Johnston is a mark of the running group from Scotland. Osiris Cullen was a great business man, he was always fair, but he always wanted more. He began to barter for more in every deal he made, but one day, he crossed the wrong clan, and they vowed to destroy him and his clan. He feared for his life, and quickly deported to the U.S. in 1746, there he changed his surname to Johnston, and he began anew. Johnston's are planning to get revenge on the threatening family, and if you are one, you know who they are too.
That business man is a Johnston, I can tell by the way deals in his favor...

Originally a Gaelic disparagement of the Johnstone (MacIain Clan) family. It's now used (primarily in Eastern Rural Canada) when factual statements are debated against by means of lies, inaccuracies and total nonsense.
I told Dave that his favorite team was going to lose tonight. He argued that because the barometric pressure was higher than normal for a Spring time game it would be to his teams advantage. He was clearly Johnstoned.
