World Series Home Run to be Responsible for Sudden U.S. Diarrhea Epidemic


Weapons of Ass Destruction?
File under: Not a good idea

Yum Brands, which owns Taco Bell (and incidentally, one of the most misleading corporate names in history) plans on making our entire nation smell like a gigantic fart cloud.

CNN/Money reports: "If the target is hit, the company said customers can pick up their tacos on Tuesday, Nov. 9 between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. local time. Details will be available on tacobell.com in the event of a target-hitting home run."

Well, I know where I'll be on Tuesday, Nov. 9 between 3 and 6PM, which is to say nowhere downwind of a Taco Bell.

Someone from the Department of Homeland Security should investigate whether or not Yum Brands has any links to Al Qaeda. If their "free Crunchy Beef Taco for everyone in the U.S." doesn't constitute a severe biological terror threat to America, then I don't know what does.

CNN/Money has the story here.
