"Crack brownies"

No one deserves this, NOT EVEN FRESYES.

(Maybe Bakersfield does.)

That sounds delicious.

I'll see myself over to the shame corner now.

I'll have some taco shells and salsa please.

Taco Bell is really the Red Roof Inn of fast food restaurants.

@HiredGoons oh, no that would be Pizza Hut.

Puny half-measures. Wake me up for the Oreo taco shell.

Come on, you guys, don't be mean, Fresno and Bakersfield need this. Fuck you, San Francisc-no!

@jfruh Bakersfield needs a lot of things…but not this. Not this.

BoHan (#29)

@jfruh San FranciscNo is the most awesome thing I've heard all week. Also, Los AngelYes.

@jfruh I have relatives in Bakersfield. Now I have one more reason to visit! (The others being the Buck Owens museum and Basque restaurants.)

Good to see Tim Pawlenty got a TV gig after all.

This just provides further evidence that California hides within it the shittiest places in the country.

get with it, awl. this is 21st century urban fusion gone corporate. more than once, at a particular taco truck in oakland (situated conveniently next to a, umm, convenience store) have i seen african-american teenagers provide the truck's proprietor with a bag of doritos with which she makes a heaping plate of nachos. i understand that this corporate appropriation is offensive, but the dish's origins could not be more authentic.

@iantenna Authenticity is the stick with which we beat people we don't like.

That's actually a pretty exciting phenomenon! I would not expect to be granted that option at the Pico de Gap taco truck… unless (as is completely possible and/or likely) Gap and Frito-Lay are under the same corporate umbrella (which, I guess, would also include the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell).

daemonsquire (#9,523)

I heard from someone in the area, who's had one. I believe the review could be interpreted as, "Fres-ehh…" (or maybe, "Bakers-feh…").

cripes. that just gave me a baudrillard-flavoured ice cream headache.
