“You are what you eat” has become an awkward legal reality for one serious London burger enthusiast: This gutsy 33-year-old, Simon Smith, is now named “Bacon Double Cheeseburger.” The name change occurred under precisely the circumstances you’re assuming it did: Cheeseburger loves Burger King, and one night he and his friends got drunk and started joking about funny names.While forcing the state to recognize you as a Burger King sandwich would cause many people grief on par with getting a Double Down calf tattoo, Cheeseburger swears there are in fact “no regrets at all” and offers this airtight logic rationalizing the change: “A name is the least important part of your personality. It’s given to you by someone else.” Apparently, Dad is still chuckling about the stunt for now, but Mom and Cheeseburger’s fiancée need time to come around — “No girl ever dreams of spending her big day marrying a man called Bacon,” he admits.

Whatever the case, it’s clear Cheeseburger loves himself a good stunt:

And while his mom and future wife may not, they should at least pause to consider the lifelong perks:
