper Cast, Josh still lusts for more expensive sex-dolls.

On May 7th, 2017, Josh announces that he got a job as a dishwasher at The Office Bar and grill. Scotty's baby mama gives birth, making him Homedad Scotty. Josh is declared Godfather of the child.

Josh eventually gets a job which leads to less time on Youtube. In his absence, the subreddit begins to conjure up more stupid conspiracy theories that Josh had been fired. Despite the subreddit's disapproval over anyone being able to interact/monetize Josh, they turn around and advertise their own sub-par comic, Onion Head (which was not authorized by Josh). It's okay when we do it, but not anyone else!

It's business as usual for most of May and June. Josh goes to work and makes the same assortment of videos. In late June, Josh explains on Facebook how he used the wrong soap to wash Funsized Felicia, and her silicone skin melted off. It was later revealed in a text-exchange how Josh has a deep hatred for women and fantasizes about killing them and fucking their corpses. This manifested in him destroying poor Felicia.

Josh: 2

Sex Dolls: 0

Funsized Felicia's final resting place is in a dump somewhere.


Terms of Service Saga (Mid-Summer 2017 - Winter 2017)

The Summer of 2017 was relatively quiet compared to the previous year. Josh continues to work and make videos, but at a slow pace. The online fan-community stagnated with little lulz to go around. Josh's videos around this time comprised of your typical mix of tobacco product reviews, food, vocal covers, and long-winded rambling about current events and dead celebrities. As of July 4th, 2017, Josh cannot play the Star-Spangled Banner. Speaking of guitars, Josh was making do with only four strings.

The only noticeable "arc" vaguely linking Josh's content at the time was live streaming on Facebook and Youtube starting late-summer/early fall. Facebook would end up removing some of Josh's content and throw him in Facebook jail much to his dismay and frustration. Things took a turn for the worse when Josh was sent a video of a man saying "fuck king cobra". Josh went on a tirade about this man making comments about his weight, hairline, his mom, etc. Fans called this "the best video in months", but YooToob did not find this funny and removed the video. In addition, Toobs placed a strike against Josh's channel. Josh follows up by explaining that he no longer has the ability to live stream on YooToob with the strike in place and calls out YooToob for their hypocrisy.


Chapter 5 (November 2017 - December 2017)[]

A Queen Fit For a King (Late 2017 - 12/12/17)[]

(11/09/17) After a long few months of Josh streaming on Facebook, Josh posts on Facebook that he had sex multiple times with a new lady from Casper Wyoming. Josh's dad Clint wasn't too happy with Josh's need to overshare this information. Josh states that he will not reveal the identity of this mysterious girl, in worry that the trolls or Casper locals will split them up. Josh tried his hardest to hide the identity of his new queen, but ended up posting on her wall that he got home safe after a long night of consensual sex. Her name is Summer and she is a tattoo "artist" and alleged Furry.

During the early stages of Josh's new relationship he, Summer, and his close friend Scrapper Steve began discussing a business venture involving creating furry suits for people in Casper. Summer says that Steve did not want Josh involved with this business opportunity because he wanted to start a business with a furry girlfriend". Summer quickly pulled out from this business venture along with Josh.

(11/10/17) The very next day Josh uploads a cooking video titled 'Elvis Presley cheese burger' where Josh brings up that he heard from a friend of a friend that Stephanie was talking shit about Josh. This video was filmed by Josh a few days ago before the 10th. Josh talks about how he made Stephanie into a nympho and that her pussy was alright and nothing to write home about.

The Facebook Drama (11/11/17 - 11/12/17)[]

'Fans' of Josh began sending messages and linking the video to Stephanie's Facebook page. At this point, we hadn't heard a word from Stephanie for many years. Stephanie took to Facebook and tagged as many Casper locals, some friends of Josh to complain about Josh still being stuck in the past and should stop talking shit about her.

Later on in the day, Josh begins livestreaming on Facebook like he usually does, but brings up Stephanie and a couple named Damien and Megan. Damien and Megan are an older couple (late 30's) that brought Stephanie into their polyamorous relationship shortly after Stephanie broke up with Josh. Josh claims that Damien had been trying to break up Josh and Stephanie ever since the first got together. Josh began insulting Stephanie and Damien saying that Damien was old enough to be her father etc.

