This was actually posted on a major market newspaper's website.

This is not a joke, a ChronBlog "reporter" actually wrote this, and it is currently on their website. (I've cached this page to Diigo just in case they change it later.)

D-Day at Taco Bell: Doritos Locos Tacos drop, Chris Preovolos, Hot Topics, Chron.com
Today, after test marketing the Doritos Locos Tacos in the culinary wonderlands of Bakersfield and Fresno, the neon orange monstrosity is available nationwide.


So I guess ChronBlog is playing economic favorites now? After all, their curious habit of disguising sales pitches as journalism frequently favors companies the reporters seem to like. I guess the logical extension of that is to trash the ones they don't?

Unfortunately for ChronBlog's elevated progressive sensibilities, it appears that these tacos are going to be a huge hit. Maybe they should reserve the monstrosity tag for their in-house opinion columnists and The Apple Dumpling Gang?
