Nachos Time: Nachos in the News - A convenient mouthful of short form nacho news, topped with the cheese of truth, jalapeno slices of journalism, beans of education, and other toppings of various questionable informative analogies. We bring you nacho news one chip at a time.
Welcome to Nachos Time, for when nacho related things happen in the news, but nothing in depth to write a real article about. Here’s what’s been going on with nachos recently:
ON NACHO CLOTHING
Now I have not been and probably never will be a hat guy, but if there was one I’d wear it would be this one:
This fine piece of headwear comes from the Philadelphia-based clothing and apparel company Fourth Strike. Don’t count on getting your hands on one of these bad boys though, there are only 50 in existence so the likelihood of you landing one is pretty slim.
Dear Fourth Strike, would you please send me one?
ON “NACHO TONGUE”
Do you remember the show Rescue 911? It was one of the early reality shows and had host William Shatner going over several tales of emergency situations, including an episode of someone riding a snowmobile neck first into a barbed wire fence that as a child I will never forget. This was the beginning of the trend of more and more extreme shows about medical issues, culminating now in the show Bizarre ER, featuring strange operations and hospital mishaps. Check out the video if you aren’t eating, or if were a fan of those Faces of Death videos back in the day.
And that’s probably the most family appropriate of their segments, as in it doesn’t immediately feature a severed foot or a fence post through a butt cheek. This season however there is a special emergency where a man eating nachos bites his tongue so badly that he must be rushed to the hospital. As an added bonus he’s on blood thinners, so I can only imagine the results will make you think twice about how quickly you chow down, as nachos should be savored slowly. There's not a video of it up yet, but rest assured, once there is I'll let you know. Whether you actually watch it is up to you.
ON THE QUALITY OF NACHOS
Undoubtedly nachos are the greatest food to come from the minds of humankind, this isn’t news. As this poll on Chicago based recording studio Electrical Audio has found, 97% of people agree that nachos are “good shit” as opposed to the 3% who think they’re “bad crap”. Now, this isn’t a real scientific study by any stretch of the imagination, but the fact that a mere recording studio conducting an impromptu study on nachos got this numbers means that nachos truly resonate with the common man. Seriously, what is a recording studio even doing conducting a survey on nachos in the first place? What’s even more astounding is that their nacho poll has been going on since January of 2005 and is still active to this day. Sure, it’s only 90 something posts overall, but that this has been going on for 8 years and nachos are still agreed upon as being delicious truly says something about their long lasting appeal.
