A piece of Americana fast food history will be safe thanks to the good people at Taco Bell.

The first ever Taco Bell restaurant will be picked up, loaded on to a truck and driven 45 miles to a new home (all while being livestreamed.)

And it all happens TODAY!

The Downey, CA building served as a Taco Bell from 1962 to 1986 until other taco shops took up residence. Developers are eyeing the property, so Taco Bell corporate stepped in to rescue the building.

Taco Bell hasn't decided what to do with "Numero Uno," but the company is taking suggestions from fans while the old shop rests at Taco Bell headquarters for safe keeping.

If you live in Southern California, you can follow the building's journey along its many stops. Or check out the live feed here.

Risky Move of The Day: McDonald's is Officially Killing The Dollar Menu

The Dollar Menu is dead.

It has been a slow death for the popular Dollar Menu at McDonald's. But a new menu called the "McPick 2," which allows customers to choose between a McDouble, a McChicken, small fries and mozzarella sticks for $2, is taking its place.

The company hopes this will bring customers back who have left since the death of the Dollar Menu.

From the AP:

Whether the McPick menu catches on remains to be seen.

In an attempt to wean customers off the Dollar Menu in 2012, McDonald's rolled out an "Extra Value Menu" that offered items for a range of prices. After that failed to take hold, the company turned to the "Dollar Menu & More," which channeled a proven name but may have confused people with its range of prices.

McDonald's isn't alone in struggling to get customers to let go of the $1 price. Wendy's tried replacing its 99-cent menu with a "Right Price Right Size" menu, but acknowledged the switch wasn't doing the job. Last month, it began promoting a limited-time "4 for $4" deal that includes a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, fries and a drink.

Your McGangBang dreams are pretty much over, America.

We weep for you.

This McDonald's employee definitely wasn't lovin' it.

The company told reporters Wednesday that an employee captured in a video luring a homeless man to the drive-through window in Detroit with a hamburger, and then throwing water in his face, has been fired.

"Hey, Willie. Come here. You want a sandwich?" the unnamed employee can be heard yelling before throwing the cup of water.

McDonald's franchisee Wise Finley said he was disturbed by the "inappropriate" incident and took action to fire the employee.

"This type of behavior is not tolerated in my organization. I expect my employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and this was unacceptable," Finley told the Detroit Free Press.

Outrage of The Day: A Mom is Super Upset About The Sex Message on Her Kid's Chipotle Cup

And on today's episode of "Everything Offends Me," a woman is really upset at the message on her kid's Chipotle cup.

Did the cup encourage the child to club baby seals? Set fire to a school? Join ISIS?

Nope. It just had two words that made the mom feel uncomfortable: reproductive sex.

OK, maybe out of context these words seem odd on a Chipotle cup. But not if you know anything about the artist that designed the cup.

The artist, Anthony Doerr, describes the cup like this:

Tattoo Earth's 4.5-billion-year timeline onto your arm, shoulder to fingertip, and your upper arm will get nothing but geologic mayhem: meteorites, magma, acid rain. Life won't begin until your bicep, and from there to your wrist it's all single-celled, oceangoing stuff. Reproductive sex won't show up until your wristwatch, and creatures that are finally big enough to see—tubes and fronds and weird Precambrian plant-animals—will crisscross the back of your hand.

Trilobites paddle across your palm; ancient forests grow from your knuckles; dinosaurs wind around the joints at the ends of your fingers. Mammals burrow into your cuticles.

Orangutans, arrowheads, Cleopatra, the names of the stars—they all have to fit on the sliver of fingernail at the end of your longest finger.

So the artwork is an arm showing how the world came to be through evolution. And reproductive sex would only show up around the wrist.

Outrage averted.

Something is fowl over at Australian food chain Chicken Treat.

The company has hired a new social media manager, and she's a literal chicken.

Betty the chicken has taken over the restaurant's Twitter account with the goal of sending an actual 5-letter English word by Oct. 30. And so far, she's said some pretty profound things.



Betty is clearly a very smart chicken. This shouldn't take too much longer.

A new video has emerged online of a Burger King employee in Lake Worth, Florida pouring fry oil into a storm drain, and it has a lot of people flaming mad.

Joe May, who was passing by at the time, decided to capture the disposal on camera. He then posted the clip on Facebook along with a brief description of the scene, which now has almost 1 million views.

International franchise and they cant pay for a disposal company?! How often is this happening? Everyday? Twice a day? Someone needs to be held accountable for this. And yea, it was without a doubt, used fry oil. It was steaming hot. Share this so everyone can see what these people are doing!

May also notes on his page that he shot a second video of his interaction with the manager of the restaurant, but that one doesn’t appear to have been posted yet.

Some angry viewers of the clip are posting it on Burger King’s Facebook page and asking for the company to comment on it.

WPTV News spoke with an environmentalist who confirmed that dumping anything into the sewer is probably not a good idea.

“Whatever is going to be put in the water that’s going down the storm drain is going to be a problem,” he said.

The fast food chain might need take a cue from McDonald’s and give the Burger King mascot a sexy makeover to help dig themselves out of this PR mess.

This guy is definitely not "lovin' it."

A McDonald's employee in St. Paul, Minnnesota went on a rampage this past weekend, and the whole thing was captured on video by one of the customers.

He storms back and forth knocking down everything in sight, leaving quite a mess while everyone else in the store watches.

The scene is a bit like the kid who tore through a dollar store last year, but with a lot more screaming and profanity.

He had just been fired, according to the uploader, which triggered the McMeltdown.

This isn't exactly the McDonald's experience depicted in their new "Pay With Lovin'" campaign.
