Fork in the Road Presents: Futuristic Fast Food Mash-Ups
One of the worst aspects of the Age of Bloomberg has been the inundation of the city with nationally franchised fast food restaurants, so that now you can find McDonald's, KFC, Taco Bell, Dunkin' Donuts, Burger King, Jamba Juice, Chipotle Grill, and a dozen other chains in nearly every business district in the city, offering boring and repetitive menu choices of much lower quality and interest than our own homegrown fast food like pizza, hot dogs, and pastrami sandwiches. In the bizarro world of the future, these will constitute our only dining options, and the food will be shipped to the individual restaurants in big pipes that run under the streets from a central commissary that serves all chains.
Of course, accidents are inevitable, as, say, the stream of McDonald's components ruptures and becomes muddled with KFC fixin's. We, the consumers will be exposed to mutant forms of fast food so horrifying that we almost can't bear to describe them. The pictures that follow should help.
