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.
Longtime House Democrat Charlie Rangel declared victory on Tuesday night, claiming that he had defeated New York state Sen. Adriano Espaillat in the Democratic Party primary for the 13th Congressional District, reports CBS New York.
At the beginning of a lengthy speech that eventually segued into a declaration of victory, the 84-year-old congressman explained to supporters that he was joining them with only 70 percent of precincts reporting because he wanted to “sweat this one out together” with them.
After more than half-an-hour of unscripted speech, Rangel called on Rep. Gregory Meeks to declare Rangel the winner.
For his part, Espaillat told his supporters that results “were too close to call.” He soon thereafter left his campaign headquarters without further announcement.
Rangel previously defeated Espaillat in a Democratic Party primary battle, besting the state senator in 2012 by less than 2,000 votes.
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.
