    I wish I had that much time in my life to pursue something as STUPID as this.
    I did'nt click on the links but I saw it on the news and it annoyed  me to death.

        I'm not party to the suit, but I always thought there was something fishy about their beef.

            Hell, all I thought they used was Tuna Helper.  No meat.
            Reminds me of a scene in the movie Vacation.

                I always thought that Taco Bell was owned by Purina.

                  Taco Bell is a Yum! Brands sub, but Jack In The Box was owned by Purina, unless they sold it.

                    Ralston Purina owned it from 1968 to 1985 and then sold it back to the Management Group of the company

                        I haven't been to a Jack In The Box since I lived in Houston, but I remember them being quite good.  Ate breakfast there almost every morning.

                          What scene was that? 

                          When they're visiting Cousin Eddie and his family, Eddie is grilling and says, "I don't know why they call this stuff hamburger helper. It does just fine by itself, huh? I like it better than tuna helper myself, don't you, Clark?"

                              Gazmik:  Thanks, now I remember.  You're pretty good!
                               
                              Foodbme:  Didn't realize you could get breakfast there around the clock.  That's excellent.  10:00 or 10:30 cutoff for breakfast is annoying, to say the least.

                                    I always thought that Taco Bell was owned by Purina.

                                    No they are not, but they do try to deconstruct their products then reconstruct them in their menu items!

                                        I haven't eaten at a Taco Bell for over 15 years. I never could get past the smell of the "beef" cooking. I usually go to a regional taco place like Rubio's. Or, as FBM can probably attest, there are several excellent taco trucks in the Phx. area.

Guess he was right all along.

                                           
                                          Your husband was definitely right.  I've never been comfortable with that "beef" filling, but wasn't exactly sure why.  (Perhaps because ground beef doesn't actually look like that?)  Also, I've never found their food very satisfying, and the only item I've ever liked is the Pintos 'N Cheese.  Meager serving, but very tasty.

                                            I never suspected TB had any integrity of quality ... It doesn't matter if they change as I'll net be eating there no matter what.  But, I'm glad to see them called to task.

                                              Eating at Taco Bell gives one the "Alpo Glow".

                                                  I wish I had that much time in my life to pursue something as STUPID as this.
                                                  I did'nt click on the links but I saw it on the news and it annoyed  me to death.

                                                   
                                                  I concur. I was watching the news the other day and MOFO (lawyer) seemed to give off the air he was doing something for us people. Such a valient man. More like his 15 seconds of fame.

                                                      Not a radio station, but the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council. They claim that the use of the word "faggot" in the song is offensive and that the song shouldn't be played on the radio without the word being edited out.

                                                        Eating at Taco Bell gives one the "Alpo Glow".

                                                        As Andrew Zimmern of "Bizarre Foods" says, "If it looks good, Eat it!"

                                                          I have a feeling that this is a case that lawyers are never punished for using threats of groundless cases as a form of blackmail. I have no doubt that this is an extortion attempt, with the threat of creating bad publicity for Taco Bell unless they pay up big.
                                                           
                                                          If it does turn out that Taco Bell is telling the truth, the lawyer bringing the suit against them should face jail time for extortion.
