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.
Kenyan women led a march through Nairobi on Thursday to protest police inaction following the alleged gang rape of a 16-year-old girl. The victim, who is being referred to by the pseudonym “Liz” in local media, identified three of the six suspects, who were ordered to cut grass at a police station as punishment and then let go.
Demonstrators rallied at the police chief’s office, calling for the arrest of the suspects, chanting “justice for Liz.”
More from CNN:
Word of the attack got out in October — three months later — when one of [the victim's] doctors, outraged by the incident, called a journalist at the Daily Nation newspaper. The newspaper broke the story and is spearheading a fundraiser to pay for her medical bills.
By then, Liz had been hospitalized several times [for injuries sustained during the assault] and had to use a wheelchair. She also suffered from a condition that makes her unable to control her bowels as a result of the rape, the Coalition on Violence Against Women said in a statement.
She’s been in and out of the hospital since June. Her mother, a small-scale farmer, leased her land to make extra money to send her to a bigger hospital in the nearby major city of Kakamega, according to [Milanoi] Koiyiet [a representative for Kenya's Coalition on Violence Against Women, which is providing the teen with legal assistance].
Capital News interviewed Nebila Abdulmelik from the African Women’s Development and Communication Network, who was among the protestors, about what is being done to hold law enforcement accountable and ensure action is taken against the alleged rapists:
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.
