Personal experiences with the name Joe: | Edit

I have never met a 'bad' JOE.
They are all awesome!!

An extremely common name.

My boyfriend of a few years name is Joe. He'a average height, has black hair, and really tan skin. He plays sports and skateboards. He's pretty feisty, can't get pissed off easily. He's kinda a bad boy, if you know what I mean. He hates when other guys look at me, and tells me hie's going to kick any guy's asses if they touch me, it's really hot lol.

A guy in my school is named joe, he is the lame and anti-social kid that plays pokemon with the wall. He is weird and pants in class, he doesnt have good grades and i heard his IQ was 2. No one bullies him but he always tries to pick a fight, he has a bad temper and only picks on the people smaller than him. He has no friends.

Joe Suzekie, in the internet comic blog The Greasers of Hazzick Flats, father of Clarabelle Suzekie, the girlfriend of Hard-Tack Haggerty, the leader of the Mugg Street Cats gang. A career criminal who spends his life in and out of prison, Joe is a handsome, dashing dude with dark skin and jet black hair. Spiggie Lomer sees him as flashy and exciting because of his looks. Using a stolen drivers' license belonging to one of his girl friends, he takes 14-year-old Spiggie to a notorious strip club that is frequented by the scum of the earth, where she eats a 52-ounce porterhouse steak, gets stinking drunk, and barfs all over Joe's expensive, flashy new shoes made of genuine leather. Spiggie's father shows up and drags her out of the strip club; when he gets her home he gives her her first and only good hard spanking. Later Joe tells a girl about that night, when he took a silly teenage girl to a strip club where she ate a 52-ounce porterhouse steak, drank herself silly, and puked all over his new shoes, stating "that was the worst date I ever had!" . . . Also Joe Jones, one of Spiggie's grade school crushes, whose name is on her "The Men In My Life" list. http://www.thegreasersofhazzickflats.blogspot.com
