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.
