The origins of bad juniper begin with an awkward teenager giving a presentation on hemispheres to his Okemos High School science class circa 1995, during which he made an obscure reference to a badronaldshpere.  This comment led to hours of laughter and ultimately to my viewing of the 1974 made for T.V. movie, Bad Ronald.  Years later on the streets of Chicago somewhere west of California on Diversey Ave in the dead of winter I would find a dirty little kitten in a pile of trash who would come to be known as Juniper.  Juniper grew to be a nasty little cat who peed on everything.  Long story short the name bad juniper is a nod to awkward teenagers, made for T.V. movies, and rotten cats everywhere.
