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. Best/worst casting of the day: The kids of “Jersey Shore” will be making a cameo in the new “Three Stooges” film, but not as Mo, Larry or Curly. What sort of devilry is this?
2. Anti-anti drug poster of the day: Whoever made this Swedish anti-drug ad featuring a haggard Amy Winehouse should go to Bad Taste Jail.
3. Bros before other bros of the day: Tim Gunn recounts how he dumped his last boyfriend because he was a flight attendant and a friend told him that would be “such a cliché.”
4. Urkel of the day: Jaleel White sheds his cheese-loving nerd persona to play Cee Lo Green in the official video for “Cry Baby.”
5. Back story of the day: In Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” Catwoman will be a stripper/pickpocket with a history of abuse. Wait … how are there still pickpockets in Gotham?
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.
