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.
Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman’s court fight is getting more expensive by the day — literally.
On Wednesday, a court ruled that Coleman owes $94,783.15 in court costs to his opponent, Democrat Al Franken. The decision was actually a partial loss for both men — Franken had sought $161,00. But it will cost more for Coleman, and not just because of that $95,000.
One thing the Coleman camp had asked for is that the court stay the charges until the Minnesota Supreme Court, which is currently considering the case, weighs in. But instead, the court wants the money paid immediately, something a Coleman spokesman says isn’t going to happen. That means the former senator will be charged interest for every day the payment is late.

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.
