A local London man from Muswell Hill has legally changed his name to Mr. Bacon Double Cheeseburger.
It’s unclear to Beeffanatic if the name is in fact Bacon D. Cheeseburger, Bacon Double-Cheeseburger III, or BD Cheeseburger Jr.
Simon Smith legally changed his name via UK deed poll – a legal document that, “proves a change of name. You can change any part, add or remove names and hyphens, or change spelling” (according to this gov.uk webpage). Apparently anyone can get one for £33 – what am I waiting for?!
The 33 year-old, formerly know as Simon Smith ,was one of a record 85,000 Brits who changed their names by deed poll last year. “A name is the least important part of your personality – it’s given to you be someone else,” stated Mr. Cheeseburger. “Bacon Double Cheeseburger was the first name I came up with.”
…I think that says all we need to know about Mr. Cheeseburger’s personality.
In another progressive move for the citizens of Great Britain, Mr. Cheeseburger’s fiancée, Isabella, has stated that she will keep her maiden name upon marriage – refusing to become Mrs. Double Cheeseburger anytime soon. No word on their future kids being relentlessly tortured in school.
Louise Bowers, of the UK Deed Poll Service added that, “some people simply don’t like their original names – we’ve changed Cock to Cox and Smellie to Smiley.” That’s a real missed opportunity for the latter’s child if they were to marry one of of the Cheeseburger offspring. Thereby taking the married name ‘Mrs. Bacon Smelli-Cheeseburger’.
I’ve got to say that I’m a bit disappointed that this name change wasn’t for the love of burgers. London burgers have a lot to offer, and surely Bacon Double Cheeseburger being simply the “first name you came up with” is not a great tribute to those beefy creations.
Maybe he would have been better off with some other random name changes from the UK last year like: ‘Happy Birthday’, ‘John The Teddyboy Leeson’, or ‘Charlene Charlie Penelope Pitstop Colpus Crumb.’
