2014's fast food atrocities

Women, send your men out of the room. This post is for ladies only!
There is a lot of good advice on how to snag the guy of your dreams who right now is floating around the Internet. I am here to share it with you!
The Wall Street Journal
Amy Webb lived every red-blooded woman’s nightmare when, at 30, she still wasn’t married. Lucky for Webb, the story has a happy ending. (She gets married.)
But it wasn’t easy. After signing up with an Internet dating site and going on a string of disastrous firsts, she set out to crack the ever elusive online dating algorithm. The Date-Vinci Code!
Drawing on her background in data analysis, Webb “reverse engineered” her online profile. She created 10 male archetypes and built their online dating avatars. Then, she tricked 96 women into thinking she was these men to learn everything she could about her “competition.”
What did she learn about the perfect online dating profile?
The New York Times
Online dating has killed courtship (maybe), says the Times’ Alex Williams. There is no such thing as a date anymore, only Facebook pokes and and dirty text messages and nude Skype sessions. But you can still try to have meaningful contact with men during these difficult times.
Not only has Internet dating killed courtship, it has also killed monogamy. A double homicide! My only advice?
If Webb’s reverse-engineered dating algorithm still has you kissing frogs, there is still hope.
And if all else fails?
Sorry, but this is your future.
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.
