He should keep the "X". It makes his name sounds original.

As a fellow 'X' sporter, i'm all in favour of David being as phony as he likes. Once you're registered with the Screenwriters' Guild of America (SGA) under a certain name, that's the one you're stuck with if you wish to write for anything that's produced in America. It doesn't change the fact that he's still David S. Cohen, it just means that his professional persona is that touch cooler.

David should keep the "X" in a freezer to stop it going mouldy.

I agree with everyone else, the X does make his name sound more professional.

For the 40th or so time in this thread: The X makes it sound cool!
I always wondered what that X stood for, but obviously it doesn't.
Well, I guess reality is what you make of it...

I always thought "David Cohen" was a pretty unique name in and by itself, so finding out two different people had the exact same name/initials and had basically the same job was a bit of a surprise.

Then finding out someone had been living under the alias of "David Cohen" while being an inspiration for a Futurama character was pretty shocking.

From the PYHOMS audio commentary:

DiMaggio: "Malfunctioning Eddie, a great tribute to Crazy Eddie."
Cohen: "Crazy Eddie, yeah, who, uuhhh.."
DiMaggio: "Who's prices were insane."
Cohen: "By the way, I have to add: Crazy Eddie, also known as Eddia Antar I believe, he was wanted for tax evation or something, something like that. He fled, and he ended up in Israel, and the caught him living under the name David Cohen. That's my connection to Crazy Eddie."
DiMaggio: :patented Bender laugh:
Groening: "Was he really crazy?"
Cohen: "No. He had good taste in aliases"

Actually I know two other different Dave Cohens in real life.  Although I think one spells his late name "Cohn."  It's like the Jewish 'John Smith'....

Cohen is a pretty common surname and David is a pretty common first name.
