    Now, this really is the fault of Taco Bell for making things not look like it's even food any more, and more like a photoshopped-to-hell piece of pop-art.

    But Taco Bell's "Taco Pizza" comprises of two circular nacho "bases" sandwiching chilli beef and sauce, then topped with tomatoes and three cheeses to make a "pizza".



    I'm sure you'd agree that this looks like the least real, immaculate foodie promo pic ever!

    Now, even so... I would regard the reality as pretty poor show indeed...



    Did you compose this Taco Pizza with some kind of Jackhammer/Oar/Rhino combination?

    I'm pretty sure that promo pic cannot physically be replicated without some form of glue to be honest. I think the employee tried, got pissed off and threw it in the box. It looks like its missing half the ingredients too- bad aim.

    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.
