OK. I admit it. I own a Safeway (grocery store) savings card with Heywood Jablome on it. Every time I use it, I get a receipt with "my name" printed in big letters on the bottom. Most of the checkers send me on my way with a cheery "Thank you, Mister Jubloam. Have a nice day!"

Needless to say, I'm easily amused. I'll bet there are thousands of Mr. Jubloams roaming the aisles of Safeway...

Just make sure you NEVER use a credit card with that Safeway card.

I once met a woman who had an elaborate fake ID that claimed she was Ivana Kuchakokov.

Kind of reminds me of this classic airport prank.

One of the Toronto-area radio shows had someone legally change their name to Heywood Jablome for a chance at $50,000 or so.

I worked in a grocery store during my teens. One slow night I called the front desk and ask for them to page "Mr. Meoff, first name Jack".

It worked, laughs for everybody.
