Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells

In British English we have the name "Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells" as a generic name like Joe Bloggs or John Doe for signing off the kind of outraged letters to the editor written by crotchety old reactionaries railing against the yoof of today/women and foreigners not knowing their place/incorrect apostrophes/whatever. (Tunbridge Wells is a quiet, pretty spa town in Kent, known for being dull and respectable). Are there similar generic sign-off names for that type of letter in other languages?
