Taco Bell Chihuahua Fired; New Chalupa "Tastes Funny"

Briefs in a Brief

New York, N.Y. (SatireWire.com) – One week after falling sales caused Taco Bell to ditch its famous Chihuahua, the company unveiled a reformulated chalupa, described as a “crispy, flaky shell with sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, and a new, tough-and-stringy meat product that tastes like chicken.” The company insisted the new chalupa, which will be sold “as long as supplies last,” has nothing to do with the beloved Chihuahua, who was popularized in Taco Bell ads but did little to help sales. “We still love that little dog,” said spokesman Gary Ebehardt, “especially with a side order of zesty Mexican rice.”

Concurrent with the Chihuahua’s firing, Taco Bell parent company Tricon Global Restaurants Inc., also replaced Taco Bell president Peter C. Waller, who it said “will be pursuing other interests” as part of a nutritious Fiesta Breakfast Burrito.
