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.
Rumors that Karl Rove would be joining Fox News as a contributor just in time for Super Tuesday were being bandied around a bit on the Internet last week. Since the rumors looked less than official at the time, we were holding off on reporting them until we heard something definitive back, and a call to a Fox News spokeswoman went unreturned.
Over at Think Progress today, though, they’ve got the proverbial smoking gun showing that it’s now official: A Fox News advertisement proclaiming Rove “knows it all like no one else,” and announcing that he’s joining the “Fox political team.”

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.
