What's in a name? Maybe Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop
A Wisconsin man was expected to be charged today with possessing a small amount of marijuana and a knife.
Why in the world is this news, you rightfully ask?
Because the suspect's name is Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop.
Maybe today is a slow news day. Maybe everyone's had it up to HERE with election news. Maybe everyone's grumpy because of those New Year's diet resolutions. Who knows. But many people apparently needed a laugh today. How else to explain why this story skyrocketed around the blogosphere Monday for no good reason other than ... the dude's got a pretty funny name.
But this story gets even better. Reuters reports that Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop -- pause for pronunciation and chuckle -- used to be named Jeffrey Drew Wilschke. He had his name legally changed last November.
Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop, 30, was already on probation for a weapons violation when he was arrested Thursday at a Madison-area park following complaints from neighbors, according to Reuters. The drugs and knife were allegedly discovered after his arrest.
Here's hoping that there's a video camera in the courtroom when the judge tries to keep a straight face while calling out the suspect's name.
