Illustration for article titled The Day the Dorito Shell Tacos Made emKotaku/em Nauseous

We get a bunch of weird things in the office, especially because we share the editorial space with our sister sites, like Gizmodo for instance. Today, Taco Bell brought Gizmodo a stack of boxes filled with a dozen tacos each. But these aren't just any tacos. No. These tacos are wrapped in a Dorito chip shell.


The stench of cheese and clogged arteries has never been greater in our NY headquarters. And with that, let's start this open thread in which I take over for Mike who has been taking over for Kirk.

  • Breakfast is essential, guys - No, seriously, it is. The main reason being that it's so deliciously delicious. Who doesn't like an excuse to eat starch and sugar in the morning? If you want something on the slightly healthier side, there's always the option to cook your eggs inside bell peppers. Or something.
  • Apparently honeybees have personality that parallels ours - Researches have found that honeybees show behavior that suggests thrill-seeking. Basically, they want to go on adventures. In the words of Cyndi Lauper, "Bees - they want to have fun. Oh bees just want to have fun." Wait, that's not right. Anyway, as long as wasps don't get any more personality traits, I think we'll be fine.
  • Brazilians rescue beached dolphins - I love dolphins. They're unlike any other sea creature (read: mammal). It's also heartwarming to see that these people responded so quickly to help out. I would definitely not be one of the people standing around and capturing video footage, though. I'll be there for you, dolphin friends. And one day, I'm sure you'll save my life, too. Or take me for an awesome sea adventure. Either/or.
  • 25 pictures of Ryan Gosling's beard - Ok, so, yes. He's handsome, and you will have to suffer through this female-edition of off topic for this one entry. But admit it, you think he's handsome, too. Although, I don't agree with the number 1 selected image. It's just kinda weird to me.
  • The world's chillest dog - Look at him. Look at him standing on those cans of beans like he does it every day (he might - he's the world's chillest dog). He's so cool he's like, "I'm standing on your shoulders. OH WAIT, now I'm on a watermelon!" Oh, you. There's balance in this one.

And I'm out folks! Have a good weekend.
