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.
BOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) say a remark he made to his sister during a prison visit was meant to be funny and wasn’t incriminating, as prosecutors have suggested.
In court documents filed Wednesday, Tsarnaev’s lawyers responded to a claim by prosecutors that Tsarnaev made a remark “to his detriment.”
Neither side has revealed what Tsarnaev said. An FBI agent who was in the room because of special prison restrictions placed on Tsarnaev overheard it.
Tsarnaev’s lawyers say the comment was “jocular” or “gently mocking” toward the security concerns and prison restrictions. They say it didn’t relate to the charges against him.
Tsarnaev faces the possibility of the death penalty in the April 15 bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
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.
