@SnJedI you answered your own question. This is just a concept to solve a common problem in different languages!

Using Lo-dash (http://lodash.com/docs) you'd have something like:

// JavaScript

Person = function(name, address) {
  this.name = name;
  this.address = address;
};

Person.prototype.inspect = function() {
  return this.name + ' lives at ' + this.address;
};

tj = new Person('TJ', '314 Bessborough ave');
bob = new Person('Bob', 'Some place');

$.each([tj, bob], function(k,obj){
  console.log(obj.inspect());
});

_([tj, bob]).forEach(function(person) {

  console.log(person.inspect()); 

});
