Down at SXSW this past week, which was pretty well Cool Ranchified with junk-food advertisements, one of the day parties was sponsored by The Bell. They were giving away free Doritos Locos tacos by the crate. Sounds fantastic, right?

The problem, of course, is the Doritos Locos taco shells carry the same flavor as the top flap of a Banker's Box®. There are only so many a person can tolerate sober. And so, Taco Bell, I say you are doing it wrong.

Cruising Reddit's glorious food page this morning illuminates who's doing it very, very right. The above, of course: The Bacon Taco Shell. Can't you just hear the crisp bite through the bacon? Taco Bell 0, Random Person on Reddit 1.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
