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.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, former First Lady Betty Ford and horse racing’s leading female jockey, Julie Krone, are among this year’s inductees into the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
Nine women will be inducted at an Oct. 12 ceremony in Seneca Falls. The western New York village is where the first known women’s rights convention was held.
Pelosi is being recognized for 25 years in politics and for being the nation’s first female House speaker. Ford, who died in 2011, is cited for raising awareness of addiction.
The inductees also include: Ina May Gaskin, known as the “mother of authentic midwifery;” feminist Kate Millett; Mother Mary Joseph Rogers, who founded Maryknoll Sisters; education activist Bernice Resnick Sandler; research economist Anna Jacobson Schwartz; and 19th century educator Emma Hart Willard.
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.
