Pizza Hut is selling this mutant creature in the Middle East, where, if the ad is to be believed, ordering a hamburger at a pizza place is a GIANT AND HILARIOUS JOKE and Pizza Hut just wants to shut those douches up.

It’s pretty unclear to me not only why anyone would want to eat this but how they would manage it. I mean, a cheeseburger is meat with cheese and bread and some pizzas are cheese and bread with meat.
