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.
“Breakfast in America” is a 1979 record by the British rock group Supertramp. Its cover artwork features a smiling waitress who is standing in for the Statue of Liberty.* Behind her stands the New York City skyline, including the twin towers. It’s weird.
According to the latest theory from the 9/11 truther community, however, Supertramp’s album cover was never just a jokey little piece of absurdist art. What was it instead? A prophecy of doom.
Try to follow us on this one, because as one might suspect from a new 9/11 truth theory provided today (some 10-plus years after the attacks), things get a bit complicated.
As cataloged by the British tabloid the Daily Mirror, Eve’s “cryptic” explanation of her theory is as follows:
But for those who remained less than totally convinced, Eve was willing to go one step further, reversing the perspective of the album cover in such a way that the letters U and P from Supertramp’s name look (kinda-sorta) like 9/11:
So, yeah, there you have it. The case, as best as Eve can make it, that Supertramp … knew 9/11 was coming? Or that whoever picked the album cover for Supertramp knew 9/11 was coming? Questions remain — but the search for knowledge continues.
*Readers noted that rather than riding the wing of the plane, as this post said initially, the woman featured on the cover of “Breakfast in America” is supposed to be replacing the Statue of Liberty. This makes (slightly) more sense, so I’ve updated the post.
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.
