From WFTV:

An intoxicated New Smyrna Beach man wanted Taco Bell, but employees wouldn't serve him because he was on a bicycle in the drive-through lane, authorities said.

They called New Smyrna Beach police when Gabriel Harris, 33, refused to leave after placing an order at the drive-through window as the restaurant was closing just after 3 a.m. on Sunday.

His is the human condition, the struggle we all face. Bless you, drunk-munchies cyclist guy.

Former Taco Bell Interns Claim They Came Up With the Doritos Taco in 1995

Ex-Taco Bell interns have told The Huffington Post that they are the ones who first pitched the billion dollar idea way back in 1995 as a part of an internship competition.

Andrea Watt came up with a billion-dollar idea when she was just 20 years old, and she wouldn't mind at least getting a little credit.

During a summer internship in 1995, Watt and three other college students pitched the idea of a Doritos-shell taco to Taco Bell executives as part of an intern competition. They lost that contest, but their idea turned out to be a winner more than 15 years later: Taco Bell has netted more than $1 billion in sales from its eerily similar product, the Doritos Locos Taco, which it launched in 2012.

"I'm sure I signed away that anything I pitched to them was their property anyway," Watt said. "I would just like someone to recognize that it was a good idea."

And here's the letter to Watt giving feedback on her team's idea.

From CNBC sports (and sometimes fast-food) reporter Darren Rovell, a big announcement via Twitter:

FIRST LOOK: Taco Bell launching Beefy Nacho Burrito on Wednesday: Nachos inside a burrito (99 cents)

This gratuitous one-upping of its own Doritos Locos Taco earns Taco Bell bragging rights for reaching the height of excess where tacos are concerned. But while the Beefy Nacho Burrito is still no match for Pizza Hut's Crown Crust Carnival Pizza, at least it will be available stateside.
