Usage

Johnson's Theorem is from a distant corner of theoretical mathematics and has little or no application in the real world except when used as a gauge for one's appetite at Hotel Fanoos, Johnson Market, Bangalore.

One possible usage of the future:
"How many male models should we use in this section of the Speedo show?"
"Hang on, let me apply Johnson's Theorem. A Mumbo comes to mind... so that's three. Three male models. Make those "rumalis" nice and thin, okay?"

The first 3 words of the Indian National Anthem. Rather than refer to it as "the national anthem" and acknowledging the fact that the ditty doesn't really have a well known name, if any, most people just call it "Jana Gana Mana".

Usage
