It is time for the most natural of partners to unite once again: restaurants and plates.

If you're wondering when they ever parted ways, just pop into a hipster dining establishment and get ready to walk out horrified, confused and exhausted.

Enjoy your dessert off the pavement when it inevitably falls off this doomed construction.

Did a 5-year old trying to hide the fact they've dropped their ice lolly invent this?
