Calling all hobos....

Flock to your local Taco Bell Tuesday (2-5 pm) and get a free Taco. It's apparently part of their Steal a base, Steal a Taco promotion. The whole whacky idea had people waiting around for the first base to be stolen (which I can only assume has happened) in order for free taco day to be announced. It's sort of a unique idea, but it lacks a certain...flair. I mean, the odds are almost certain that a base will be stolen and has been in every world series for over a decade now. It'd have been more interesting to inject more of a wager into it somehow. Like, if someone during the World Series hits for the cycle 10 random people at each store that day gets one of everything on the taco bell menu. That would at least be sorta entertaining. It might be funny to see news clips of people trying to haul away the unexpected bags of burritos and whatnot.

One thing that's always fun about these promotions is to read the fine print.

Participating Taco Bell restaurant manager reserves the right to deny Free Taco to any person he/she reasonably believes has already received a Free Taco or has engaged in any other fraudulent activity.

You'd have to be pretty desperate to engage in some elaborate taco scam. Maybe if you rented a bus, filled it up with people, and drove it around to each and every taco bell you can reach in a 3 hour period. I imagine a giant pile being amassed somewhere of nothing but free tacos. It might even become like one of those Guiness World Record whozits. Besides, who wouldn't like to see a giant pile of tacos 10 feet high?
