Taco Tuesdays Have Never Been So Sad

Assigning a funeral-like atmosphere to something as mundane as a fast-food restaurant is a little on the ridiculous side, no matter how much it meant to the students who frequented it.

Last Wednesday, a Taco Bell located on the main campus of Penn State was unexpectedly shut down. Much to the chagrin of late-night stoners and mid-day snackers, a group of students gathered around the fallen taco joint to pay their due respects. Prajesh Patel, a senior at the university, organized a vigil for students to mourn and talked about Taco Bell’s closing to the school’s student paper. “After hearing the news about its closing, I was very upset, as I don’t think there’s another place downtown I would feel so comfortable, some would even say another home,” he said. “I remember it being a hangout spot as I would always run into someone I know and those would turn into the best late-night conversations.”

 I understand that Taco Bell is a popular fast-food chain, but COME ON! Have we seriously come to the point where shut down restaurants are being treated like real-life deaths? What's next? A memorial service for a closed down Dairy Queen? This will go down as one of the most bizarre and unbelievable stories I have ever written. RIP Penn State Taco Bell.
