So Let Me Get This Straight. Your Name is What?
Simon Smith, of Muswell Hill, England, has changed his name to Bacon Double Cheeseburger.
The 33 year-old tells the Sunday People newspaper: “A name is the least important part of your personality. It’s given to you by someone else. Bacon Double Cheeseburger was the first name I came up with.”
Bacon tells the Evening Standard: “It was the culmination of probably too many drinks in the pub where there was a conversation about names. Bacon Double Cheeseburger was pretty much the first thing that came up. Everyone loves bacon don’t they? It was largely the most ridiculous thing we could think of. My friends were quite supportive of anything that makes me look silly, as good friends are. My fiancée is fairly reluctant about marrying a Cheeseburger. That’s something we’re discussing a lot. No girl ever dreams of spending her big day marrying a man called Bacon. But I’ve got no regrets at all. It’s been a very fun experience and it’s made a lot of people laugh.”
