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.
Another round of potentially severe weather is firing up in Illinois and Indiana, as officials deal with the aftermath of storms that crashed through the Midwest overnight.
Flash flood warnings are posted in central Indiana following two days of heavy thunderstorms. Water from a retention lake has overflowed an earthen dam west of Indianapolis. Firefighters have rescued at least three people trapped by rising water.
In southern Wisconsin, an apparent tornado damaged or destroyed dozens of homes in Eagle, where the fire chief is warning people to stay away because of live wires on the ground. Officials say all residents are accounted for after a warning siren failed before the storm hit.
In central Illinois, heavy rains created flash floods while witnesses reported tornadoes near the Indiana border.
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.
