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.
1. Toe wrestling, the wave of the future (Warning: Video automatically plays)
This is not a joke, people. Did you see this guy Alan “Nasty” Nash, one of the world’s premier toe wrestlers? Because that dude looks like a blacksmith from a medieval war movie and I bet his toes are not playing around.
2. Harry and Ron, all grown up
I expect we’ll be seeing a bunch of these sorts of videos popping up this week with “The Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ coming out, but here’s your first “‘Harry Potter’ tykes through the years” compilation.
3. The extreme awfulness of Adam Sandler as a woman in “Jack and Jill”
You know, whenever the phrase “But Eddie Murphy got to do it!” enters into a studio pitch, it’s probably time to shut it down.
4. Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit:
On Saturday, the Yankees captain slammed a home run against Tampa … which technically also counts as the 3,000th hit he’s scored in his professional career. A fan returned the ball (which could have been worth $250K), and will receive a bunch of tickets and jerseys in return.
5. When mascots attack
Sure, team rivalries can get a little heated, but when a banana attacks a gorilla off the playing field, that’s just pure comedy gold.
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.
