    James, nice image. Needless to say, I had a good laugh when I read your title for the image! I spent the first 23 years of my life on a farm in North Dakota and we had a lot of good neighbors named Johnson. I suspect they would have had a good laugh also after making sure you weren’t making fun of them!

    Cheers, Mike
