GUEST,Shame McChongo BS: The Mother of all BS threads (59138* d) RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads 18 Jun 13


My family came to the New World in the late 19th Century from Northern Ireland. My great-great grandfather, for whom I am named, was named "Seamus." Our surname was "McChurch." The Immigration Officer was drunk and laughed with his friends (also drunken) over the name and changed it to "Shame McChongo" on his papers. As a matter of family pride and honour we kept it; I am actually Shame McChongo III. My late father did explore changing it back but was told by Ottawa that it wasn't possible as too much time had gone by.

Please stop using my names in such a degrading fashion.
