A Taco Bell “feast” normally leaves people bloated, bereft of joy, and riddled with guilt. But not the 6,000 or so residents of Bethel, Alaska. You’ll recall that a couple of weeks ago they were tricked into believing a Taco Bell would open in their tiny town. It was not to be, but the marketing arm of the taco chain saw an opportunity. So over the weekend they flew enough fixins for 10,000 tacos — the Doritos kind — into town. No word on how much MTN DEW A.M. they carted in so people could wash everything down. [AP, Earlier]
