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.
A poll shows many New Yorkers don’t want Gov. David Paterson to quit and don’t want state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to investigate the scandal that could sink him.
The Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday finds that 61 percent of voters don’t want Paterson to resign. Cuomo is investigating whether he or staff members tried to persuade a woman to drop a domestic violence complaint against a top aide.
The poll showed even most women don’t want Paterson to quit.
Sixty-one percent of voters prefer an investigation by an independent prosecutor rather than Cuomo, a Democrat expected to run for governor. Paterson dropped his campaign for a full term last week under pressure.
Quinnipiac questioned 1,237 registered voters Monday and Tuesday. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.
On the Net:
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.
