Phuc Dat Bich


Globally dubbed the person with the world's most unfortunate name, it has now emerged that one Phuc Dat Bich is not entirely as he seems.

Indeed, despite lamenting that he was constantly being kicked off Facebook for his moniker – not to mention that no one would take him seriously – the man formerly known as Phuc has made a confession: the whole thing was totally fabricated.

Signing off a new online post from 'Joe Carr,' (aka, Joker), the young Australian explained: "What started as a joke between friends, became a prank that made a fool out of the media and brought out the best in the people who reached out to me."

He added: "It goes to show that an Average Joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources," before concluding with: "Continue being the best person you can be and make your mark on the world in whatever way you can – even if it is a simple prank."

The newly-named Mr Carr actually shared his viral post back in January, but it was only picked up by press – at first in Australia, and then globally – a week ago. 

He had initially lamented: “I've been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive… Is it because I'm Asian?"

In the aftermath, the man in question was also contacted by Guardian Australia. He told the agency that his real name was Tin Le and that he was 23 and lived in Melbourne, however, he also refused requests for verification.



There are plenty of folk who confess to not being all that crazy about their name.

Maybe their parents opted for a traditional moniker that nowadays just doesn’t appeal – or perhaps their mum or dad were alternative types who had a moment of madness in the labour ward.

However, as the internet proves again and again, there is ALWAYS someone far worse off.

Take, for example, one poor Australian chap – who certainly sports one of the more cringe-inducing titles we’ve stumbled across recently.

In a frustrated Facebook post, Mr Phuc Dat Bich – who has been accused in the past of making up his name – stated: “I find it highly irritating the fact that nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it.

Indeed, taking matters into his own hands, 23-year-old Phuc decided to share a snap of his passport, proving once and for all he’s the real deal.

“I've been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive,” he added. "Is it because I'm Asian? Is it?”

And although Phuc Dat Bich is actually correctly pronounced ‘Phoop Dook Bic,’ native-English speakers – overwhelmingly in the majority in Australia – can’t help but say the words phonetically.

Indeed, Mr Dat Bich furthermore highlighted that his Facebook account has even been “shut down multiple times”.

On the plus side, his online complaint, which was actually posted back in January but has only now gone viral, has received more than 125,000 likes and has been shared some 67,000 times.
