Fox News – A 23-year-old Nebraska man walked into a court room in York County Monday afternoon as Tyler Gold — and walked out as Tyrannosaurus Rex, the York News-Times reported. Gold said he wanted to change his name “because the (T-Rex designation) is cooler,” according to an official filing he made with court. “Also, as an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognizable.” Gold repeated this line of thought aloud during the court proceedings from the witness stand, the York News-Times said.
When I was a kid, when I was a little boy, I always wanted to be a dinosaur. I wanted to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex more than anything in the world. I made my arms short and I roamed the back yard, I chased the neighborhood cats, I growled and I roared, everybody knew me and was afraid of me. Then one day my dad said “Keith you are 17, it’s time to throw childish things aside” and I said “OK Pop.” But he didn’t really say that. He said “Stop being a fucking dinosaur and get a job”. But you know I thought to myself, I’ll go to school and get an English major, I’ll practice blogging for a little while, and then I’ll come back. I never did.
The point is don’t lose your dinosaur and if you have the chance, change your name to Tyrannosaurus Rex and entrepreneur the shit out of yourself. Tyler Gold living the dinosaur dream.
