The 25 weirdest burgers ever made

In celebration of Mr Hyde's National Burger Day, when once again the UK will come together to sample only the finest meats and glistening of brioche buns, we thought it wise to list all the times when the world's love for burgers possibly went a bit too far.

And so, from braille buns to exotic animal stuffings, the great to the downright wacky, we've scoured the globe for the burgers you'll struggle to find in your nearest restaurant.

    The donut's cooler cousin, the Cronut, works surprisingly well in burger form. Think a bite to eat for brunch. And you thought your last brioche was sugary.

    If you ever find yourself in Baltimore, avoid Natty Boh's beer (it goes down nicely but will make you question your own mortality the following day). Do, however, get yourself down to Kooper's Chowhound Burger Wagon and pray they're serving this purple piece of purple-clad genius.
