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.
Slowly but surely, giraffes are taking over Facebook.
If you’ve been around the website for the past couple days, you may have noticed that more people have started changing their profile pictures to one of the animal kingdom’s tallest mammal. They’re not having an identity crisis (that we know of) and it’s not an elaborate Halloween costume.
They’re all participating in one giant riddle. And they just lost.
The rules are rather simple. Strugnell posts a riddle that changes weekly, and if you think you know the answer, message him privately.
Here is the riddle: 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors, It’s your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?
If you get the riddle right, congratulations! You are a human. If you get it wrong, you now have to change your profile picture to a giraffe for the next three days and Strugnell will post your name to Facebook and YouTube.
With more people turning into giraffes than not, people are starting to cry foul on the riddle’s logic. But Strugnell is begging the commenters not to spoil the answer, and there’s a vague enough hint to get you started.
Go ahead and give it a try, but remember, your profile picture is on the line.
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.
