Britain's 2000AD is known for cutting its scifi with satire, but occasionally even the Galaxy's Greatest Comic can go too far. Such was the case with four episodes of Judge Dredd in 1978, which set out to prove just how dangerous fast food could be, and ended up demonstrating that it's not a good idea to mess with copyrights of international corporations if you're looking to avoid lawyers writing nasty letters. Who knew that Ronald McDonald could be so disagreeable?

Swiss-based company Katadyn began in 1926 when its founder (Professor Georg Alexander Krause) found a way of harnessing the disinfectant qualities of silver and began his pioneering work in portable water purification units. The 80 year old company’s core business is still mobile water sterilization and desalination equipment but over the last decade it has used its dominant global market share and distribution to diversify into a range of other products servicing the special requirements of adventure travelers, campers and the marine industry. Given that its products will be found in the kit of any international relief organization, military Special Opps unit or extreme adventure athlete, it is somewhat of an irony that this company should produce the world’s first cheeseburger in a can.
