upi.com – June 5 (UPI) — Police in Louisiana are reminding residents to keep 911 calls limited to emergencies after someone called to report Taco Bell was out of taco shells.
The Slidell Police Department said someone called 911 to report the Taco Bell on Gause Boulevard in Slidell “ran out of both hard and soft taco shells.”
“While this is truly a travesty, the police can’t do anything about this,” police said. “Hopefully, they are replenished in time for Taco Tuesday!”
Police described the incident as “another ‘we can’t make this stuff up’ story.” They did not say whether the caller was cited.
I should have blogged this a few days ago when it first came out but ya know life happens. Everyone has basically seen this headline already so I won’t say much besides…I don’t think this citizen did anything wrong…if anything they did their community a service. Your name is Taco Bell…your business is Tacos…you can’t run out of hard AND soft shells wtf. This reminded me of the time me and a few homies went to TBell after a night out and they told us “Sorry we’re out of meat”…imagine the shock and confusion on our faces.
