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.
According to a report from ThinkProgress, the police chief of George Zimmerman’s Florida town responded to a series of emails sent to the Lake Mary police department website by agreeing with the email sender’s statement that Zimmerman is a “ticking time bomb” and “another Aurora, Sandy Hook waiting to happen.”
According to documents provided by ThinkProgress, after defending police conduct during the Monday incident involving Zimmerman and his estranged wife, Shellie, Police Chief Steve Bracknell responded to Santiago Rodriguez’s email by stating: ”Your reference to Sandy Hook ……. I agree.”
In a follow-up email, Blacknell wrote that, “again, on a personal note,” he agreed with Santiago’s comments calling Zimmerman a “ticking time bomb.”
In a comment on the email, Blacknell said he he did not really agree with Santiago’s statement regarding Sandy Hook and was “referring to the fact that [Zimmerman] seems to be involved in incidents” involving firearms.

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.
