   Taco Bell soon to introduce tantalizing new menu items, all designed for the ever evolving American palate. "Dubbed "loaded grillers," the savory snacks will essentially be nachos, chicken or a loaded baked potato, all wrapped in a tortilla"

Eventually they'll just drop the pretense and serve buckets o' slop. You just go sit at your trough and they bring a bucket and throw it in.

This is a good step, but why stop there? Why not cultivate the advances in stuffed crust pizza technology to pioneer a hollow, flavored tortilla? The tortilla itself tastes like nachos, chicken, and potatoes, and inside its hollow interior can be squirted a flavored paste of nachos, chicken, and potatoes.Then, the flavored, stuffed tortilla is wrapped around actual nachos, chicken, and potatoes and served on a bed of nachos, chicken, and potatoes. That's what I'm waiting for.

They probably meant "A chicken".

I believe they already serve a small version of that at KFC.

Of all the fast food restaurants, they have the most room to grow. All they have to do is wrap any and every good item in a tortilla or taco shell and, Voila! a new Mexican dish! I am waiting for them to start serving Mexican burgers and fries.

I was a part of the team that in a drunken haze invented the potato chip fajita in my dorm room. Drunk hungry and with nothing in the room to eat but tortillas, chips and tabasco sauce and history was made.

Is this because the only vegetable Americans will eat is a potato?

Also, how can this be good? And also, do Americans realize that you can buy a 5 lb sack of potatoes for $1 (that is the sale price at my store) and tortillas at prb 8 for $1 and make these in the microwave in 5 minutes?

Holy shiat, why is this a big deal? I mean, isn't a baked potato about the least obnoxious thing you could eat at a fast food restaurant? And tortillas are so fattening or something? This isn't like a sandwich bun made of fried chicken. Why can't we try new things?

Speaking of things that everyone says are horrible but are in fact awesome, when does the McRib come back? And have they figured out a way to serve it inside of a Dorito yet?

Imma open a restaurant called "the Trough" because fark it, Americans don't' give a fark. they'll shovel anything into their gaping maws. As long as it's greasy and salty and hot, they'll suck it down and waddle away with empty wallets. I'll server various versions of slop in bowls. maybe put a high fructose corn syrup type soda fountain on each table. Then charge by the gallon as they serve themselves. Hose the place out each night and laugh all the way to the bank. If People want to be fat, disgusting pigs, I may as well make a profit off of them.

I don't remember the comedian (maybe gaffigan), but one had a skit that went something like this:

I used to work at a Mexican restaurant, and people would always ask what a menu item is. "Oh, a flauta? What is that?" It's a tortilla with meat, vegetables, and cheese. The thing about Mexican restaurants is, no matter what item of food you're looking at, the answer is always the same. It's a tortilla with meat, vegetables and cheese.

Thanks for helping to remind me why I detest all Gawker Media sites.

Also, I really don't understand why people hate on Taco Bell so much, having worked there for many years when I was in school.

You are correct, it is Gaffigan.

This is the entire impulse behind the fast-food industry. However, you'll have to pay tribute to St. Ronald on the fourth of every month.

Hey now, potatoes originated in South/Central America and were only brought to Europe when those damn Spaniards came along. The Irish are just riding coattails and are lucky they even know what a potato is.
