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.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says it will become harder to help people who believe their voting rights have been violated if the Supreme Court strikes down a key part of a voting rights law.
The court is set to hear arguments Wednesday. It’s a challenge to a section of the law requiring states and local governments with a history of racial discrimination to get Justice Department approval before making changes that affect elections.
The appeal from Shelby County, Ala., argues that places covered by the law have made such progress that Washington oversight is unnecessary.
Defenders of the law say it’s still needed.
Obama said Friday that ending federal oversight would stop people from challenging potential obstacles to voting before they are put in place.
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.
