This is probably going to sound strange to anyone who listens, but I’m actually coming to Taco Bell’s defense in this week’s episode. Not because I think it’s OK that they serve “88% beef, 12% filler” in their tacos and burritos, or because I own Taco Bell stock (although that would be ironic). No, I’m defending them this week because anyone who was truly shocked to find out that their “Taco Meat Filling” was not simply seasoned ground beef is naive and in need of a serious education.
What occurred last week changed nothing. In fact, it gave Taco Bell the kind of publicity that they haven’t seen since their chihuahua shook its 9-pound ass down Madison Avenue. Those that eat Taco Bell on a regular basis are aware that the 50-cent tacos they’re enjoying aren’t loaded with quality meat. And guess what? They don’t care. In fact, they’re probably going back there tomorrow for lunch.
