The picture above has gone viral thanks to a write-up on the website Consumerist. People are saying that these shells were destined for the trash, but the problem is that the average consumer has no idea if this is true or not. (EDIT: Taco Bell releases a statement about “prank” photo)
It reminds me of the video that went viral back in 2009 where some Domino’s Pizza workers stuck cheese up their nose and slapped it back on the pizza. Remember that?
Based on what that kid looks like, that’s probably the only taco he’ll ever get a chance to lick. Which really might not be a bad thing as long as you can’t catch throat cancer from licking those tacos.
