That's hilarious.  Pretty funny reading the butt hurt comments.

Good for this guy.  To hell with anyone offended.   

What's next?  Can his kids wear their last name across the back of their hockey jerseys in minor hockey?  Where is the line on this crap?

Kramer had it on his Impala,

"The plate also scores him cat calls from passing drivers, and a date with a big-bottomed woman named Sally."

See also,

Dick Assman from Neudorf, Saskatchewan, aka "Assman the Gasman".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Assman#Career
"a Canadian gas station employee whose name propelled him to celebrity status across North America for four months in 1995."

He even got on the Letterman show, "...where he was a nightly feature for about a month."

"News reports did not indicate how closely (if at all) Dick and Dave Assman were related, but did note both pronounced their names the same way and were of German descent."

Pretty cheeky of him if you ask me!!
