J. Random

J. Random: /J rand'm/ n. [generalized from J. Random Hacker]
   Arbitrary; ordinary; any one; any old.  `J. Random' is often
   prefixed to a noun to make a name out of it.  It means roughly
   `some particular' or `any specific one'.  "Would you let
   J. Random Loser marry your daughter?"  The most common uses are
   `J. Random Hacker', `J. Random Loser', and `J. Random Nerd'
   ("Should J. Random Loser be allowed to gun down other
   people?"), but it can be used simply as an elaborate version of
   random in any sense.
