Whats with people hiding their identity using the name Jane or John Doe?

    Those usually aren't actual names. It's a reference to when police don't have any clue who someone is, they refer to them as being a jane doe or john doe.

    They're probably just making a joke in cartoons.

    If it's a joke it's not a very funny one considering when police use the name Jane or John Doe, the person in question is dead.
