An Oregon man has legally changed his name to Captain Awesome, a move that the guy formerly known as Douglas Allen Smith Jr. (fuck you, Douglas Allen Smith Sr.!) says was inspired by the character on NBC’s Chuck, played by Ryan McPartlin. Perhaps the best part of this entire story is the ending of this quote: ““I just thought it was really funny that Devon’s father always called him Captain Awesome because ‘a poor nickname builds good character,’” said the local Awesome, an out-of-work cabinet installer.” Still, just imagine all the incredible cabinets he’ll be installing now.
