'Captain Awesome' Dude Gets ID'd

12/10/2010 8:00 AM PST BY Johnny Lopez

That crazy guy who legally changed his name to "Captain Awesome" now has the official Oregon state identification to prove it.

Last month, unemployed 27-year-old Douglas Allen Smith Jr. legally changed his name after a character on the TV series "Chuck."

Good thing he's not a "Grey's Anatomy" fan, "McSteamy" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

If you have to change your name to "Awesome," you are probably the opposite. At 5'2" (shorter than me, even!), he's probably got a few inadequacies he's trying to overcome. The name change will make him the subject of more ridicule than anything else. I plan to help with the ridicule.

Loser!

People are gonna kick his arse just they can say they beat up "Captain Awesome." At 5'2" I'm pretty sure he's used to it though.

that's really going to help him find a job. Add him to the list of people permanently living off the government. Probably going to claim mental disability.

Try googling "captain awesome id" You'll see how far his fame has spread. What a strange world this is...

No driver's license, no car, no permanent address, no hair, no height, no job, yet this guy is in the media around the entire freaking world! He's getting more publicity than if he were Oksana's lawyer for a week.

Talk about free publicity, he scored on this one. Too bad he can't cash in on it.
