Things We Saw Today: Someone Made the Horrific Taco Amalgam From That SNL Taco Town Skit

YouTube personality Andrew Rea of Binging With Babish brought viewers behind the scenes of his internet sensation while also managing to gross more than a few folks out (myself included) with this incredibly ridiculous recreation of the “taco” from Saturday Night Live‘s “Taco Town” parody commercial. Blegh. (via Laughing Squid)

  • Speaking of “tacos,” Taco Bell admitted that they were pretty much only kowtowing to customers’ habits when they started selling booze at their stores. Apparently customers were doing it so much anyway, so they decided to cash in on it. Makes sense to me. (via A.V. Club)
  • Guillermo del Toro’s work finds its way to comics once again. The director’s Trollhunters animated series is coming to Dark Horse early next year. (via CBR)

The Daily Beast’s Ira Madison has a few words for those who have been treating the news of R. Kelly’s possible “sex cult” as a joke. Long story short: knock that shit off.

  • In a blog post to the BioWare Blog today, Aaryn Flynn announced that he will be stepping down as BioWare’s General Manager and leaving the company. Casey Hudson will be returning to BioWare to take Flynn’s place. This is a pretty major revelation, people.
  • One woman figured out the a way to combat manspreading on the subway: sit on the guy’s leg. Granted, I know I’d get a bit squicked out by the prospect of sitting on a stranger’s leg (heaven forbid they get the wrong idea), but hey, if it works for you, then that’s fantastic. (via Boing Boing)
