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.
It would appear that this is the week when the mainstream media busts out all the Chris Christie fat jokes it’s been holding back for so long. First there was the Time cover, which wasn’t very funny. And now Chris Matthews wants in on the act.
Speaking on a panel, Matthews tried to make a funny midway through the panel host Tom McGrath’s question on Christie’s 2016 chances.
“Two days after Election Day, Chris Christie has crushed his opponent. Is he gonna be the Republican—” McGrath said.
“The one I feel for is his wife,” Matthews interjected, to audience laughter.
“Why’s that?” McGrath asked in response.
“Did you just say, ‘crush?’” Matthews responded. “I mean, use your imagination.”
And then everyone laughed because, ha ha, fat jokes.
Listen to Matthews’ joke below, via Newsbusters:
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.
