    Another one from Taco Bell; Their new Doritos Locos Taco. This one, I don't even CARE that it's nothing like the picture.

    A ground beef spicy taco with all the fittings and fixtures, but the taco shell is in fact a MASSEEF OFFICIAL DORITO. Nice.



    But what you get is fairly similar but... MEAT ANYONE? MEAT? HELLOOOhoOoOo?



    Is that it lurking there in that little cave like a hidden moray eel?

    I had to smile when I stumbled across this excited poster who was lucky enough to be in a Canadian McDonalds (where they serve the McLobster).



    Looks like a really old-fashioned menu pic, doesn't it? Still, looks pristine in presentation.

    And she was given this:



    Er... yeah.

    But the thing is, I would STILL give it a go. I would tear that bad boy APART.
