What a name!

In Australia when you are a citizen, you can apply for a change of name.

My youngest brother-in-law Will wasn't Will. So when I am a citizen, I may change my name and go incognito :) Just joking, I think it's only allowed if the applicants have valid reasons, or maybe not.

I take in scripts at the dispensary. This happened in Frankston a couple of years ago. And in came this elderly gentleman with his scripts, with a concession card. I took a look at his name, I tried my best not to give him a second look, tried not to act shock, tried not to laugh.

When the script was ready, I told the pharmacist I really did not know how to call him out. Do I call him this way, or by that, either way, whichever way, I would have laughed. Finally my dear pharmacist gave the medicine out.

His name? I SWEAR this is TRUE! How on earth the goverment or whatever department approved of that, you will wonder.

His name .....

.......


.......


PRIME MINISTER PISS THE FAMILY .... something. This I forgot.


Now you tell me? How to call him? Prime Minister? Mr. Piss The Family...? So our pharmacist called him PM. Good on him. I was too excited to think :P

Geee... he must have been pretty pissed off with our Mr. Howard. Eh, I swear leh, this is not a joke. Really got a name like this!

Huaaaahhh... like dat oso can,ar?

In Malaysia, i suppose you need to get a deed poll. If not, you probably have to give a valid reason, like Penelop wasnt spell Penelope etc. One Chinese fella applied to be name "St John" and i think a lot of ppl are snickering behind his back. We mean lot,us.
