Man Changes Name to "Captain Awesome"

Just call him awesome. Captain Awesome.

An Oregon man has legally changed his name from Doug Allen Smith Jr. to Captain Awesome.

Why? Because he was inspired by Devon, a character on NBC’s Chuck. The new Captain Awesome says: “I just thought it was really funny that Devon’s father always called him Captain Awesome, because ‘a poor nickname builds good character,’” he tells The New York Post.

Doug Allen Smith Jr. a.k.a. Captain Awesome, is a 27-year-old unemployed cabinet maker.

A Lane County Circuit Court Judge approved the name change as well as Captain Awesome’s new signature, a smiley face with arrows pointing at it from each side.

Captain Awesome, unemployed. Who woulda thunk?
