Man Changes His Name To “Captain Awesome” and Uses Smiley Face With Arrows As Signature

Posted by | Random, WTF?! | No Comments

via Comcast. An Oregan man recently changed his name from Douglas Allen Smith Jr. to “Captain Awesome” last month after being inspired by a character from the NBC television show, Chuck.

The former Mr. Smith says he faced a Lane County judge who questioned his seriousness. The judge that granted the request made him swear he wasn’t changing his name for fraudulent reasons.

Awesome says that judge also allowed him to sign his name as a right arrow, a smiley face and a left arrow.

He says his bank, however, has refused to accept the signature because it could be forged too easily.

The Top Story in the AJC this Morning!?!@

Posted by | News, WTF?! | No Comments

My friend Prasanth just e-mailed me the top headline in the AJC this morning. It reads “Buckhead CVS Robbed For Syrup Used in Purple Drank.” Apparently two men robbed the Buckhead CVS and “only took bottles of a codeine-like syrup used to make a drink popularized in rap and hip-hop lyrics.” The robbers took approximately 7 to 10 (12oz) bottles of syrup.

Other names for purple drank include sizzurp, lean, syrup, drank, barre, purple jelly and Texas tea. The drink is made by combining the syrup with soft drinks such as Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy.
