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.
If you think gleefully picketing the funerals of dead soldiers with posters declaring “GOD HATES FAGS” is bewildering behavior, you should see what mischief the Westboro Baptist Church gets up to on social media. When distilled into six-second vines, the extremist sect has something like a sense of humor, at least while off-duty.
Here, for example, is a hilarious and adorable recreation of the 2004 tsunami that killed a quarter of a million people.
A look behind the scenes at A&E’s controversial Duck Dynasty:
They really love to sing.
But not as much as they love their signs.
In fact, the posters seem to have minds of their own.
At the end of the day, though, it’s all about the kids.
And Miley Cyrus, whom God apparently doesn’t hate yet.
I don’t know about you all, but I’ve never felt closer to salvation.
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.
