Too Much Pizza

If you saw the ads for Taco Town on SNL, this won’t be anything new to you. But if you didn’t, you might enjoy this over-the-top pizza ad (via vanderleun).

(Sadly, the language in that ad is NSFW. It’s a shame that so many people lack the vocabulary, wit, and subtlety to express themselves without resorting to profanity. They do with their language what they accuse Pizza Hut of doing with food. There’s more to communicating than intensity.)

If those aren’t enough, you might also like the (slightly less vulgar) South Park Chipotle Away commercial.

The Best Cheeseburger Ever

There’s a story about the world-famous green chili cheeseburgers served by the Owl Bar, and I’m here to tell you, they’re not kidding. The best cheeseburgers evah.

(Frankly, if you’re in New Mexico, Blake’s Lotaburger is pretty good, and here in California you can’t get a better cheeseburger without green chilis than the ones they make at In’n’Out. But the Owl Bar is in a class by itself. And as the story reveals, a lot of professor-types have taken that class too. The reviews on Yelp are wonderful in their cluelessness. Not just police have unit patches, kid.)

I’m a Bean Burrito Kinda Guy

In the movie “The Blind Side,” Mrs. Touhy objects to the word when Mr. Touhy remarks that the quesadilla saved their “asses.” The exchange might overshadow the salient point, which is that Taco Bell franchisees rejoiced about the sales that the mighty quesadilla would generate for them.

Well, maybe they’ve found the next one:

Taco Bell is testing a new taco featuring a shell made from nacho cheese-flavored Doritos, a product that is quickly becoming a media star as the chain’s parent company hints of plans to “reinvent the taco” next year.

I think that sounds terrible. But then, I’ve always been a Bean Burrito kind of guy.

Indian Cooking in Crock-Pot

About once a quarter, Mrs. Accretion Disc is able to devote half a day to making some kind of Indian-food dish, and those days are awesome. Sadly, they only come once a quarter. But maybe that will change, now that someone has published a book on making Indian food in a crock-pot! The cover illustration is making me drool. (Read the author’s blog here; via Insty.)
