Let’s all have a moment of thanks for all the mums and dads out there who didn’t call their children ridiculous names… like the classic Wayne King, Mike Hunt and Tigerlilly Raindance No.4 Bus stop Smith.
But for poor 23-year-old Phuc Dat Bich, whose Vietnamese parents have no fault in naming their kid something pretty standard in their own language, has had enough at being ridiculed for it’s resemblance to an altogether different English meaning.
Vietnamese-Australian Phuc has been banned from Facebook several times, and has now been forced to post a picture of his passport to the social media site to prove that this is, in fact, what he’s called.
The bank worker, who says he finds the whole thing “highly irritating” – yes, we can imagine this is a massive ball ache – posted the photo which clearly displays his name, and this accompanying rant, which has now been shared thousands of times:
“Ive been accused of using a false and misleading name, which I find very offensive. I find it highly irritating the fact that nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it. Is it because Im Asian? Is it? Having my [Facebook account] shut down multiple times and forced to change my name to my real name, so just to put it out there. My name. Yours sincerely, Phuc Dat Bich.”
Well at least everyone knows he’s not phuc-ing around now.
