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.
Don’t ink “Argo” into your Oscars pool yet.
The last, late momentum could be with “Silver Linings Playbook.”
Director David O. Russell’s film cleaned up at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, the last ceremony before tonight’s Academy Awards.
It won Independent Spirit Awards for best film, director, screenplay and actress for Jennifer Lawrence.
“The last time I held one of these was 19 years ago for best screenplay and best first feature [for 'Spanking the Monkey'] and my son was 1 year old,” Russell said, accepting his award for best director. “Matthew’s here today and he gave me this movie.”
Russell’s son has bipolar disorder. In the film — up for eight Oscars — Bradley Cooper’s character wrestles with the illness.
John Hawkes won best actor for “The Sessions.” His co-star Helen Hunt took best supporting actress. Best supporting actor went to Matthew McConaughey for “Magic Mike.”
“Amour” was named best foreign film.

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.