(11/11/17) Josh begins livestreaming again on Facebook and lets us know that a couple of Casper locals went over to Josh's new work to confront him about what he said about Stephanie, but Josh was off of work that day. Josh heard from secondary sources that one of these locals had brought a gun to the confrontation, but this was most likely a lie. Josh talks about his usual shtick about being able to kick anyone's ass because he has Scottish, Viking, and English heritage. Josh's best friend Homeboy Scotty was in Facebook chat making fun of Stephanie which made Josh fake laugh through the whole duration of the livestream.

(11/12/17) Josh livestream's yet again and talks a little bit more about the Facebook drama between him and Stephanie. Josh blocks Stephanie and the group involved with trying to go over to Josh's work to beat him up. He also begins deleting all of the livestream's of him insulting Stephanie, Damien, and Megan, but thankfully the videos were backed up. Josh states that he is done with the drama between him and Stephanie and is moving on, but minutes after saying this he goes back to talking and Stephanie. In this live stream, Josh autistically begins throwing chi balls at his Facebook friends watching the livestream. Josh finally reveals that he is now officially dating Summer, the girl he was having sex with a few days ago. Josh talks a little about Damien not liking that Josh was dating Stephanie when they first got together in Job Corps. Josh says that Damien wanted Stephanie to be his property and that he convinced Stephanie to dump Josh.

Steve tried to fuck Summer (11/15/17 - 11/15/17)[]

(11/15/17) Josh's best friend homeboy Scotty frantically begins livestreaming and telling fans of Josh's to start watching his livestream because he has some big news. The livestream begins with Scotty hyping up some big news about Josh. Josh was on the phone with his friend Steve and can be heard saying "I was there Scotty lied to you and I guess we don't need to be friends then". Josh lets it slip and announces to the livestream that Steve tried to fuck Josh's new girlfriend Summer.

Before the livestream, in a slimeball move, Scotty called Steve and lied to him about finding him a job that pays quite decently because Steve wasn't answering Scotty's calls. Scotty mentioned Summer and asked Steve's opinion of her. According to Scotty, Steve began telling Scotty that Summer told him that Josh was forcing sex on Summer, Josh was unclean and had to force Josh to take a shower before they had sex and that Summer did not want to date Josh and wanted to date Steve. Steve joins the livestream chat and tries to begin defending himself by saying that Scotty is lying but Josh was in the same room and heard the whole thing. Steve then begins blaming Summer saying it was her fault. Scotty blocks Steve and begins talking about how much a piece of shit friend Steve is. Summer then arrives at Scotty's house and tells Josh that Steve is lying and that she found Steve creepy. Summer then begins showing Josh, Scotty the texts Steve had sent her. Summer claims that Steve was trying to get into her pants when Josh was around.

Shortly after insulting Steve and going over the story multiple times, Josh forgives Steve and Scotty calls Steve later on that night to apologize for being that harsh on him.

A few days later Steve makes a video defending himself by calling Summer a liar and reiterating that she told Steve that Josh is unclean and that Josh was forcing sex on Summer. Steve shortly deleted the video.

The return of Stephanie (11/15/17 - 11/16/17)[]

In a wild turn of events, Stephanie uploads a video on Youtube titled 'My side if things', her first video.

Stephanie says that the main reason why they broke up 3-4 years ago was that he cheated on her. Stephanie cheated on Josh but she told him the next day but Josh waited months before he told her and so she felt disrespected. Stephanie says that she was going through a lot of changes and she was growing more confident with herself and what she really wanted. Josh threatened Stephanie and Damien as a joke but Stephanie took it seriously and broke up with Josh. She is doing much better in her life, she has a good job and she feels like Josh has stayed stagnant since she left him. Stephanie felt that she sort of shit on him with the Facebook drama but Josh has been talking shit about her for years on his Youtube channel. She says that she was just trying to call him out and that she didn't want him to get hurt. Stephanie feels that Josh still has a lot of growing up to do, he's not a bad person but he attacks himself because he has low self-esteem and other personal problems. And finally, she says that doesn't care that he is with Summer and wouldn't try and break them up.

Stephanie makes a second video the next day talking about being in a relationship with Damien and Megan. She doesn't want to be in a relationship with just one person because she believes it wouldn't work. Stephanie says that she is a pagan.

(11/16/17) On Youtube, a commenter asked Stephanie about Josh's penis, she revealed that Josh's penis is 2/3's the size of Damien's.

