Makes sense...after all the Big Mac was conceived after a McDonald's franchisee had sex with a drifter with a third buttock, or "bun" as the kids say, and Taco Bell was created by the CIA in an attempt to weaponize feces.

I love how that Onion article is basically Naomi Klein's No Logo in 800 words.

Doritos are horrible, and rancid Dorito breath makes me gag. There are plenty of snack foods I don't like much ("BBQ" flavored anything) but Doritos are the only thing I find revolting. Not sure what the magic ingredient is, but nothing else makes me react this way.

The potato chip was created under similar conditions in 1853.  A temperamental chef was in a snit
because a customer said his French fries were too thick (they had those in 1853?), so the chef
cut them as thin as possible, fried them so long they were super-crisp...and the customer loved
them! So much so that the chef spent literally the rest of his life making them.  (I guess you really
can't eat just one.)

The only Doritos flavor I ever liked was the plain "toasted corn" variety, which Frito-Lay doesn't
seem too interested in reviving.  "Taco" is passable, but a bit spicy.  Every other flavor is
caca.

Cool Ranch always makes me gag the smell is awful. I think one of the reasons I hate them so much is because one of my college roomates that had the worst smelling feet ever would eat them and the feet Cool Ranch smell would mix and be ungodly.

Doritos are the greatest chip ever invented. Praise the Dorito, and give me a coke.

Dude - if having sex made people smarter, or better journaliosts, we'd be living in a world full of H.L. Menckens.

I can't be the only one who used to get the original Doritos at Casa de Fritos? Am I that old? Why yes, that was my first experience with Mexican food.

That was when the Frontierland shooting range still used real pellet guns.

They were, until about the mid-80s when they started coating them with nearly radioactive-looking levels of orange "cheese".

If anyone who's been to Australia has ever had C-C's brand Nacho Cheese chips, this is what Doritos tasted like 30 years ago. Yum.

CSB:

My neighbors were having lunch by the pool one day, and threw a partially empty bag of nacho Doritos into the trash and left.  They came back to find their dog in the pool dead with the Doritos bag on its head.  It tried to get the crumbs, couldn't get its head out, and fell into the pool and drowned.

On second thought, that's not so cool.
