It will be hard to top the absurd items being offered at Turner Field this season. While stands in recent years have tried to elevate junk food with nachos "on a stick" and pizza-garnished Bloody Marys, the home of the Atlanta Braves will stay as lowest-common-denominator as possible this year. The most clearly outrageous food of the bunch is the so-called "Punisher," a sandwich topped with skewered bacon that uses Monster Energy for a barbecue glaze, so you'll at least be cranked when the cardiac arrest begins:

Next, there's a foot-long pretzel-bun chili dog covered in beer cheese, popcorn, fries, jalapeños, a Coke version of barbecue sauce, and tortilla chips:
Then there's this thing, which needs no explanation beyond its name: the "burgerizza."

Two honorable mentions go out to a tater-tot waffle atrocity, and the world's second-laziest concession after a bag of chips: a bag of chips dumped out so chili can be plopped on:

The Braves are supposed to have an abysmal 2016 season, so maybe this is an attempt to give fans a good distraction.
