That's much more like it.

Teenagers around the world are demanding to change their names from those given them by their parents.

"My parents gave me a girl's name," explained one boy. "I lost count of the number of times I've been beaten up for being named Francis," he plead after being released from juvenile detention for assaulting one of his alleged bullies.

"Do you know what I've had to go through being named Faith?" cried one girl whose parents refused to press charges against the family's Catholic school nun for doing irreparable damage to her hands from repeated ruler slaps.

Thousands of boys named Dickinson have already filed change of name requests with varying success in a system that places onus on the parents to choose their children's moniker.

After dozens of interviews, The Spoof has agreed to help establish a relief fund for children who wish to change their parental unit imposed label.

"No one should have to be known as Swallows," the paper stated.

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