Oh, Taco Bell. First, there was the incessant rumor that the company turned its beloved mascot into a chalupa. Now, the “Mexican” fast food giant is under scrutiny because an Alabama law firm has claimed that its beef filling is only 36–percent beef.
Unfortunately, as proved in the movie Good Burger, questionable meat is the mark of a successful business. After all, Mondo Burger — the fancy grub shack that almost cost a pre–SNL Kenan and pre–bankruptcy Kel their jobs — stuffed its jumbo–sized burgers with a healthy dose of “Triampathol.”
While we have absolutely no idea what Triampathol is, we have a feeling it’s much more dangerous than the “isolated oat product” in a Cheesy Gordita Crunch. This is good news for Taco Bell — since Mondo Burger exploded and its owner was arrested — but even better news for the drive–thru enthusiasts craving a Meximelt.
