Man Gets Drunk -- Changes Name to 'Celine Dion'


There's not one Celine Dion, but two, walking this earth.

You know the famous singer and now there's a 30-year-old, whose official birth certificate still reads “Thomas Dodd.” He legally changed his name to “Celine Dion” during a drunken blackout.

Mr. Celine Dion realized what he’d done when the paperwork arrived a few days after he submitted the online application. A bank statement confirmed that he paid $120 for the formal name-change. He got the idea while boozing and watching a Christmas Eve TV concert by the original Celine Dion. He admitted, “She’s my go-to person I listen to when I need cheering up.”

His mother expressed deep disappointment. Just not at altering the name she gave him, but also his habit of drunken stunts. Earlier in December, he “hired an Elsa from Frozen to perform on the driveway" when he was drunk and bored. (New York Post)
