German Burger King has dropped a new range of burgers and the menu is - quite frankly - vomit-inducing.
You can choose from fried egg and banana, a currywurst sausage on a burger bun with a marinated herring, vanilla ice cream with eggs and olives on a burger bun, or the pièce de résistance: a burger with layers of pancake, fresh raspberries, ice cream, regular cream, and beef.
Yep, that one is straight up giving us Friends vibes, when Rachel makes a trifle with a beef layer.

Unsurprisingly, the new menu has sent social media into a tizzy.
One social media user said: "I'm not someone who does this a lot but holy f**k?"
A second added: "[It] looks like you asked a six-year-old to combine all his favourite foods."
A third commented: "I might be pregnant because this actually doesn’t sound disgusting."
But before you fly off the handle - or out the door to get one, depending on how weird your taste buds are - there is a method to this madness.
And it has everything to do with the above pregnancy comment.
Yes, this is a special menu for all the expectant mums out there in Germany.

According to German Burger King, they're here to 'make your pregnancy cravings come true as a burger'.
"With a representative survey of (expectant) mums, Burger King uncovered the myth surrounding pregnancy cravings," Burger King Germany said in a statement.
"The result: pregnancy cravings are the most normal thing in the world and resistance is (almost) pointless."
The Pregnancy Whopper was the result of a survey commissioned by German Burger King.
According to the Burger King Germany survey, 58 per cent of women have cravings during pregnancy.
Data also showed that the three most popular weird food combinations for expectant German mums are marmalade and pickles, fish fingers and applesauce, and currywurst and brathering (that marinated herring we mentioned earlier).
While it is a definite no thanks from us, it's no revelation that when you're pregnant you can crave some pretty wild things.
Or you can get sick just by the sight or smell of food, so we do have to wonder how it went down on Mother's Day in Berlin this year.
