That's CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow, who, incidentally, isn't being accepted by his surname

It's a little pedantic but Uncle Sam is really the American version of John Bull. Bull predates Sam by 100 years.

Had no idea what this was, but looking at the photo I assumed it had something to do with the Union Jack. I was typing Uncle Jack, Father Jack, Grandpa Jack, Cousin Jack, Wife's father's sister's husband's third cousin twice removed's nephew Jack. Didn't even come close. Thank you for the education.

You may be overestimating how many people have read or even care in the slightest about Atlas Shrugged.

Thankfully, very few. And I'm not talking out of my ass, I read the damned thing.

Unfortunately, although barely anyone cares or knows about it, a few people with a lot of power do, and have it as their earthly Bible.

Garfield is the worst. OK, Family Circus is the worst. But Garfield is a close second in terms of wasted ink.

I learned the "John Jacob, etc." at summer camps as a kid, but I always thought the guy's last name---and we sang it accordingly---was Smith, so I request acceptance of that name a legitimate answer.

I mistakenly sang the chorus of "Every Breath You Take" as "I'm a pool hall ace" instead of "my poor heart aches" for two years during the 80's until someone pointed out I was wrong. I don't think Sting would accept it on a quiz, though.

You’re right @Overtired. Brit here and my reaction when I saw the answer was “WTF, never heard if him.” I asked the wife and she just looked at me like I had two heads. That means she hadn’t heard of him either, though she does use that look a lot with me. Lol

I’ve also never heard of Johnny Appleseed, John Schmidt, John Henry, John Galt or Johnny Storm.

I'm British and I hadn't heard of John Bull until he was referenced in a French novel from the 1870s

As a kid I visited John Bull's World of Rock in Bridlington, Yorkshire and was under the impression that he must have invented sweets or something.

I'm not sure if I'm proud or not that I knew the last name of Garfield's owner.

Also, I'm distantly related to the real life Johnny Appleseed. My great-grandmother was a Chapman from Longmeadow, Massachusetts and our line and Johnny's line intertwined there at some point.

John Henry was a REAL person.

Some parts of the story may have been exaggerated but he most definitely was not a fictional character.
