In what one blogger (me) is reporting as an obvious attempt to get me to have sex with him, Tyler Gold of York, Nebraska has legally changed his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex. Me? I earned my T-Rex nickname. "Because you're so bloodthirsty and vicious?" What? Hell no, because I have one little arm :/
"In Gold's official filing with the court, he said he wanted to change his name 'because the (T-Rex designation) is cooler. Also, as an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognizable.' He verbally repeated his reasoning during the court proceedings, while on the witness stand [Monday]."
LOL @ "as an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognizable." Oh, it's a recognizable name alright -- one that nobody in their right f***ing mind would would ever want to do business with.
Businessman 1: You ever done business with that idiot calling himself T-Rex before?
Businessman 2: Unfortunately. He bit one of our lawyer's heads off during a contract signing and dragged the carcass around the room. Then kept roaring when we wouldn't validate his parking.
Thanks to Stephanie, Bobble, Alablaster, Jason T, neolardo, Mike and Andrew M, who agree we should all change our names to different dinosaurs and start a company. Now THAT -- that's a million dollar idea.
