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.
Martha Stewart, a culinary wizard who is not quite as skilled with a camera, hit Reddit on Thursday to promote her PBS show, “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School.” The AMA thread is fairly milquetoast until someone asked, “Do you have any good sex tips?”
To the Internet’s delight, Stewart responded:
Redditor aliebert2: “Do you have any good sex tips?”
Stewart: Always take a bath before and after.
Reddito RoswellSpaceman: Do it DURING a bath. Kills two birds with one stone.
Stewart: That’s good too, and don’t forget to brush your teeth.
There you have it: Martha Stewart, giving Dr. Ruth a run for her money. Stewart, clearly a woman of the people, also admitted that if she had a day without any commitments, she’d “watch the entire 13 hours of a new season of House of Cards.”
And when asked, “What’s it like being friends with Snoop Dogg?” Stewart lamented, “I wish I were closer friends with Snoop Dogg.”

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.
