What's in a name? Shitloads of money, that's what.

LONDON (Defecated News) - At the International Court Of Human Rights today, a British Sri Lankan was awarded £4.2m today after he successfully sued a high street burger restaurant for racism.

Gajendranrajakumar Sivapathasundaram (19) of Greenford, Middlesex had sued his employer MacDougall's for racism after it refused to use his full name on his company badge. Instead, they put 'G.S.' on the badge, and he was often referred to as 'Gaj Siva'

"I found this most insulting and I hated the way they could not use the name that my parents had given me with pride, love and affection. To me, GS meant nothing, and therefore made me feel like a nothing", said Mr. Sivapathasundaram tearfully clutching his cheque.

His manager at the fast food king responded to the verdict and told a press conference,

"He was always treated as one of the team and with the utmost respect. We used the names 'GS' and 'Gaj Siva' with affection and to make it easy for other team members who found his full name a mouthful. The badges were just too small to accommodate his full name. We estimate a full name badge would have needed to be thirteen inches long, which would not have been a very sensible thing to do."

He now plans on opening a chain of his own restaurants bearing his full name with pride.
