Taco Bell knows that you only eat their food grudgingly, but they just want to make you happy, baby, so they're changing their ways. Sure, you heard the same tune back when they swore that you were wrong to believe that their taco meat was only 35 percent beef and that the other 65 percent was just sawdust and Mexican tap water, but they're really trying to change this time. Taco Bell loves you. To prove it, they're bringing in celebrity chef Lorena Garcia to make their menus more upscale to compete with the likes of Chipotle and other fast food chains you aren't ashamed to be caught walking out of. Taco Bell executive Brian Niccol even went as far as to describe this menu shift as "gourmet Mexican."
This can only mean one thing. That one thing, of course, is that the 1993 Sylvester Stallone-Wesley Snipes sci-fi/action flick Demolition Man has officially become a staggeringly prophetic masterwork of genius.
In the film, renegade LA cop John Spartan (Stallone) is cryogenically frozen in 1996 and thawed out in 2032 to discover, among other things, that all restaurants are now Taco Bells and all Taco Bells have turned into fine dining establishments that serve the kind of fancy cuisine with portions so small that they couldn't fill the belly of a starving rat, let alone the slurring primitive 'roid monster that is Sly Stallone.
Can you eat the plate?
