Jackmeoff Mudd is in a lot of trouble. The criminal formerly known as Brian Eric Rhodes wasn't messing around with prostitutes or masturbating in a public theater like his name might suggest -- he was arrested earlier this week for a bevy of reasons after he resisted police when they caught him banging on some bathroom doors and knocking stuff over in a public restroom in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. If you're wondering if Jackmeoff Mudd is his real name, the answer is yes, yes it is.
Jackmeoff, 54, is in jail with bail set at $300 and will face an ill-fated judge at some point in the near future. The judge will then enter an exclusive group of lawmen who've had the pleasure of having some bizarrely named people in their chambers. Remember Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop?
That guy was arrested back in June for violating his bail conditions.
Then there's Lleieusszuieusszesszes Willihiminizisteizzi Hurrizzissteizzi, an alleged Siamese arsonist who was considered an undesirable alien in California back in the mid 1920s. Say that name three times fast and a genie will appear.
And who could forget Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116. While this person, as far as I can tell, has never been arrested, his or her parents had a few days in court when the Swedish government fined them for naming their child something so ... quixotic.
Parents in New Zealand were also questioned by the government when they tried to name their son 4Real. The Kiwi Uncle Sam wouldn't allow it, so they decided to go with Superman, instead. But they totally just call him 4Real 4 short, yo.
Last but not least, there's a Texas kid named ESPN. Nothing says you love your child, and a cable sports channel, quite like the name ESPN Malachi McCall.
Jackmeoff is one of those rare individuals who, like the people above, will make headlines for whatever he does. No one would've batted an eye if Brian Eric Rhodes was arrested earlier this week in Florida, but Jackmeoff Mudd? Now that's a story.
What's the weirdest name you've ever heard?
