UK Man Renames Himself "Stormhammer Deathclaw Firebrand"

samzenpus posted more than 4 years ago | from the what's-in-a-name? dept.

United Kingdom 13

Why would you want to be plain old Richard Smith when you could be Stormhammer Deathclaw Firebrand? From the article: "Smith, whose friends have traditionally known him by the nickname Spiff, decided that even that nickname wasn't enough to keep him happy. So the 41-year-old care worker from Carlisle has changed his name by deed poll to Stormhammer Deathclaw Firebrand." It's no Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate, but it's alright.

Idle can only destroy those who read it. This clearly includes you.

This is why it gives the warning occasionally on the starting page

'Idle.slashdot.org is a total waste of your time. Never go there.'

And this is why I go to a football game, and complain that they are playing football.
