Everyone hates calls from telemarketers. In a bid to stop the unsolicited sales calls, a guy named Tim added an extra nine Ps to his surname.
Now, he is known as Tim Ppppppppprice.
Cost for Tim Pppppppppprice to change his name: $46.
Cost to update his passport: $107.
Pppppppppice explains his theory -- when telemarketers come across his name, they would skip it because it's far too difficult to pronounce.

"But I suppose it's a long term investment.
"No more pesky telemarketers calling him!"
