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.
Abercrombie & Fitch has yet to bow to pressure from consumers to change its policy against selling clothing larger than a size 10, but it took barely any time at all for the retailer to pull a T-shirt from the shelves that Taylor Swift fans found offensive.
The garment in question read “#More boyfriends than T. S.,” which was interpreted as a dig at the pop star, which made fans very, very angry.
And they channeled that anger into a unified front of teen consumer outrage, inundating the retailer’s public relations line with calls of complaint and eventually prompting a representative to create the following automated response: “Thank you for calling Abercrombie & Fitch public relations. If you are calling regarding the Taylor Swift t-shirt, please note this is no longer available.”
Point goes to the “Swifties.” (The Swift hand of justice, Abercrombie got Swiftboated, etc.)
Watch one fan show Abercrombie what happens when you step on Swift 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.
