A fictional character, yesterday

Fictional character Rodney Bigginsthwaite has told everyone, to no-one's great surprise, that he wishes he had a less stupid name.

The bearded chap told us: 'I wish I had a name that said something about my character, rather than something that sounds stereotypically northern. I hate flat caps, ferrets and real ale. I am not even a good stereotype. Perhaps I should have been invented by someone with a better idea of how to do these things properly.'

Professor Erudite, from the University of Life, told us: 'We judge people, particularly fictional people, by their names. I mean, if you call me names, such as Johnson or Trump, you are really only asking for trouble, aren't you?'

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
