John Jacob Jinglehiemer Schmidtt

That's NOT my name and neither is it the name of a kid from the U.K. who recently changed his name to (and I'm not making this up):

Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined.

That's quite name.
(I hate to inform him, but Spider-man is hyphenated. Just saying.)

And why exactly did he do it?
Because he "wanted to be unique".

I have a lot of personal experience with geek culture and I can safely agree that he will definitely be unique. And probably dateless and / or jobless with a name like that.

I mean, if you were of the female side of the population how would you respond to;
"Hi! I'm Captain Fantastic. Would you like to have dinner with me?"
Or if you're going to get something to eat and you heard this;
"Welcome to Burger Buster. I'm Captain Fantastic. May I take your order?"
Would you trust your stock portfolio to somebody named Capt. Fantastic? Would you let your daughter go out on a date with a boy named that? What if they got married?!?

I'd laugh myself silly upon hearing "I'm Captain Fantastic".
"Yeah, and I'm Baron Von Footupyourass."

I guess the only cool thing about it is that he decided on doing it himself. His parents didn't force him into having a name like that. So if he's happy, well.... whatever. Live and let live I suppose.
I just hope I don't meet him. Not that would beat him up. I just don't think I could actually look at the guy and have a conversation after hearing him say his name.

I'd be too busy laughing.

In totally unrelated news:
Ew! Ick!
