Mr. Crankypants, Taco Hell, and the Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito!!!

Mr. Crankypants is combustible, so we try to censor any stimuli that may cause him to flare up. For example, we've deleted FoxNews from our cable directory, we don't invite him to eat at Applebee's, and we never ever discuss politics in his presence. However, it's impossible to create a completely sterile environment for Mr. Crankypants. He's bound to encounter irritants in this crazy world.

For example, last weekend we were watching a little college football and commercials for the following Taco Bell product kept airing:

This sent Mr. Crankypants into a tailspin. He already refers to Taco Bell as Taco Hell, and now they were insisting on butchering the English language by referred to something as STUFT and they were pushing a product that makes no sense at all: Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito! Each time the comercial aired, he twitched and mumbled something about the corporate bastards ruining America.

To soothe Mr. Crankypants I poured him a whiskey and cola, and then I made him watch the following SNL Taco Bell parody.

Mr. Crankypants laughed so hard that he snorted whiskey out his nose. I guess, laughter is the best medicine.

I was weak. I was hungry. I saw the picture, and, in my confused state, it looked damned tasty. It was one of the nastiest things I've tasted. Once we turned off the highway and onto a county road, I chucked half of the thing out the window for the varmints to chow on. Starvation was a better option than forcing myself to eat another bite. I only wish I'd had some Jack and Coke to wash the taste out of my mouth, but I'm pretty sure that's illegal for even a passenger of a motor vehicle. Funny clip though.

Not saying the folks at SNL are geniuses or anything, but I think the list of parody commercials that have come true is up to 20 or so.
