Man Not Allowed To Go Abroad As Surname Is ‘Too Rude’ For Passport


Could you imagine this happening to you?

Kenny now just travels to the UK for his holidays and won’t alter his name again.

It should come as no surprise that a man who changed his name just for fun has lived to regret it.

Kenny, whose last name was Kennard, was denied a passport after renaming himself something “slightly ridiculous.”

After changing his name in 2016, Kenny was able to obtain a driver’s licence under his new name; but, when his passport ran out in 2019, he was denied a new one because his name “may cause offence.”

Kenny, a resident of Bude, Cornwall, filed three appeals against the decision made by HM Passport Office; nevertheless, the Home Office declined to modify its decision.

Instead of renaming himself, Kenny has vacations in the UK.

And the name of offence?

“I’d decided to change my name to Fu-Kennard a few years back,” he said in 2019. 

“When I’d had to apply for a driving licence, it was accepted fine, so I figured it wouldn’t make much difference in applying for a passport. 

“How wrong I was!”

Kenny said Home Office officials told his new name “could cause offence or was vulgar” .

“So I complained, but they upheld their decision so I complained again. I was then told they’d keep the fee for administration costs. 

“If I wanted to take the matter further, they said I’d need to contact my MP. 

“So I wrote to MP Scott Mann, and he replied saying they’re within their remit to refuse.”

Kenny said all the back-and-fourth left him “skint with no passport, like a prisoner in my own country.”

“On the one hand, I find the whole thing funny – as do all of my friends,” Kenny reasoned. 

“But I’m also finding it hard to believe the name could be construed as anything but funny and slightly ridiculous. It’s just a joke.”

Kenny said that he agreed with Home Office policy that “not all names are acceptable, such as racial hate words or anything that invokes hatred” but failed to see how ‘Fu-Kennard’ was “offensive”.

He added: “And I object to them denying my chosen name.”

Kenny applied for a passport in May, June, and July of 2019 but was not successful.

The Home Office rejected his application, referring to its name-changing process in Section 2.

The guidelines list a series of “names that may cause outrage or offence” that could be classed as “unacceptable” and not fit for a passport. 

They include “the use of swear words; sexually explicit references; inappropriate religious connotation; is vulgar, offensive, or libellous to an individual; makes use of a name of a person living or dead which may cause public concern”.

The guidance also state: “This applies to phonetic, as well as actual use of words comprising of part or the entire name.”

Plus-Size Traveler Hits Out At Airlines For Their Small Seats And Toilets

Passengers Recall What Happened As Fellow Traveller Had Horrific Diarrhoea On Plane

The passengers had to endure quite the flight!

People on the airline remember what happened when a fellow passenger experienced terrible diarrhoea.

One unfortunate passenger on a Delta Airlines flight was forced to do a U-turn after experiencing a terrible case of the runs.

On September 1, the Airbus A350 was flying from Atlanta to Barcelona when all hell literally let loose, including the poor guy’s bowels. Look it over:

The man, whose identity is unknown, had tried to make it to the restroom stalls but had run out of time and had to do his business down the centre of the aisle of the craft.

If you’re reading this while drinking tea, I apologise.

“This is a biohazard issue,” the pilot said to air traffic control, recorded from and shared on X, formerly Twitter.

“We’ve had a passenger who’s had diarrhoea all the way through the airplane, so they want us to come back to Atlanta.”

beyond a series of transfers involving both passengers and crew, Flight DL194 finally arrived in Barcelona at 5:10 p.m. the next day, eight hours beyond its scheduled arrival time, according to information from Flightradar24.

he airline has since issued a statement on the matter, explaining: “Delta Flight 194 from Atlanta to Barcelona returned to Atlanta following an onboard medical issue.”

“Our teams worked as quickly and safely as possible to thoroughly clean the airplane and get our customers to their final destination,” a Delta spokesperson said.

“We sincerely apologise to our customers for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans.”

Unsurprisingly, footage of the awful incident making its way across social media depicting the cleanup aboard the aeroplane quickly became popular.

In the brief video, paper towels can be seen lining the aisle and attempting to remove the numerous dark sludge streaks.

What a beautiful image.

People who were unfortunate enough to be on the trip have now recounted just how it was around the time.

“Both my wife and I were on the flight,” wrote one Twitter user. “It was a mess.

