Taco Bell, pornographic hot sauce

Hi all

A recent thread elsewhere about KFC’s new everything in a bowl package got me thinking…

First, about 10 years ago…KFC tried a breakfast buffet bar…and I swear to gawd that was the most inedible food I have ever eaten…and I can tolerate just about anything…and when I pay for food somewhere…I am damn sure gonna eat something…but that thing tried my limits…it was obvious that some bean counter found the absolute cheapest of everything…if someone sold it CHEAP…and it vaguely resembled bacon…it was bacon!
Then I got to thinking about Taco Bell…they used to show gobs of cheese on their taco’s and when you got one it would have a couple of sliver’s on it…if you notice now even their ads now just show slivers of cheese on the taco…I guess the lawyers finally got em!

Now, dont get me wrong…as far as fast food, taco bell is one of the lesser evils IMHO.

But, now to the main point…

Taco Bell has these hot sauce packets…with cute sayings like “When I grow up I wanna be water bed”, “Would you still love me if I was mild” etc etc…

Well not to long ago (6 months to a year?) I dropped by and ended up with a handful of the fire hot hot sauce packets…

Now get this…I read one of the packets and it says, no kidding…

“Nice Palm, I read a great deal of pleasure in your future”

WHAT!!!

Did it see my hairy palm? My thick glasses? The lack of a ring finger? My junky nerdy car?

I immediatly went back and went inside and ordered some more stuff…then I went through every hot sauce bin and dug out every one of em that said that…they should make great gifts and collectors items in the future!

take care

I think you’re reading more dirty into it than was intended.

You get hot sauce packets at Taco Bell? Any time I go through the drive-thru I have to beg and plead for hot sauce and half the time I don’t get any anyway.

There are ones that say “Heads…” and “Tails…”
There’s also “Bike tires scare me” but my favourite is the waterbed one.

It’s feast or famine at my local one. If you don’t say anything, you usually don’t get any. But if you ask for it, they grab a big honking handful of ten to fifteen packets and stuff’em in the bag. Weird.

I love that one! I have a copy of one in my car as we speak. There was another one I got at sone point that I considered possibly even dirtier:

Save a bun, eat a taco.

Err, I don’t get it. Could some one explain what is pornographic about that? :confused:

fap,fap,fap,fap,fap,fap.

Masterbation

Oh, wow. Talk about a stretch. >_>;

I think “Nice Palm, I read a great deal of pleasure in your future” is a reference to Chiromancy. But, yeah… I see the joke now.

Hairy palms and blindness were said to be symptoms of masturbation in olden days, right? To prevent the youth from doing so.

Yep…I have this curmudeony (sp?) old neighbor across the street…but he is pretty darn nice once you get past the gruffness…He’s pretty up there in years, has minor impairment from a series of strokes…and lives alone…so I try to keep a look out for him and help him with lots of little stuff…

Anyway the other day he informs me he might need some help because he is going in for eye surgery…

I immediately exclaimed…“John…I’ve heard about doing it till you need glasses…but eye surgery? I really think you need to cut back!”

I thought he was gonna die…of course the fact that he is Southern Baptist probably helped some :slight_smile:

take care

OMG! someone else thought this, too! I totally thought this was dirty. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it. I told Suburban Plankton about it and he told me it probably refered to palmistry. And that the sauce packet wasn’t dirty, I was.

Oh, well, at least I’m not alone.

I have three packages in my cupboard (I hoard them when I can) and they say:

I M A HOT T R U 2?
It’s okay…you can say it. I love you too.
You had me at taco.

Eh. I think you can read innuendo into lots of statements and that’s probably what they’re going for. It’s called advertising. And it worked because we’re sitting here discussing it.
