This Guy Who Legally Changed His Name to 'Bacon Double Cheeseburger' Is Kinda Cute


Sorry, folks, he’s engaged and to a woman who has hesitations about being Mrs. Cheeseburger. She doesn’t deserve him!

Bacon Double Cheeseburger was born Sam Smith in Muswell Hill, UK. According to the Evening Standard, he drunkenly submitted an application to UK Deed Poll Service for a legal name change at his friends’ urging. Unbelievable that drinking was involved in this decision, but even more unbelievable is that he actually signed the papers when they arrived a few weeks later.

How has this changed Bacon Double’s life? Not a lot, unless the emotional responses of his loved ones count. He says:

What people call me is up to them but that’s my name legally speaking now. My mum was furious but my dad thinks it’s hilarious. He’s more than happy to use my new name.
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.

Yes, very funny. You’re truly the Burger King of pranks, sir.

So… would you?
