Man has his name changed to 'Cheeseburger'

Simon Smith from London got so bored with his name that he had it changed to 'Bacon Double Cheeseburger'.
The 33-year-old, who had decided that his birth name simply wasn't important because he hadn't picked it himself, made his exotic new moniker official through the UK Deed Poll Service.

"A name is the least important part of your personality," he said. "Itís given to you by someone else. Bacon Double Cheeseburger was the first name I came up with."

Other examples of bizarre name changes from the last few years include a man who changed his name to 'Happy Birthday' and a couple who had themselves renamed Mr and Mrs Amazing.

"It gave us a chuckle but if that is what they want to do, itís their choice," said a spokeswoman.

Now he can wear a t shirt that says "eat me" and it won't be an insult to anyone! Vegans would be insulted. Never underestimate the will of the easily offended!

Hopefully he doesn't start hanging out with this guy and start getting into trouble.

I'm sure hanging out with the Hamburgler would make him Grimmace.

Why is this considered news??? You could ask that about 95% of news stories these days.. At least he didn't change it to "Kardashian"...

Now his pick-up line is probably, "Yes, you can haz cheeseburger." He can then ask if the young lady would like fries or onion rings.

Now all he has to do is change his address to "Paradise."
