Bizarre Name Leads To Pot Bust, Arrest
January 9, 2012
A Wisconsin man with the bizarre name of Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop was expected to be charged today with possessing a small amount of marijuana and a knife.
Maybe today is a slow news day. Maybe everyone's had it up to HERE with election news. Maybe everyone's grumpy because of those New Year's diet resolutions. Who knows. But many people apparently needed a laugh today. How else to explain why this story skyrocketed around the blogosphere Monday for no good reason other than ... the dude's got a pretty funny name.
But this story gets even better. Reuters reports that Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop -- pause for pronunciation and chuckle -- used to be named Jeffrey Drew Wilschke. He had his name legally changed last November.
Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop's arrest made headlines in Oregon, Texas, Florida, Vancouver... We could go on, but you get the idea.
Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-bop-bop, 30, was already on probation for a weapons violation when he was arrested Thursday at a Madison-area park following complaints from neighbors, according to Reuters. The drugs and knife were allegedly discovered after his arrest.
No reason was given why the former Mr. Wilschke changed his name other than because he might have grown weary of everyone misspelling Wilschke.
