Jan-30-14  mindanalyzer: Wow Mr Takeda has a very long name
Jan-31-14  John Abraham: He must be part Japanese.
Jun-06-14  cbpatzer: Fier is currently playing a tournament
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Is it legal to have that much name? Does it all fit on a passport?
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: They write on the front and back of the page.
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: On my Native American passport, my name is recorded as <He Who Rises At Dawn, Yawns, Farts, Steps Out Of The Teepee, Walks Into The Bushes, Pisses On A Pretty Flower, Scratches His Right Butt Cheek, Scratches His Left Butt Cheek, Shivers From The Cold, Decides To Go Back To Bed> .

I misspelled that once on an application and have been referred to as <The Otter That Refuses To Brush His Teeth> ever since.

Just one stinking wrong-placed letter can ruin a guy.

Jun-07-14  john barleycorn: He probably holds an accordion type passport
