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.
What to do?
One Danish travel agency has come up with a cheeky idea. They have launched a campaign called “Do it for Denmark” — “it” being it — which encourages Danish couples to go on vacation, where they are more likely to have sex and conceive a baby, thus doing their part to save their country from the brink of geriatric destruction.
The whole thing is pretty hilarious and charming, not to mention informative.
We learn that Danes have way more sex when they are on vacation than they do in their everyday lives — 46 percent more sex, to be exact, and we learn that 10 percent of all Danish children are conceived on holiday.
We hear from a sex therapist who says traveling together helps keep the spark alive in a relationship.
And if you’re not swayed by stats, expert advice or the call of duty, Spies travel agency is offering an “ovulation discount” if you book your trip through them. If you have sex on the trip and can prove you conceived a child, you win three years worth of baby stuff and a child-friendly vacation. How’s that for incentive?
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.
