Stuff We Should Bring Back #1

Here's something we oughta revive: The practice of calling someone "Jack" when assuming a macho stance against him in some kind of conflict.

This was especially cool in professional wrestling, as in:

"If you want a shot at this title, just step up on, Jack, because I'm ready 24/7 to defend it."

What can I say? I just like it. Nobody seems to be using this anymore. Maybe it's because we don't have real men heroes anymore, or even posers trying to pass themselves off as such, but I'll bet even Orlando Bloom could seem a wee bit tougher if he tried addressing someone as "Jack" if things got tense.
