Yo Quiero Live Forever
Great Scott was saddened to hear the news today of the death of the Taco Bell dog, Gidget. Authorities chalk it up to old age (he was 15 after all), an addictive personality and way, way too much Capri Sun. Many initially suspected foul play (after all, Michael Jackson is dead too...coincidence?), but those conspiracies were quickly corrected.
"Gidget was the worst dog on the planet. So we're glad he's not on the planet anymore," said Pita Puppykill, Gidgets long time owner and master. When asked if Pita, being an African American woman, had any qualms referring to herself as "Gidget's master," she simply replied, "stay off my land."
Still, one can't help but wonder if the Taco Bell dog is in a nicer version of heaven right now. One reserved for those that were more important during their time on earth. People like the soon-to-be-late Jim Belushi, Hypercolor tee shirts, and Pogs.
Gidget's legacy lives on in his transgendered puppy, Sprouts.
For Great Scott, I'm a cantaloupe.
