    But Dave Assman of Melville, Sask., says SGI has rejected his request to allow him to use "Assman" on a personalized plate, calling it an "unacceptable slogan."

    "It's my last name, I've always had it," he said, of the name with German roots, that he pronounces as "Oss-men."

    "I'm not ashamed of it. There's nothing bad about it."

    In 1999, the name even sparked its own "Assmania" craze, when late-night talk show host David Letterman found and interviewed a Saskatchewan gas station worker and manager by the name of Dick Assman.

    Reminds me of the time I went to the Sony store when it was on Whyte Ave and the salesman asked my name. I told him, and as he held out his hand he said “You F*ck.” I wasn’t sure how to take that until he handed me his card that said “Ufuk Yavasser.” I kept that card for years and years and years.
