2014's fast food atrocities
Burger King's black cheeseburger: Made with squid ink and bamboo charcoal, arguably a symbol of meat's destructive effect on the planet. Only available in Japan.
When we discontinued the Fix, one complaint from readers was the most common: They missed the daily roster of TV talk-show guests. So I said we’d bring it back in another form. Today we rolled out TV Daily, which will make recommendations for can’t-miss television every day, and also bring you the day’s talk-show schedule.
We’ll be rolling out more culture features soon, along with two expanded politics sites and enhanced science and environment coverage. We’re beefing up Video Dog as promised; look for more in the weeks to come.
And have no fear: Heather Havrilesky will continue to do “I Like to Watch” on the weekends as well.
Let us know what you think.

Domino's Specialty Chicken: It's like regular pizza, except instead of a crust, there's fried chicken. The company's marketing officer calls it "one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had” -- brain power put to good use.
KFC'S ZINGER DOUBLE DOWN KING: A sandwich made by adding a burger patty to the infamous chicken-instead-of-buns creation can only be described using all caps. NO BUN ALL MEAT. Only available in South Korea.
Taco Bell's Waffle Taco: It took two years for Taco Bell to develop this waffle folded in the shape of a taco, the stand-out star of its new breakfast menu.
Krispy Kreme Triple Cheeseburger: Only attendees at the San Diego County Fair were given the opportunity to taste the official version of this donut-hamburger-heart attack combo. The rest of America has reasonable odds of not dropping dead tomorrow.
Taco Bell's Quesarito: A burrito wrapped in a quesadilla inside an enigma. Quarantined to one store in Oklahoma City.
