The Legal System at Work: Man Loses Drunken Poker Bet Legally Changes Name

nameThe Country of New Zealand has a few things going for it. It’s Middle Earth, there are no snakes, and the government has the power to reject stupid or offensive baby names. Every now and then something can slip past the filters and end up on a legal document. This is one of those cases.

A New Zealand man has changed his name to “Full Metal Havok More Sexy N Intelligent Than Spock And All The Superheroes Combined With Frostnova” after losing a drunken bet at a poker game.

The name is just one letter less than the 100-character limit set by the country’s Department of Internal Affairs.

I would hate to have to write that on my spelling tests. Also, what do his friends and family call him? I would shorten it to Havoc Spock Frostnova. If this story has taught me anything it’s that I need to start making better bets. Having to spend the night in that boring haunted house doesn’t have nearly the lasting effect of changing your name. And just think of the batsh*t crazy names you could get away with here. Just look at some of the names people are giving their babies these days.
