Somehow ECRUcast sounded too pretentious.


My New Dream Job: Taco Bell

May 29th, 2009 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Last night I decided stopping my stomach from growling immediately was worth more than my long term health, so I stopped in at a Taco Bell/Pizza Hut to do some serious damage to my innards.

Then I noticed this place was hiring when I saw this:

Let’s look closely at this poster. Not only is that woman SUPER happy to be working there, but there is all sorts of strangeness going on…

First off she’s clearly traveling at super speed. She’s run in so fast there’s nothing but a blur behind her. I didn’t know a job at Taco Bell could help you move that fast. I know that after eating one of their bean burritos I move that fast to the bathroom, but that’s another matter.

Then there’s the matter of the headphones and CD floating in the air. Apparently they give you a crazy CD player when you start working at Taco Bell. Which would be really cool…back in 1999…but we use MP3 players these days…more over, I’d rather you were listening to my request to hold the onions than rocking out to Kids Bop 7. (but at least hey throw in ONE roller blade skate…that’s…always useful)

But the best part is the text at the bottom: “Follow America’s Lead.” Is that the best advice in this point in history? Regardless, since when is America leading the way into shitty fast food jobs? And who would want to follow that lead?

Well I putin an application…we’ll see if they call. (Hello discounted Cruchwrap)

    Why didn’t I think of putting in an application at Taco Bell!? Discount Crunchwrap sounds awesome…. Tim, thank you for giving me an idea of one more crappy place to apply. Finding your first job, is a pain in the ass!

    Also, their website has similar WTF! pictures when you go to fill out an online application.

    The leg in front looks odd too. Like she has hyper extended it or by slipping on a Chalupa.

    Not only that, it looks liek she’s kicking open a portal to a new dImention! Ahhhhh Taco Bell Universe!

    Not eating leads to hunger. Hunger leads to Taco Bell. Taco Bell, leads to suffering…

    Tony, your comment reminded me: We received an awesome mailer from a Chinese delivery restaurant recently…”Hunger+Delay=Anger” How can we not order from there?

    I’ve never been to a Taco Bell. Even though the outcome seems to be suffering for all that enter, I’m a little jealous.

    Thinking about Taco Bell just made me ill.

    I saw this yesterday, and the funny (and misleading thing) is that next to her in-uniform pic is her name… America.

    Ah…. BenKenobi shows the way… the chick’s name is America… you’re supposed to want to follow /her/ lead.
