    Tacos are the perfect food, until north americans insisted on "Hard Shell" tacos? Why the hell would anyone in their right mind bite down on a hard shelled taco that's obviously going to fall apart, and into your lap?

    From Averin, Sophie. “History of Tortillas and Tacos” Tortilla History Pages 1 – 5 The author explains Tackling the taco and a guide to the art of taco eating.

    Samson, are you by any chance in New Mexico? We need to break bread, or tortillas. I couldn't agree more.

    Sometimes I'm forced to visit Hobbs.

    The last time I was there, I spent my evenings in Diamond Lil's Salloon playing pool until this catfight broke out. The loser left with some guy.

    Fortunately for me, they left in the guy's car, and her car, a Mustang was still in the parking lot. The winner threatened to pee in the gas tank, and I dared her, thinking that a female couldn't possibly pee into a gas tank (unless there was some sort of funnel involved, and she didn't claim to have a funnel).

    Lo-and-Behold, she leaned against the car, AND ACCOMPLISHED THE TASK!!:eek:

    Then she sat on the windshield, leaving a moist impression of her.....um, "nether regions."


    Which, brings us back to the subject of tacos..........:tongue:

    That sounds about right for Hobbs...

    Now, as for tacos, I prefer a stuffed sopapilla.

    I'm thinking the Attorney General of the USA should sue someone.
