There’s an old food safety saying: gloves give a false sense of security, and it doesn’t matter whether wearing gloves or not, you scratch your ass, bacteria are going to move.
OK, it’s my saying.
Been making people cringe for 20 years.
But now, because everyone has a camera, there’s photographic proof.
A customer at an Ohio Taco Bell noticed one of the employees behind the counter had his skillful taco-making hands inside his pants, brushing up against his backside.
The customer posted the picture to Taco Bell through Facebook, and according to Fox 8, the employee was identified, then fired.
Taco Bell said:
“This is completely unacceptable and has no place in our restaurants. Our franchisee took immediate action, and has terminated the employee and retraining the entire staff. We want customers to know that the person in the photo was never in contact with the food, and that the Health Department inspected the restaurant and approved its operations.”
They couldn’t fire the guy fast enough, though, as the memes quickly started pouring into Taco Bell’s site.
If someone tried ordering a Choco Taco, this guy was definitely delivering.
But instead of the corporate apologetics, Taco Bell could have found a more fitting use for its PR thingies.
RIP Yogi. King of the soundbite
Before athletes were required to have a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in addition to their busy schedule of pre-, post- and mid-game interviews, Berra’s prowess with a funny quip and quick soundbite rivaled his skill on the field.
Lines like “It’s déjà all over again” have bcome so ubiquitous that they simply seem to have sprung, fully formed, from the American vernacular.
