Yo Quiero Taco Bell!

Sadly Gidget has passed away; she was a star and a real trooper. She achieved this even though she was a "deerhead". She will be missed and the girls are devastated.

A mexican bbq will be held this weekend in honour of her.

Re: Yo Quiero Taco Bell!

LOL...I loved that campaign. Used to go to 'The Bell' a lot in Calif and that is about the only fast food that I miss.

Sorry vwild, their burritos will still have to remain (for the moment) a memory of culinary-craving-masterpieces.

Love the slogan:

Re: Yo Quiero Taco Bell!

Much as I'd rather be getting stared at, taxed, fined, and treated rudely by insecure-but-aggressive Swiss with sweaty feet and bad manners (really!), as long as I'm still stateside, a small consolation is that my current "day job" is within walking distance from "The Bell."

RIP Gidget...

I miss Taco Bell too!

I also miss The Mean Bean and Taco Stand in Athens, GA, and Sanchez Burrito Company in Tucson.

I miss burritos!

Re: Yo Quiero Taco Bell!

One expensive Chihuahua

A lawsuit filed in 1998 by Joseph Shields and Thomas Rinks alleged Taco Bell failed to pay them for use of the Chihuahua character they created. The men alleged that Taco Bell had breached payment on a contract after they worked with the restaurant chain for a year to develop the talking Chihuahua for use in marketing. The Chihuahua became a hit: In a commercial, the character bypasses a female Chihuahua for a Taco Bell taco and declares: "Yo quiero Taco Bell." The two men received $30.1 million in compensation[8] plus nearly $12 million in additional interest three months later.[9] Taco Bell in turn sued its ad agency TBWA saying it should have been aware of the conflicts. In 2009 a three-judge federal appeals panel ruled against Taco Bell.[10]

R.I.P., Gidget. May you happily trot across the cosmos in all your big-eyed splendour.

Yeah... and every time you've gotten the coffee down about a third from the rim that "funny waitress" runs over and tops up your cup leaving you looking like a mad scientist while you try to add the right amounts of sugar and cream to bring your coffee back to the sweet and creamy levels you prefer..!!!

Oh yeah...At least she does not expect some huge tip for all her eager coffee refilling .

On the other hand, mad scientists do fit right in with the greasy spoon interesting crowd, haha. I loved people watching there, so diverse, had to do it decretely of course, did not want to end up with hashbrowns, eggs and pancakes on my head.
