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.
The commentator fired by National Public Radio in October for his remarks about Muslims has a deal to write two books.
Crown Publishers announced Tuesday the first book by Juan Williams will “focus on free speech and the growing difficulty in America of speaking out on sensitive topics.”
Williams was let go by NPR after saying on the Fox News Channel he gets nervous when he sees on a plane people with clothing that identifies them as Muslim.
NPR said his remarks violated its standards of not having on-air personnel giving opinions. Williams said he was hurt by the suggestion he’s a bigot.
Williams’ first book is due this summer. It’s currently untitled.
Crown is an imprint of Random House Inc.
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.
