Some people dream of a perfect, square-cut wedding ring.

Others just want a simple, solitaire setting, or perhaps a halo cut.

For any couple that's truly in love, however, it doesn't matter how the diamond looks, as long as it's made out of a Burger King Whopper.

Wait, what?


In a new German advertisement, the fast-food company helped out LGBTQ couple, Dima and Alvar, who are from an unnamed Eastern European country that doesn't allow gay marriage.

In honor of Pride month, Burger King flew the pair to Germany, where gay marriage is legal, and presented them with a wedding ring made from the ashes of a severely scorched Whopper.

BURGER KING | Whopper Diamond youtu.be

Klaus Schmäing, Director of Marketing of Burger King Germany, wants it known that Burger King is on the right side of history:

"Guests can choose their Whopper in any country, and together with Dima and Alvar, we want to show that everyone should have the freedom to make their own decisions, especially in love."

And the King didn't stop there!

The company will also be sponsoring Germany's version of Pride, Christopher Street Day on July 7!

Twitter couldn't help but give Burger King some props for paying for the couple's entire wedding.

Twitter felt a little strange about getting teary over a burger commercial.


Though many companies take advantage of Pride month to try and increase their sales, most people agreed Burger King's spot went the extra mile to show they actually cared.


There's no shame in crying through your burger.

It's also worth noting that Burger King is now capable of real world magic?

Congrats, Dima and Alvar!

May your days be filled with happiness and love!

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
