Florida Man….

This story introduces a new category, “Florida Man”. It seems that when it comes to bizarre acts and crimes the story is preferenced with: FLORIDA MAN. It seems to me this isn’t an indication of geography it is referenced by an attitude or a state of mind. So when you Florida Man it should be your tip off that what follows only passes for normal in a Florida state of mind.

An irate patron called the Slidell, La police after the local Taco Bell ran out of both hard and soft taco shells. The story is funny, until one considers the implications.


Taco Bell only has one job. That is to sell lousy tacos to people with no taste. How does a Fortune 500 company run out of the one thing it sells?

Yum! Brands, Inc., or Yum! and formerly Tricon Global Restaurants, Inc., is an American fast food company. A Fortune 500 corporation, Yum! operates the brands Taco BellKFCPizza Hut, and WingStreet worldwide, except in China, where the brands are operated by a separate company, Yum China.[4] Prior to 2011, Yum! also owned Long John Silver’s and A&W Restaurants.[5]

Based in Louisville, Kentucky, it is one of the world’s largest fast food restaurant companies in terms of system units—with 48,124 restaurants (including 856 that are company-owned and 47,268 that are franchised) around the world in 145 countries

What does it say about people who, disappointed in the search for heartburn, decide their only recourse is to call the police?

What would Tony do?
