Wow, so a few of my best melee smasher friends and I from Crystal City came up with “No Johns”. “Caveman”, “Rob$”, “Zulu”, and me “Smiles”. Our friend John Paul always made excuses about anything. Showing up late, not answering his phone, and just about everything when it came to smash bros. Controller, matchups, stage picks. It first worked out like “Hey dont pull a John” (everyones had that friend) to “no johns”. It was also a way to keep us in check and motivate each other while practicing. Melee is 13 years old + but this and much more lingo is way older for Texas Crystal City crew. Its really an honor Reggie.
Everyone needs to know the origin of no johns
