Arby's new $10 "Meat Mountain" will destroy us all (Credit: Arby's/Facebook)

As savvy consumers know, there’s no shortage of menu items out there guaranteed to kill you more or less as soon as you order them. And yet for some, that still isn’t enough, which is how we ended up with the “Meat Mountain.”

Arby’s, as the Washington Post recounts, came up with this monstrosity as a poster illustrating its various meat options. It was not supposed to be a real-life food offering that people could order. And yet order it, they did.  So the fast food chain just decided to go for it. You won’t find the Meat Mountain on menus, but the store’s been offering it to those who know to ask for it (please, don’t).

The full stack, which fits between two buns but not in the store’s standard packaging, includes the following:

2 chicken tenders

1.5 oz. of roast turkey

1.5 oz. of ham

1 slice of Swiss cheese

1.5 oz. of corned beef

1.5 oz. brisket

1.5 oz. of Angus steak

1 slice of cheddar cheese

1.5 oz. roast beef

3 half-strips of bacon
