Japanese fast food chain Lotteria is known for its monstrous burgers and huge tubs of fries, and now they’ve turned their creations into equally ridiculous 5-patty cheeseburger and shrimp burger USB sticks. They’re 18.5cm tall and have 4 GB of memory, but you can’t actually buy them. Instead, Lotteria is giving them away to two followers on Twitter in order to commemorate the 7th anniversary of their “zeppin” (superior) line of burgers.

Hong Kong McDonald’s latest burger creation, dubbed the Batman Double Diner Beef Burger, has cool Batman-themed packaging and marketing, but that’s pretty much it. The food itself isn’t even black. I mean, come on.
Redditor jc1593 (who’s been documenting the protests in Hong Kong too) snapped a few pics of the Batman meal, and it features a burger with two patties, a fried egg, onions and sauce, as well as some fries with “squeezy cheese.” Eww. The burger is the first of the chain’s Justice League series of burgers, but we’re not quite sure what they’ll end up doing for Superman or Wonder Woman. Oh! Maybe the latter one will be invisible?

For example, it says “I like games and fast food. I also make questionable fashion choices.”

Fatburger is hopping aboard the gluten-free train with the “protein-style burger.” This KFC DoubleDown-esque creation features lettuce, pickles, relish, onion and mustard that’s all stuffed between two lean burger patties–no buns required! The new burger debuted at the chain’s Beverly Hills location this week but you can expect to see it hit Fatburger menus nationwide shortly starting at $4.50.
I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry. But it looks like your burger is burning. I better get to flipping it with this nifty Doctor Who spatula, which is made from silicone and features a metal handle that’s 11 inches long. It’s even better than the sonic.
But wait. You’re probably saying to yourself, “I’m not eating a burger right now. I’m not at a barbecue. And that spatula isn’t available until October 2014. How are you doing this? What are you?”
Well… I’m a Time Lord? You’re welcome.

Behold, the Horn Dog. According to Porn Burger, it’s basically a cross between a burger and a corn dog with an added twist. It’s described thusly:
“a cut of pickled beef frank and a slice of crispy pork belly, sandwiched between two smash-cooked beef patties, dipped in a jalapeño, whole kernel corn batter, fried, and drizzled with honey.”
Now, if you read that, and you’re somehow not trying to devour your computer monitor… well, then you’re just a better human being than I am.

PYT in Philadelphia is a burger joint with a knack for cooking up inventive, and slightly insane, burgers. In the past, they’ve come up with such delicious monstrosities as the deep-fried Twinkie burger, the fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich kettle chip Sriracha bun burger and the spaghetti burger. They recently released a new culinary creation, and it just might surpass anything they’ve done previously. Enter the deep fried Hot Pocket burger.
The burger features a beef patty with American cheese and a light drizzle of truffle all sandwiched between two-deep fried Hot Pockets with Philly cheese steak. The burger is only available for a limited time so grab it while you can. Also, quick aside, if you decide to actually order one of these monsters, I’d hold off from eating anything for a few days after. Your stomach will thank you.
