Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Taco Bell Wrapper Mistaken for Bomb!

Categories: Our Taco Hells

We live in jittery times nowadays, where any suspicious package is automatically assumed to be a bomb. But there's caution, and then there's stupidity, and that's what happened last week in Fair Oaks, California, where an errant Taco Bell wrapper caused a school lockdown and a bomb squad mission that found a mysterious ball of duct tape covered around...Taco Bell wrappers.


Tale of the tape--and, yes, the pun was intended:

Officials at Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, Calif. called in the bomb squad on Tuesday.

Del Campo -- a part of the San Juan Unified School District -- went on "Shelter in Place" status while a suspicious package was investigated, News10 reports.

The package turned out to contain one of Yum! Brands' Taco Bell wrappers covered in duct tape. That became clear after the Explosive Ordinance Disposal team showed up and sprayed water on it.

Have you ever seen them warm the stuff up when they run out of IT in the warming trays? I did once when I ordered my Fresco Bean Burrito (with no onions, of course). The lady went to the fridge, pulled out a huge plastic bag of "beans", punctured it with a knife and squirted it (emphasis on the word squirt) into the tray. I almost ran out screaming. Last time I ever went there--seriously!

That's about as good as a description as it gets. I always pictured a Dr. Frankenstien type in a laboritory with parts all over the yelling "Its alive,It's alive!" While his Taco Bell badge shines.

Gosh, I'm not sure what that 'food' really is. I have a vision of Chinese worker slaves collecting toxic waste from factories that produce our electronics and then forming it into what passes for taco meat and frijoles! Hell, give me real lard and tripe over that stuff anytime. It's gotta be safer than the sludge they dredge up from waterways.

Well there's always explosivity in esos frijoles once inside the tummy.
