Words: Chris Antista, GamesRadar US
By far, the most popular TalkRadar bit of all time. Unfortunately, it’s hard to bring The Good King back for any other reason, since this improvised piece relates to a very specific, extremely bizarre news story that nobody remembers.
So, some dumbass kid in Norway wanted to change his name to “Sonic X,” after some dumbass hedgehog that used to star in great games. Whereas here in the states such a query would’ve been abruptly met with a “No.” or “Shut up” from a loving parent or guardian, Norwegian policy apparently dictates that only the KING OF GODDAMNED NORWAY is fit to yay or nay the idiotic requests of its young subjects. No seriously, this happened! We couldn’t help but envision a bored, powerless monarch with nothing better to do than shoot down the asinine whims of children and things just got funnier from there…

Chris:I have news. Speaking of uh politics, and you know we love doing this, this is one of my favorite stories, possibly of the entire podcast. uh, Norwegian king denies a child his request of having his name changed to Sonic X. There is some many things about this- no NOOO
Mikel: You'll thank me later son
Chris: His name "Krister" uh, how do you say that in Norwaygian?
Shane: I don't know
Mikel: I think it's pronounced "chhgchhchg"
Chris: Requested to have his name changed to Sonic X, not Sonic, not Sonic EX, Sonic, big capital X
Shane: Sonic Ten? (As in roman numeral X)
Chris: His parents never got back to him, he's like, "mom, dad, didn't you mail my letter?" and it's like "oooh, ok it's your birthday." Mail the letter off. The king responds, denies his request, and I love the idea. We saw that Disney cartoon Education for Death. Appealing to your king to change your name... seems incredibly weird!
King: Oh yes, what? Brett Elston? You want to be called what? Brett Belmont? Denied!
King: Does anybody have anymore requests for your king? Mikel Reparez!
Mikel: He's just scribbling that with a flourish with a giant plume pen.DENIED, BLAUH

King: We'll move on, Mikel Reparez, what would you like Mikel: the the king is James Mason?
King: Yes. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea...
Shane: Do you have the gong?
King: I don't
Mikel: God dammit, why don't you get the fucking gong?
King: We cancelled it, request a name Shane Patterson from a video game
Brett: Sound like fuckin... sounds like fuckin wheezydoor
King: Let me have this
King: Roxas? The king considers Roxas
Shane: Roxas Reparaz?
Brett: Roxas Reparaz?
King: Approved. Your name is now Roxas, Shane Patterson. Brett Elston, would you like bring forth a name at the knees of the king?
Brett: Sir, sir, I would love to be known as as meager KK Slider
