When Food Gets Funny
We are grateful for The Colbert Report for shedding some light and making us laugh in this clip about Taco Bell and their “beef-ish (beef-adjacent?)” 36% tacos.

Because in the midst of headlines warning us about the dangers in our food supply and how it’s now laced with synthetic growth hormones, dyes made from petrochemicals, genetically engineered insecticidal proteins and other ingredients that weren’t in food when we were kids, sometimes things can sound so unbelievable that it is almost funny (if not downright scary!).
Remember the last time Taco Bell got hit with a headline like this? According to CNN, it was called the Starlink Scandal and had to do with the introduction of genetically engineered corn that was apparently never mean for human consumption yet found its way into Taco Bell’s taco shells.
It brings to mind that old adage, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
