Alaskan Town Falls Victim to Cruel Taco Bell Hoax
Here in the lower 48 we take for granted our “fourth meal.” But if you live up in the frozen tundra of Alaska, you can’t just take a spin to the local Taco Bell. In fact, if you live in Bethel, Alaska, a town of 6000, you would have to drive about 350 miles to Anchorage to grab a late-night gordita.
Which is why Bethel resident were so excited when yellow fliers announcing the arrival of a Taco Bell by this Fourth of July starting appearing around town. Finally the arctic dwellers could “Live Mas.”
But, alas, it was just a cruel, crual hoax. “I repeat: Bethel is NOT getting a Taco Bell,” announced local radio station KYUK, as the buzz about the fast food franchise reached a fevered pitch.
Hopes dashed, but life-expectancy increased, Bethel residents wake up to the reality that they may never get to taste a Chalupa. The town is only accessible by boat or plane and the closest they have to a proper fast food restaurant is a Subway. And when you’re craving grease, a six inch turkey sub just isn’t going to cut it.