Livestreams and smelly Pikachu blankets (11/16/17 - 12/12/17)[]

(11/16/17) Summer posts on Facebook that she is at the hospital due to bronchitis and strep throat. Fans begin speculating on whether Steve was telling the truth about Josh's bad cleaning habits. Josh did not comment on this Facebook post because he was busy livestreaming a sample of his up and coming new album.

(11/18/17) Josh makes a video and a livestream for the passing of AC/DC member Malcolm Young. Josh brings up Steve and so Josh roasts Steve and says if it wasn't for him he wouldn't have any fans or Youtube subscribers. Josh was still friends with Steve on Facebook at the time but aren't speaking.

Shortly after this livestream, Josh hops back onto Facebook live but accompanied by his new girlfriend Summer. Summer brought a tattooing kit her Dad got her before he died over to Josh's apartment and Josh had the bright idea to get 'Ozzy' tattooed on his knuckles, just like his idol Ozzy Osbourne. Instead of getting 'Ozzy' tattooed on his knuckles, Josh got the tattoo done on his fingers. He said he did it this way because he wanted the tattoo to be visible when wearing his rings. Unfortutently for his fans, Josh began attempting to play the national anthem on his guitar, but after many failed attempts in front of Summer, Josh deleted the livestream VOD.

(12/12/17) Almost a month of being together, Josh announces on a Facebook livestream that he and Summer have broken up. Josh said that YouTube trolls hacked Summer's Facebook and deleted pictures of Summer's child. Summer couldn't take the harassment and the magnitude of Josh's internet fame and broke up with Josh over the phone but wanted to remain friends.

Josh quickly made light of the situation by joking with his Facebook livestream about being single again.

Summer entered Josh's livestream chat and told Josh that it wasn't a troll, it was her ex-boyfriend and that his 'fame' and had nothing to do with her breaking up with him.

Chapter 6 (December 2017 - February 2018)[]

Back to being single saga (12/12/17 - 02/02/18)[]

Need more info between him breaking up with Summer and then him finally doing Cobra Craft Wands.

Chapter 7 (February 2018 - July 2019)[]

Commercial Cobra saga/The birth of Cobra Craft Handmade Wands (12/12/17 - 02/02/18)[]

(12/12/17) After talking about his business idea of making wands for his fans for a few months, Josh finally makes a step towards business come to life. A talented Etsy artist/fan named Don 'FriendPrices' Picton designed Josh a great logo for Cobra Craft Handmade Wands for Josh to use. Josh liked the logo but decided to ruin it by filling parts of the logo in with black and green himself on Paint instead of consulting the artist. Many of Josh's fans called this move very disrespectful to the artist but Josh simply states that the logo that was sent to him was a template and that he could do whatever he wanted with it.

(02/26/17) Fans begin sending Josh silly things in the mail such as bald caps, an anal douche for men, penis-shaped breath mints, a "Grow a Girlfriend" novelty sponge, an exploding tube of pink glitter, and an odd vase-like metal object which puzzled and angered Josh. A few of his fans began ordering Josh pizzas but paid for them themselves. After a few free pizzas, trolls began ordering pizza for Josh without paying them.

During this time, Josh begins making tons of custom made shirts for his fans in a bid to earn enough money for materials to make his first batch of wands.

(05/03/17) After many months of making his first batch of ten wands, Josh finally puts them up for sale on his Etsy store. The wands sell out in roughly five minutes flat. Josh is ecstatic and in a livestream began reading out the full names of everyone who bought a wand.

Chapter 8 (July 2019 - October 2020)[]

Bald Saga (Summer 2019 - 2020)[]

During this era, most of Josh's videos consisted of hour-long ramblings on gender dynamics and ranting. Most of his videos were lazily titled "chillin'' or "pipe thoughts," making the actual content of the videos difficult to discern from the title.

In the summer of 2019, Josh attempts to trim his hair but fails miserably. This results in him deciding to shave his entire head so his hair can grow back thicker and fuller.

After eating a delicious meal from Taco Time and licking the wrapper, Josh is interrupted by a knock at the door. The local police swarm his house after someone impersonating Josh claiming he was going to shoot his wife and children. The news article covering the incident pointed out that Josh was single, childless, and lived alone.

(07/14/19) "pipe thoughts" - Josh "tried trimming his devil's lock" and trimmed too much, which made him give up and shave his entire head.

(08/23/19) "chillin'" - Josh is swatted live on camera.

(07/18/20) During a rare Facebook live session, Josh reveals he has received a letter from the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. He proudly reads the letter aloud, wherein he is praised for using his dark magic to defeat ISIS. Shortly after, Josh is informed that the letter is actually a fake and he responds by tearing it up. Immediately afterwards, the trolls convince him that the letter may have been real after all, but the damage had already been done.

