Move over, Edward Scissorhands! You're no longer the world's most literally named Edward!
A judge's jaw dropped and an entire South Florida courtroom giggled like little school girls on Wednesday when the bailiff announced the name of the man being charged with drug possession — Edward Cocaine.
Judge John Hurley was so stunned, apparently, that all he could say was "What?"
But Eddie comes from a somewhat long line of proud Cocaines. He responded:
"My last name is Cocaine."
Wait, what? That can really happen?
The 34-year-old Ft. Lauderdale-grown guy explained:
"My great-grandparents came over here from Greece and they changed it. That was like in the 1920s."
C'mon, ancestors! What did you expect young Eddy to do with the name you gave him? Become an accountant?
Ed even went so far to admit to the judge that pretty much every time he gets pulled over by a cop, police ask him to step out of the vehicle when they see his name on the license. Sadzies!
So, what drug was Edward Cocaine charged with possessing?
