Bonno passed away peacefully in his sleep at about 8:00 p.m. on the 8th of August, 2011.

onno is the Hamster For President campaign talent scout and video producer. He is the brother and littermate of webmaster Gabe, both being born to Zero and Langolier on the 28th of November 2008.

He is also proprietor of YodaVision Entertainment, the world's first and only film production company owned and operated by hamsters. The business was founded by Bonno's great-great-great-grandfather, Yoda, and has been passed on through the generations. YodaVision produced the acclaimed 2004 HFP campaign video featuring Diddley Squat and Bupkes.

Bonno is married to the beautiful Pestis, a business-ham in her own right. They are the proud parents of nine children, all born March 1st of 2010. They include sons Fuzzy Sozo and Limood, who live in the household with their parents; April, a daughter residing in Cincinnati, Ohio; and a son, Fuzzball and two daughters, Strangelet and Bubble, who are housed at the National Capital Area headquarters.

Bonno also oversees photography for the website and other campaign activities and helps his wife in her real estate business. He believes that activity preserves a hamster's health. He walks on his wheel every night, a sensible senior alternative to running.

Bonno has many hobbies, too. He loves playing "brain exercise" games on the computer and is an avid news junkie and television viewer. He rarely misses either Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and will gladly take in a movie or two if allowed to remain in the room overnight with the TV. He detests sitcoms and what he calls "dirty" music videos, something his firm would never produce.

Bonno's favorite foods are grapes, watermelon, bean sprouts, boiled cabbage, beets, cornbread muffins, lettuce and turkey. His favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.

And the person he admires most in this world is his faithful wife, Pestis.
