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.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted on Tuesday to smoking crack in his past, apologizing and saying he did it while in one of his “drunken stupors,” according to a report from CTV News.
“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. But I am not an addict,” Ford told a group of reporters at Toronto City Hall. Ford said it was about a year since he had smoked crack.
“I’ve made mistakes,” Ford said. “All I can do now is apologize and move on.”
The bombshell revelation comes days after Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said police had recovered a video that’s been reported in the media as showing the mayor smoking from a crack pipe.
Ford said there were a “couple of isolated incidents” when he’s been in a “drunken stupor.”
He called on Blair, once again, to release the video.
“I don’t’ even recall there being a tape and a video. So I want to see the state that I was in. I don’t know what else I can say.”
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.
