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.
New York police are looking for an art thief who is unusually bold–or unusually stupid, depending on your perspective. He walked into a gallery in the middle of the day, took a $150,000 painting right off the wall while a security guard was in the building, put the painting in his bag and then walked out, NY1 reported. Unfortunately for him, his shameless heist was caught on video, although police still haven’t made an arrest.
The man had pretended to be a customer at the Venus Over Manhattan Art Gallery. The man first asked a security guard if he could take a photograph of a painting that was on display, a 1949 work by Salvador Dali. The guard said he could as long as he didn’t use flash. The guard then got distracted and stepped away. When guard wasn’t looking, the man removed the Dali painting from the wall, the New York Daily News reported.
The Venus Over Manhattan Art Gallery has only been open since May and is owned by famous art dealer Adam Lindemann, the New York Post reported. “We went inside to see the show, and we were wondering where the Salvador Dali painting was,” a gallery visitor told the Post. “It’s a small painting, but how did he just put in his bag and walk out like that?” Watch a video of the heist below:
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.
