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.
Hillary Clinton on Thursday addressed an audience at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting in Las Vegas, but was interrupted when as an as-yet-unnamed woman in the crowd threw a shoe at her. The black and orange athletic shoe flew by her head, narrowly missing the former secretary of state and likely presidential contender.
“Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?” Clinton joked to the crowd after the incident. “My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn’t play softball like I did.”
The woman who threw the shoe was taken into federal custody. According to the Associated Press, she hasn’t said why she threw the shoe.
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.
