A list published yesterday on Maxim.com of 8 fast food combos the world needs seems more like a list of items auditioning for thisiswhyyourefat than actual food products any rational person would ever consume. We’re fans of excessive eating as much as the next person (hell, we can’t go to the fair without powering through an elephant ear and some curly fries) but some of these proposed combinations are downright obscene. Hodge-podgy blends like “The Chocolate McGriddle Crunch Cake” which is “a McDonalds sausage, egg, and cheese McGriddle sandwiched between two Dominos Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes” isn’t so much inventive as it is depressing to look at.


​With an increasing number of items like this popping up all over the internet, it’s easy to get discouraged and imagine a world where everyone begins morphing into the shapeless blobs featured on shows like Half Ton Teen. However, since assembling most of these items requires stopping at a minimum of two different fast-food places, we’re assuming the inadvertent exercise of standing in two totally different lines or remaining upright long enough to go through a couple different drive-thrus is the best argument for why the world needs these new combos.

Plus, none of them are any worse than the KFC Double Down Chicken Sandwich.
