Can you believe some people? A man changes name to bacon double cheeseburger after a night of drinking. I know I have done some really daft things when I was younger, but to change my name to an item of yucky food was never one of them. The 33 year old who was originally known as Sam Smith, legally changed his name to the fast food favourite and even signs his name as ‘B.D.Cheeseburger.’
After a night of drinking at the pub, Mr Cheeseburger’s friends persuaded him to get involved in a stunt to change his name to his favourite Burger King treat. Apparently, it was the first thing that popped into his mind. He is quoted in one London newspaper as saying, ‘It was the most ridiculous thing we could think of. My friends were quite supportive of anything that makes me look silly, as good friends are.’ If that’s your friends, Mr Cheeseburger, I’d think about getting some new ones.
He went through with the prank, changing his name by official deed poll in the UK. So now he is officially Mr Bacon Double Cheeseburger. His fiancée isn’t too happy with the name change and who can blame her. He admits he may have to change it back before he gts married. I wonder if he’ll be coaxed into changing it to something else in the future? Perhaps Mr Large Bucket of Chicken as in the KFC favourite or maybe Big Mac? Personally, I’d have kept it to Sam Smith.
