The Hamdog is now a thing & it looks incredible

Left or right? The dark side or the light side? The blue pill or the red pill? Hamburger or hot dog?

Four of the most difficult two-option decisions that we will ever make in our lives.

But one genius in Australia has invented something that means never again will we have to choose between two of the most delicious food options that exist in this cruel world we live in: Mark Murray has invented and patented the Hamdog, a glorious Frankenstein's monster of a creation combining the hamburger and hot dog in one delicious meal.

He first appeared on Shark Tank - Australia's answer to Dragon's Den - where, unbelievably, they turned him down for funding despite him describing it as a "party in your mouth".

Now he has begun selling the Hamdog, to a predictably rapturous reception.

He told News.com.au, "We launched our marquee two months ago and we had people come from everywhere just to experience the Hamdog. At one stage the crew were knocking out about one every 15 seconds. It was amazing,"

The burger is split in half, as shown - allowing the sausage to run through it, almost as the Red Sea parted to allow Moses to cross.

It is then filled with tomato, lettuce, pickles, cheese, mustard, tomato sauce and mayo, with Murray saying, "We use all local ingredients. The only thing that's not from Western Australia are the pickles. At the moment there is a fair bit of labour involved in making the buns because they're made by people, not machines. We're still developing a way to semi automate production."

He is now looking for people to take on a franchise - you can follow the progress of the global spread of the Hamdog on its Facebook page.

Can we do the UK one, as soon as possible?
