Johnny is one of a select
group of people
who think they contain a vast
well of knowledge on all subjects. Like Cliff Clavin the character on the old TV show Cheers, he pretends to know intimate details about everything—from the best region for the manufacture of shoe polish to the calibration of gene splicing equipment. Johnny works
as an hourly employee in a large corporation
and has no specific
higher education or degree.
Greg: "I have a stomach ache."
One up Johnny: "That pain in your abdomen could be from
a variety of internal organs. These
the stomach, small
intestine, colon, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. It could be a serious
condition. You should consider
being evaluated by a physician"
Greg: "Yeah, or it could be from
that donut I ate earlier."
Mike: "Have I ever told you I have a motorcycle?"
