Would You Eat This Taco Salad?

While it's true that airlines have recently expanded their food offerings, the airport still dominates the market when it comes to travel meals. But — like Party and I witnessed during last year's trip to Aspen — airport food often falls incredibly flat. During recent travels, I experienced something similar when I ordered what I expected to be a taco salad, only to be greeted by a heaping pile of white rice, stringy chicken, overcooked corn, and wilted cilantro. Although I was starving, I was also completely grossed out, and tossed my takeout after just a few bites. Does this bowl of overcooked matter look like something you'd be willing to eat?

No way! Looks gross - really sad that any venue would give this to people.

nylorac: Yes, we might have had the same thing. I guess it left an impression with both of us.

I'd eat it... it doesn't look BAD. But it's NOT a taco salad. Ridiculous that they would call it that.

Nope, sorry, that looks really gross. I don't really like taco salad much, especially if there's rice with it.

How is that a taco salad? Where is the shell? It's just rice with stuff piled on it.

There are two things that come to mind. One (totally SFW) is the Bud Light "Real Men of Genius" ad for Mr. Giant Taco Salad Inventor ( The other (NSFW - language) is Oswald Patton on the KFC Famous Bowl, or as he calls it, "a failure pile in a sadness bowl." ( That's all.
