Nicked Name

Douglas Allen Smith Jr, 27, has changed his name in court. The 27-year-old man from Eugene, Ore., is now legally “Captain Awesome”. After his day in court, the unemployed cabinet maker greeted visitors with “Hi! I’m Captain!” A fan of the TV show Chuck, Awesome says he “thought it was really funny that Devon’s father always called him Captain Awesome because ‘a poor nickname builds good character’.” (RC/Eugene Register-Guard) ...Huh: I could have sworn it was based on his mother’s nickname for him: “Major Disappointment”.
