That's Mr. Awesome to you

Douglas Allen Smith, Jr. from Oregon is now Captain Awesome literally and legally. The unemployed cabinet installer says he was inspired by the nickname of a character on the TV show "Chuck," Dr. Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb. A judge approved the name change and Mr. Awesome's request for an unusual signature. His bank, however, has refused to accept the signature because the signature is too easy to forge.

    I agree with the bank. I can easily draw 2 lines with arrows, along with a smiley face.
