This isn't the first time at the rodeo.

We've expressed our disdain for the endless list of plate substitutions we've seen over the past while many times before – but these next few take the biscuit.

Just what were they thinking?!

1. Squid in a clog

A CLOG.

Where else could we begin?

2. A wooden block

Pancakes and syrup placed and poured onto what is known in the food business as 'a server's nightmare'. Honestly, who thought this would benefit anyone?

3. Crisps in a wheelie bin

Complete with graffiti tags.

4. Coffee in a trolley

Despite sounding like the cutest nursery rhyme you ever did sing, this is arguably one of the most fucking ludicrous in the list.

5. Paté on a shoulder bone

And if you thought the shoulder was the only body part to get any action on this list...

How wrong you were, my friend!

6. Chips in a children's motorised vehicle

It makes you wonder... how many Tonka toy trucks fit in a standard commercial dishwasher?

7. A yellow number plate, with the reg 'liqour'

Terrifyingly, the closest thing to a plate on the list.

8. A fry-up on a shovel

For when you feel unpatriotic ordering 'The Full English' so you want to Irish it up with a sense of home.

9. Sausage rolls on a bathroom tile

It just wreaks of cleanliness.

10. Scampi and chips on a bent clothes hanger

This also explains why you never have any fucking hangers.

11. Seafood platter on a coral shell

The stupid just doesn't stop.

12. Whatever this is, IN A LOG. A TREE LOG

In Greek restaurants you smash your plate on the floor when you finish. Here you chuck it on the bloody fire.

13. Champagne in a welly

Because you clearly have notions about yourself ordering bubbly, you need to be brought down a peg.

Or twelve.

14. Porridge in what looks like a chamberpot

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day.

porridge

15. Steak served on a large lump of white concrete

And also a trendy snake-skinned place mat, apparently.

16. And finally, chicken wings served in a wicker fucking suitcase

Looking for a swanky suitcase with an old time feel? Look no further! Finally a transportation system for all those times you wished you could bring your left over dinner to work and still look cool.
