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.
In what’s being billed as a “hunting fail,” a young fawn walked right up to a group of men in the middle of target practice and proceeded to lick one of the shooter’s guns.
According to the video’s description, the deer, named Dinner, was raised by a rehabilitation specialist after its mother was killed by a car, and was only recently returned to the wild.
If you’d like, you can call it a courageous anti-gun statement from a defiant four-legged activist. Or a beautiful example of the potential for humans and animals to form meaningful bonds. Or a bad omen for Dinner’s future (as if the name weren’t enough).
Either way, the interaction wasn’t the kind of thing you see every day:

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.
