生于 1737 年

约翰·汉考克 was a Whig leader in Boston prior to the Revolutionary War, and went on to be the President of the Second Continental Congress - which was responsible for creating the Declaration of Independence. All very impressive. But most impressive of all was that his name would live on to be slang for 'signature'. Now that's a legacy. One day I imagine "Shaun" will be used by children to describe a world-weary sneer. I can but dream.

Hancock was born in Massachusetts, the son of a Reverend, but his father died when he was young, and John was sent to live with his Uncle in Beacon Hill. Thomas Hancock ran a prosperous shipping business, which John inherited when his uncle died in 1764.

汉考克是位出色的商人,而他部分的收入也许来自于走私,他在 1768 年时尝试了这项工作,但他从未被定罪。当印花税法于 1764 年被强加于殖民地上后,他加入了爱国者方。他是倾茶事件的教唆者之一,实际上当革命战争开打后,他作为反抗军的名声之大,当波士顿总督愿意赦免任何放下武装之人时,汉考克并不在他的赦免考虑中。

汉考克也许以他在独立宣言上签名而广为人知,也许因为他是第一个落款签名之人,不然就是他喜欢奢侈高调,他的签名既华丽又比其他人的要来的大。所以现在在美国,你的签名有时候被称为「你的约翰·汉考克」。

我应该不需要解释为什么有些人认为这念起来比较下流吧?

算了我还是说一下好了,因为那听起来就跟阴茎一样。
