You know, I have known for a while that I have a rather unusual name. Aside from my meat-related surname, the name Jono is not particularly well established. This odd combination has mean’t that from what I can tell, I am the only Jono Bacon on the Internet, so one could assume that there not any other Jono Bacons in the world. Hmmm.
With such a rare name, you need to keep it real with other Jonos. As such, I sent an email over to Jono Coleman who is a famous Aussie DJ over here. As a man who shares in the wondrous Clan Jono, I figured we should unite and affirm our union:
You know, the world has far too few Jonos in it, and I figured we need to club together otherwise some lunitic Stuarts or Davids may get a little above their platform. As such I figured I should email you to bolster this soladarity between Clan Jono.
Good to see a fellow Jono doing well. I am part of an Open Source podcast called LUGRadio (www.lugradio.org) that is doing rather well. We currently have around 15,000 listeners.
The Day Of The Jono is coming…
Unfortunately, he didn’t seem to share in our obvious relation:
IM ACTUALLY JONATHAN (JONO) COLEMAN …BUT THATS CLOSE ENOUGH STAY COOL JONO COLEMAN BBC LONDON 94.9FM AND GMTV ON ITV
So, the man seems to only use Jono as some kind of frivolous nickname. Preposterous! Sure, my name is officially Jonathan Edward James Bacon, but it has been Jono since the age of 9. I am sure he will see the light sometime soon.
If you know any other Jonos, do let me know.
