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.
Some conservatives are misplacing their anger at the Supreme Court’s ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act, which denied benefits to legally married same-sex couples, is unconstitutional.
The Twitter account for SCOTUSblog, a site run by a group of law professors and lawyers and sponsored by Bloomberg Law, has been taking some of the heat and having fun with it:
You realize we have life tenure, right? RT @Randall701: @SCOTUSblog haven’t you bastards finished f***ing up the world yet? :)— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) June 27, 2013
The Supreme Court doesn’t have an official presence on Twitter, but perhaps those angry at SCOTUS can commiserate with parody Antonin Scalia.

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.
