Earlier this month, angry chef Ron Eyester received a cease and desist letter from McAlister's Deli. The letter informed him that he must change the name of the popular breakfast sandwich at his Morningside restaurant Rosebud— it's called The Big Nasty, which also happens to be the name of a roast beef sandwich at the national deli chain. Eyester does plan to change it— and is even soliciting recommendations for a new name— but he's having a bit of fun with McAlister's first. Below, see some of his best related tweets from over the weekend.

@McAlistersDeli Any franchise opportunities available? I think people in Morningside would go crazy for that trademarked butterball turkey.— Ron Eyester (@theangrychef) October 18, 2013
@McAlistersDeli If hear anyone say "SPUD" over the weekend at Rosebud, I'll be sure to escort them off the property.— Ron Eyester (@theangrychef) October 18, 2013
