Why didn’t he just change his name to Nebraska Man?

Well, that might have been a pig in a poke.

Actually, I think the name “T Rex” is already taken:

Better than FLIP SLICK WILLARD ROMNEY, professional military service dodger from a family tradition of avoiding military service going back 150 years.

When they weren't hiding out inn Mexico to avoid polygamy charges.