“The pilots made the right decision to turn around. The ground crew ripped out the carpet and put new in. Considering the circumstances, the ground crew did a great job, along the attendants and the pilots.”

Another passenger who also drew the short straw said it was the worst smell imaginable.

“My partner was on that flight! It was pretty bad. It was dribbled down the aisle, smelled horrible,” they said.

“The vanilla scented disinfectant used on it only made it smell like vanilla s**t.

Well, it’s not like you can even crack a window open.

Airline Pilot Explains Where Your Poo Goes When You Flush It On A Plane

The pilot has more than 500,000 TikTok followers and 700,000 Instagram followers under the handle @flywithgarrett.

He often uploads content about his travels and interesting facts about planes.

The most recent query from one of Garrett’s followers was what occurs when people use the lavatory on an aeroplane.

And it’s safe to say that his response has left people in awe.

On TikTok, Garrett captions his post: “Ever curious where it goes when you’re on the aeroplane?”

He explains in the video that many people believe that when a plane’s toilet is emptied midflight, human fluids just “dump out” of the aircraft.


Ever curious where it goes when you’re on the airplane? 🤢💩✈️

As Garrett explains, this is undoubtedly not the case: “When you’re on an aeroplane and you have to go, where does it go?

“Did you know that whenever you flush the toilet on the aircraft, it actually doesn’t dump out into the population down below?

“It goes through plumbing to the rear of the aircraft and the seal compartments where the ground crew at the destination will remove all that waste.

“On a 747 – on a long haul flight – toilets can be flushed over a thousand times, creating over 320 gallons of waste.”

He adds: “That’s a lot.”

The clip has been viewed a staggering 4.3 million times and thousands have taken to the comments to share their thoughts.

Shocked, one viewer responds: “Since I was a kid I used to think when over a sea the pilot flushes it out. Omg!”

“Yeah! I had to ask a flight attendant. Was really interesting,” another adds.

Tagging a friend, a third person says: “See, I told you they didn’t dump out.”

“I thought they dropped it in the ocean,” a fourth admits.

While another says: “I just haven’t thought about this like ever.”

Many others have taken to the comments to say they can’t believe people ever thought otherwise.

One TikToker questions: “Other actual people believe that it would get expelled from the aircraft to the population below? And if so, do these people vote?”

Another asks: “Wait… people actually think it dumps out below?

“So they think there’s poo falling out of the sky and it’s not the birds?”

“I still don’t get it that there are still people that believe aeroplanes just dump it,” a third viewer remarks.

The Reason You Should Never Wipe More Than 3 Times After Pooing

How many times do you wipe when going to the toilet?

Often when going to the toilet excessive wiping can be a problem. For people who struggle with this problem, a pelvic floor specialist is on hand to explain why going over three wipes is not advised.

In a quick TikTok video posted by BIEN Australia, a pelvic floor physiotherapist offers insight on how many wipes are ideal to use when using the lavatory.

The 57-second short also seeks to offer a way to lessen overzealous wiping.
When you wipe more than twice or three times, it is referred to as faecal smearing, the expert says in response to the typical worry and provides comfort.

‘Essentially, it occurs when too much faecal matter remains at the a*** entrance even after you have finished your bowel movement’ the expert explains.

The physical therapist proposes a way to address this problem and maybe reduce the amount of wipes needed.

She advises using a waterfall-like pattern of gradual pelvic floor muscle contractions.

Individuals can conduct four controlled squeezes towards the conclusion of their bowel movement by progressively increasing the squeeze from 20% to 50%, 80%, and then 100%.


This method seeks to close the anal sphincter, which will lessen the likelihood of residual stools on the a*** entry, which is frequently caused by a weak external sphincter.

@bien.aus Faecal smeaing – my last video on yhis blew up! If you are wiping more than three times try the following: – squeezing and relaxing the pelvic floor 5-10 times after a poo – eating more fruits and veg – drinking more water – avoiding constipation and haemorroids – seeing a pelvic floor physio if the above dont work for an assesment 🤸🏾‍♀️ #pelvicfloorphysio #ibs #chrones #pelvicfloorexercises ♬ original sound – BIEN Australia

The video clip also cites other elements that may lead to the need for repeated wiping, such as haemorrhoids or scar tissue around the a**.

She encourages obtaining expert medical counsel for additional examination in such situations if the indicated strategy does not prove successful.

Using these technique should help the efficiency of your bathroom visits and make things cleaner and easier!
