Every few years the web throws up a bizarre food craze that only seems to exist within the Internet rather than real life. A couple of years ago it was cronuts then it was the rainbow bagel and now it's the "sushi burger," a natural evolution from the ramen burger.

Highlighted by Fox News, the sushi burger is like the regular burger, except that it squeezes its filling between two discs of rice instead of a bun. We're not sure why Fox News were reporting on Internet food crazes, when all they really ever do is question the validity of Obama's birth certificate, but maybe they were trying to correlate the decline of America with the rise of sushi burgers.

In between the rice discs, you'll often find typical sushi fillings such as raw fish or soft-shell crab, or run-of-the-mill beef accessorized with far-Eastern ingredients such as avocado, spicy mayo and pickled ginger. Originating in Japan, they first appeared on the menu of Japanese burger chain MOS, at some point in the 1980s and can now be found on social media accounts all around the world.

Feast your eyes on these prime examples:
