A man in his late twenties has abandoned his family heritage after signing up to Facebook using katakana to spell his name.
Chris Taylor, or クリス・テーラー as he is now known, didn’t take the decision lightly pausing for about ten seconds before clicking confirm.
“I couldn’t avoid my natural transformation into Japanese heredity,” said クリス・テーラー.
“Deep down I did feel a small sense of guilt but I’m happy to take the criticism that comes my way if it means having a dot in the middle of my christian name and surname.”
クリス・テーラー‘s grandmother is currently in shock that her grandson betrayed the family lineage and that there is a system on computers called social networking services where one can post pictures of what they eat.
“I knew there was a thing called email, but I didn’t know people published mundane shit for public consumption,” said grandmother テーラー.
First generation Japanese クリス・テーラー now has a firm understanding of the spirit of ‘wa’ and questions the existence of four seasons outside the boundaries of Japan.
