Awkward introductions: ‘Call me God’

Steve Kreuscher has let his status as a denizen of Zion (Illinois, that is) go to his head. He’s asked a judge to legally change his name to the motto that backs our money: In God We Trust.

Believe it. First name, In God. Last name, We Trust. The Daily Herald has a detailed story that is striking for its lack of lame jokes and offers other interesting name changes:

Santa Claus: Robert Rion of Mundelein, 1997

GoVeg.com: Karin Robertson of Virginia, 2003

Megatron: Michael Burrows of Washington, 2007

Optimus Prime: Scott Nall of Ohio, 2001

Pro-Life: Marvin Richardson of Idaho, 2008

Low Tax: Byron Looper of Tennessee, 1998

Jesus Christ: Jose Espinal of New York, 2005

My favorite funny name, though it may be apocryphal, is “Sh—head” (pronounced: Shah-TEED).
