A man got so drunk that he ended up changing their name officially to Celine Dion, which is also the name of a very famous singer.
Not only that, but the man totally forgot about him changing his name and remembered everything when the official papers came in.
Thomas Dodd changed his name to Celine Dion after a drinking session while he was watching Celine Dion performing on TV.
Dodd, 30, paid around £89 to legally change his name to Celine Dion.
Thomas is now officially known as Mr. Celine Dion.
Talking about the moment he got the confirmation papers from the government, he said he nearly fainted.
Talking about Celine Dion, he said:
I am slightly obsessed with her, I’m not going to lie. During lockdown I’ve been watching a lot of live concerts on the TV. I can only think I’ve been watching one of hers and had a ‘great idea’ after a few drinks. I walked in from work and there was a big white envelope with ‘do not bend’ written across it. I nearly passed out in my kitchen when I opened it. My initial concern was, how on earth do I tell the HR department at work that I need to change my email footer? Now I’m thinking it could be a great way to get backstage.
When asked what he wanted, the man said he just hopes he does not get stopped by the authorities during a checkpoint.
I mean, that is funny.
He also talked about his friends and family during an interview.
Apparently it’s the funniest thing people have read in 2020. I’m glad it’s entertaining people though, it’s not been the best year. Hopefully it will give people a laugh, even if it is at my expense. My mother didn’t see the funny side though. I did explain it could be worse and it could’ve been Boris Johnson – we’re just lucky he doesn’t have any live concerts. She’s laughing about it now. I told my sister and she choked on her sandwich. They seem to be seeing the funny side.
As of now, Thomas does not have any plans to change his name back to Thomas.
