Freaks, Geeks, and Taco Bell

Now and then we watch videos at work during lunch. We’re in the Freaks and Geeks series right now. Also, some of us went to Taco Bell today.

I got about $3 worth of stuff off of the value menu. It’s pretty good – considering. I think that the bell should be more honest and simply list their entres by the order of their ingredients, bottom to top:
1) tortilla, beans, meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato
2) tortilla, meat, beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato
3) tortilla, beans, cheese, meat, tomato, lettuce
and so-on

Seriously, I’m expecting a new commercial and mascott to do something like this:

Hey, hey, hey!
There’s something totally new from Taco Bell!
Now we’ve put the lettuce and tomato under the beans and meat, but on top of the cheese to create a completely new taste sensation! It’s seriously so much better than the tomato under the cheese thing we tried last month or last year’s disasterous beans, beans, beans, lettuce and cheese! Don’t miss it! Get down to your local Taco Bell today and get your cheese, tomato, lettuce, beans and meat, all on a tortilla! And don’t forget a side order of tortillas and cheese!

It’s no “On the Road” by Kerouac mind you, but it would be so much more honest.

maybe it’s just me.

    well. i used to like taco bell till i found the special ingredient one day in a beef taco.

    it was the same color as the meat, same texture, but wrong shape.

    never went back to that one. but i’m a fan of the chicken gordita.

  2. ok… I give.
    What was the “special ingredient?”
