Do the needful: Diogenes: Three Crooked Squirrels: From the article, it doesn't look like he was fired.  That is most likely a product of how hard it is to find someone qualified enough to meet the culinary demands of the eatery.


FTFA:   Taco Bell will see incidents like this repeat if it doesn't change its hiring practices, says Napoletano. "You need to hire people who hold as much integrity for your brand as you do," she says.

Not to excuse the kid, but what level of integrity can you expect with that brand?  We're not talking Ruth's Chris here.

Since you brought it up, what exactly is a Chris, and what's so special about Ruths?

A 'Chris' is a type of ceremonial knife, used mostly in far-eastern fertility rituals which involve live sacrifice of domesticated animals.  Ruth was the chef who imported these rituals for use in her avante-garde steak restaurants, which are famous for the blood orgies in which steers are eviscerated, butchered and expertly grilled for your dining pleasure.  The drum circle, the screams of the dying animals and religious chants from the shaman/maître d' are intended to enhance the dining experience.  I personally feel they use too much salt in most of their recipes, though.

RoyHobbs22: Smackledorfer: Kids do dumb shiat, and unless none of them are involved in any portion of your feeding process, you are probably eating some nasty shiat from time to time.  Get over it.

/doesn't mean don't fire the guy

very true, eating out anywhere is a gamble.  spitting on burgers, picking fries off the dirty floor, slicing the mold off rotting cheese, jacking off into pizza dough.  Learn how to cook people!

I would learn how to cook people, but check me if I'm wrong here, won't they lock me up and throw away the key?

ShaggyMarrs: FTFA: "...whether it's pudding or tacos."

What Taco Bell sells pudding?

They fill their tacos with a pudding-like substance.

"Taco licker goes down" would have been a better headline.  Just saying.

The My Little Pony Killer: "It's not a brand problem - it's a brand practices problem," says Erika Napoletano, a brand strategy consultant. "If you hire people who treat your brand as disposable, that's the kind of PR you'll get."

It's more like if you hire people who YOU TREAT AS DISPOSABLE (and you pay them as such) then you absolutely cannot be surprised when this is the end result.

/Yum as a whole sucks ass

riverwalk barfly: If you can buy a burrito made with beans, cheese,lettuce, beef, crushed nacho chips wrapped in a tortilla for $1 - WTF do you expect?

I'd be dubious of that if it came off a food truck with Mexican plates and a real live Mexican in the window.

I got Taco Bell yesterday after learning about this little snafu.

Any media attention is a good promotion, imo. People are now going to Ann's Eatery in droves just to see if it is as volatile as people claim.

But in other news, I think I'm going to open a restaurant Taco Bell, in homage to Demolition Man.

I didn't find the photo nearly as offensive as what they fill the tacos with and pass off as beef.
