Canton: Geez, seriously? He had to ask where Mexican Coke came from?

He apparently hadn't twigged to the fact that it was Mexican in origin, despite portions of the label being in Spanish.  It was simply listed on the shelf as "sugar coke".

Still, he was an odd one.

U.S. Taco?  Does "U.S." stand for "Ultra Sucky"?

Nefarious: So is this what kicks off the fast food wars?

The fast food wars are a perfect embodiment of the 1960s movie title:
"Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came?"

Ultra Sucky Taco? Man, that reminds me of this girl I knew, used to work the docks in Macau...

Ah, Yum, thou art full of fail (I mean, aren't you already trying this with KFC and having it go over similarly as well, which is to say, "about as well as someone's gastrointestinal tract after a mix of Meximelts and Jagermeister meets the inevitable conclusion of Bad Decision Making At 1 AM"?  Why yes, yes, you are, and now you're trying it with a place whose direct competition is two steamburger chains that all but shout out that they're catering to the 4/20 crowd).

Even moar hilarious: Given a choice between this and, well, the lovely little taqueria-movil where I have to translate the menu from Spanish for my cow-orkers and can get lengua and cabeza and even pork-tripe roughly the same hours as Taco Hell...well, let's just say the kindly folks at La Chaparrita the Mobile Taqueria will be getting my business :D

(I am actually deeply amazed that Yum Foods manages to keep a Taco Bell presence--much less a Taco Bell international headquarters--within literal walking distance of a part of Louisville that may have the highest population of "Spanish required, things have diversified to the point we have Guatemalan and Salvadorean variations as well as the usual regional Mexican specialties, 'sí, tenemos tacos de lengua, y ellos son deliciosos' not-exactly-catering-to-the-gringos set" taquerias, dulcerias, carnicerias, and supermercados in the state if not the multistate region.  Seriously, I do NOT see how Taco Hell stays in business when there are literally mobile taquerias running at the same hours, with cheaper and better food.  The only way I think they stay in business is for folks not wanting sliders or Steak & Shake at 3am or potentially catering to poor, benighted folks who have the fear of the Mexi-Coke because OMFG IT'S MEXICAN; oddly enough, those same people also tend to have Teh Fear of the part of town I grew up in that is now functionally Guadalajarita :D)

/does not at all fear the places where lengua tacos are served openly and ordering in Spanish is a requirement and there isn't even something to POINT at :D
//these tend to have the best food :9
///and despite being from a taco truck, a nice lengua taco or carnitas taco is less likely to be a Weapon of Ass Destruction than an offering from T-Hell at 3AM
