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.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A large fire pushed by strong winds has engulfed at least three buildings near San Francisco’s historic Alamo Square.
A pillar of thick smoke is rising into the sky over the neighborhood more than an hour after the blaze started just before noon Thursday. The five alarm blaze brought at least 120 firefighters to battle the flames at two apartment buildings and at least one other structure.
San Francisco Fire Department Capt. Jeanne Seyler says firefighters believe that they have successfully evacuated everyone from the buildings. She says no injuries were reported. Other residents in the area are being instructed to stay where they are.
Seyler says two buildings were completely ablaze. She says firefighters expect the larger building’s roof to collapse.
The cause of the blaze is not yet known.
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.
