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.
A juror from the Michael Dunn trial told ABC’s “Nightline” Tuesday night that she believed Dunn should have been convicted of first-degree murder for shooting and killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis. “I believed he was guilty,” she said.
“We looked at a lot of evidence — and myself, it was where the gunshots were, the timing. Could he have had other options? To me, [the shooting] was unnecessary,” said Juror No. 4, identified only as Valerie.
“We all believed that there was another way out, another option,” she continued. “Roll your window up, ignore the taunting, put your car in reverse … move a parking spot over. That’s my feeling.”
When asked if she believed Dunn got away with murder, Valerie responded, “I do.”
“A life was taken,” she said. “There is no longer a Jordan Davis, and there is only one reason why that is. The boy was shot and killed for reasons that should not have happened.”

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.