(07/21/20) Josh goes live to let his viewers know that he has been officially banned from the CY Bar, one of his favorite Casper haunts. Although only "two pitchers and one mixed drink" deep, he claims that the bartender rudely and inexplicably cut him off. In response, Josh started to make a scene while sarcastically walking in a straight line to prove to the bar staff that he wasn't drunk. Upon seeing this, the bartender asked him to leave. Josh claims that while he mounted his gothic cruiser outside, the bartender called him an "asshole".

The announcement provokes several of Josh's online trolls to call the CY Bar to investigate, which only exacerbates matters further. After returning to the bar and getting kicked out once, he decides to call the manager in hopes of rectifying the situation. While on the phone, Josh immediately abandons his original claim that the manager called him an "asshole". The manager shoots Josh down, sides with his staff, and reaffirms his ban from the premises.

Josh has not been seen at the CY Bar since.

(08/01/20) In late summer of 2020, a person named "Chazz" begins to orbit around Josh's chats and social media. Soon after, Josh announces that "Chazz" works in Hollywood and wants to find him work as a voice actor. The next few weeks feature videos of Josh drinking to celebrate his burgeoning voice acting career, describing his Hollywood future in great detail, as well as effectively burning bridges with any "fan" that expresses doubt over the authenticity of "Chazz".

Less than a month later, the voice acting saga comes to a screeching halt once "Chazz" is found to be a failed comedian with an amateur porn star girlfriend. Rather than admit he was wrong, Josh instead claims he "walked away" from his business arrangement with "Chazz".

As of October 2021, Josh has not mentioned the voice acting saga since.

(09/01/20) Josh announces that he will be receiving eye surgery to fix his cataracts and lazy eye. It is also revealed that Clint will be driving him roughly three hours away to Denver, CO for the surgery. Josh expresses trepidation over the upcoming procedure.

Josh uploads a video the morning after his surgery, filmed outside of his Denver hotel. In the video, he is seen sporting a large bandage over one eye and large black UV protective sunglasses. Upon returning home from Colorado, he continues with life as normal while largely ignoring follow-up care recommended by his doctors. On occasion, Josh will wear the large black UV protective glasses purely for their goth aesthetic but rarely wears them for the prescribed amount of time. He is often seen squinting in order to read text on his computer screen.

Due to his refusal to follow aftercare instructions, Josh's eye begins to turn blood red and cause him problems; over time, his lazy eye begins to return to its original wonky setting.

Chapter 9 (October 2020 - Present)[]

Eviction Saga (10/27/2020 - Present)[]

(10/27/20) Josh received the news of his eviction live on stream from his father, Clint. He reportedly caused $6,000 worth of damage and rendered the apartment above his unrentable due to him smoking inside and spray painting sticks wands indoors. Although initially shaken by the news, Josh's apologetic behavior quickly dissipates as he deflects blame by referencing TV interviews given by management regarding their pandemic eviction moratorium. Unfortunately, Josh failed to realize that the moratorium covered evictions for nonpayment, not evictions for damaged property, health risk to tenants, or miscellaneous boglimry. In the end, he still contends that he was only "partially" responsible for the eviction.

Immediately following the eviction announcement, it was business as usual for Josh. Halloween and Green Phantom Seasson came and went, while Josh's drinking plowed ahead virtually unimpeded. In his frequent "chillin" live streams, Josh would share limited details about his apartment search and over two weeks would lapse before cardboard boxes, packing materials, or any other sign of Josh's impending move would begin to appear.

(11/9/2020) Josh announces via live stream that he has secured a one bedroom apartment for $600.00 a month. Josh remains decidedly tight-lipped about his new home, revealing little about his living situation over the next several weeks. In an effort to repair damages and save money, Clint decides he will help Josh clean his old apartment. Cleaning begins in mid-November and is not formally completed until December 23rd, 2020. Josh hates showing up to help clean his old apartment, and the process is highlighted by videos of Josh assembling massive fast food meals in the bathroom while Clint paints in the background.

Although not explicitly stated, it is believed that Clint paid an additional month of rent for Josh's old apartment in order to stay behind and clean it.

The final video recorded from the original Cobra Lair living room is uploaded on November 19th, 2020. The first video uploaded from the new apartment was uploaded on November 24th, 2020.
