i haven’t watched TV for more than 10 minutes at a time in probably 20 years. I hate it - I can feel the dumb seeping into my brain and literally all of the content either bores or infuriates me, and I’m convinced it’s one of the prime factors for where the western world has ended up. So I haven’t had cable in probably 17-18 years.
Because of this, I can’t eat at Taco Bell. Everything on their menu is a made up word, and because I don’t watch TV and thus don’t watch commercials, I don’t know what the fuck a gorlupa or churito or whatever ficticous culturally co-opted bullshit they’re hocking this week is. Also, as my wife likes to point out, literally everything at Taco Bell tastes like Taco Bell, because it’s all made with the same 7 ingredients. I’m not much of a fan of that flavor, anyway.
Say what you want about immigration, I’m happy to have three legit taco trucks between my house and fast food that will sell me some homemade, authentic abodabo or lengua for half the price of a Doritio-Pepsi-AdultSwim branded ‘burrito’.
