I think we can all agree that objectively speaking, burgers are a near-perfect food. They can be altered to suit most dietary restrictions and have the perfect combination of textures and taste.
But like all perfect things – the ozone layer, the 1994 animated version of The Lion King and civil discourse – the human ego has ruined it to bits.
No longer do we respect the tried and true formula of patty (meat or plant-based), salad, sauce and cheese sandwiched between a bun, with rogue combinations involving doughnuts, pickles and deep fryers entering the mix.
It’s obscene and we shan’t stand for it.
From the lamington burger to the sacrilegious ‘galaxy buns,’ here are seven burger monstrosities we’d like to see extinct.
In other food news, apparently six fries are the perfect portion of chips, and excuse us? Post continues below.
1. The Lamington burger
Adelaide burger joint, Chuck Wagon 175 recently shared their Australia Day burger and Australia is furious.
The plain silly creation involves a double beef patty, double bacon, double cheese combo wedged between two lamington buns. Not only does this sound gross but we have questions: What about its structural integrity? Why would you mix chocolate and meat? Why?!
This is an un-Australian abomination and it should be our constitutional right to refuse its existence.
