Want some saliva with those tacos?

...isolated incident but makes you think how vulnerable we are as consumers especially at fast food restaurants where you have nut jobs like this working. My wife's cousin is a food delivery driver and he has sooo many stories to tell about restaurants like Cactus Club, Earls, etc.






The Taco Bell shell licker is looking for a new job.

The unidentified employee and his co-worker photographer are no longer working at the involved Taco Bell franchise, the company announced on its website. A picture posted on Facebook had shown the employee licking a tall stack of shells and the social media masses were pretty grossed out.

"We do not believe these employees harmed, or intended to harm, anyone," Taco Bell said in a statement Tuesday. "But we deplore the impressions this has caused to our customers, fans, franchisees, and team members. The behavior is unacceptable for people working in a restaurant. Our franchisee is responsible for the employment and conduct of his restaurant's employees and he has informed us that he immediately suspended the employee shown in the photo and is in the process of terminating his employment. The employee who took the photo no longer works there. As we complete our investigation we will work with our franchisee to implement any additional action we find appropriate to address this situation and ensure it never happens again."

Taco Bell also explained the circumstances of the incident.

"The taco shells were used for training in March before we launched a new product, and were in process of being thrown out. Two employees, however, used them to take a photo for an internal contest in which company and franchise employees could submit for approval photos of themselves enjoying their first bite of the product. The contest had clear guidelines about what was acceptable and unacceptable. This image was clearly unacceptable – it violated the rules and spirit of the contest, and the employees never submitted it. But an employee posted it on a personal social media page in violation of the franchisee's policies, and it emerged online in social media."

The corporate public relations officials declined to identify the location of the incident. But the manager of the Taco Bell in Ridegecrest, Calif. on Monday confirmed to CNBC that it happened there. "We're currently dealing with it," Cathy Marx, the manager at Ridgecrest told CNBC in a telephone interview Monday.

The picture was originally posted to Facebook by an account listing an affiliation to Ridgecrest. It was later posted on the Consumerist website after a reader saw it posted on Taco Bell's Facebook page.

The Ridgecrest Taco Bell has an A rating from the public health department in Kern County, which did not return calls seeking comment.

If they were in the process of being thrown out as Taco Bell did explain, I wouldn't call him a nut job as so much as idiot just goofing around.

But yeah, there's a shit ton of horrible stories revolving around restaurants. Thank god, none of that ever happened at the one I used to work at.

The guy was just goofing around with shells he was probably asked to throw away.. I understand Taco Bell wouldn't be happy about that pic getting out because it makes people thing they're getting tainted tacos, but I think they could explain the situation (kinda like they did) rather than fire the guy. Or let him publicly explain it to save his job.. hopefully getting fired from Taco Bell turns out to be the best thing that ever happened for him.

Or

The internal contest is just a "convenient" PR story for damage control.

450HP Supra I am about to use your eye sockets as a shoe rack for my nuts. ...something about chinks, j-bodys, I can't quite remember as I was drunk and looking for a girl to punch in the clit. Think of it as a digital urinal, and you are the mint, except, instead of actually smelling mint, you smell like mothballs, rotten kimchee and virginity. I'm about to start drinking heavily now and you better be gone before I get back or I swear to god I will break the internet over my knee and use the pieces to beat you in the deformed skull with, cock muffler.
