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.
Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton may be two of the most well-known and accomplished women of their generation, but for the latest cold open for “Saturday Night Live,” the two first ladies (played by Sasheer Zamata and Vanessa Bayer, respectively) spoke to Americans as mothers instead of politicians.
“As two of our country’s first moms, Hillary and I want to wish a happy Mother’s Day to all the moms around this wonderful nation,” says Zamata-as-Obama to begin the segment.
“Both of us have been called so many things,” Bayer-as-Clinton adds, “but it’s nice to have one day where the first thing that we’re called is ‘mom.’”
The two first ladies then proceed to talk about some of their favorite subjects, with Obama touting her work to improve America’s children’s health — and Clinton dropping not-so-subtle hint after not-so-subtle hint as to her intentions to run for president in 2016 (probably).
Seemingly inevitably, however, the address devolves into a passive-aggressive back-and-forth between the two women as they argue over which one has achieved more during their time in the public eye.
Considering one of them is a former senator and secretary of state, while the other has never technically held public office, most would probably have to give the edge to Clinton.
However, the question of whether the leading topical comedy show in America should be able to find a fresher angle than “cat fight!” when spoofing these two women, that’s up for debate.

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.
