Jimmy Johnson + Janis Joplin

Am I the only person who didn't know that Jimmy Johnson of football fame and Janis Joplin of rock 'n roll fame when to high school together in Port Arthur, Texas?

Apparently, Johnson used to call Joplin "beat weeds." His nickname, meanwhile, was Jimmy Jump-up ... turns out there are only eight letters in the Port Arthur alphabet, and every name must begin with J. It's kinda like Iceland that way.

Don't know what "beat weeds" means ... but it seems, like most "rockers," that she was quite the hippy outcast. He was probably a douche bag Texas HS football star.

Still, the hippies deserve all the misery they get.

Get a job, you friggin' bum.
