    Gidget, the Taco Bell chihuahua suffered a massive stroke Tuesday night and had to be put down. She was 15.

    I theenk they'll need a leetler box.

    (sorry, couldn't resist)

    I thought we were talking about Sally Field.

    Shame about the mutt, though.

    Without a doubt... Gidget will be buried in a Taco Bell "Big Bell Box Meal" box...



    It's the right thing to do. Yes.

    You ever notice how the food just kind of hovers in the box in the pictures of these BIG fast-food meals?

    And it never looks like the food you actually get... and I guess that goes for every fast food chain...

    I think Taco Bell was actually rated as one of the "best" of the fast food chains as far as nutrition is concerned, oddly enough.

    Really? I thought it was literally death in a box. Maybe that's KFC I'm thinking of. Ahhhhh!

    Heh. Yeah, KFC would be death in a box... all that deep fried skin... yowza.

    Now that McDonald's is posting nutrition info on the boxes of their sandwiches, I think people are getting a shock.

    Quarter Pounder with cheese: 26g of fat 1190mg of sodium!
    Big Mac: 29g of fat and 1040mg of sodium!

    Holy sodium batman! WOW!

    Although, looking at the Taco Bell menu... wow.

    Volcano Crunchwrap: 37g of fat and 2200mg of sodium!!!

    JEEZUS!

    Sodium is probably bad stuff, but it's the salt you really have to look out for! Coffee!
