Snowed-in man desperately seeks tacos on Craigslist

Taco Bell food

When it rains, it pours. But when it snows, sometimes you're just kind of stuck at home depleting your ramen supply. But when Winter Storm Janus froze the East Coast, one man's lust for a Doritos Locos Taco turned him into a Craigslist innovator in his quest for sustenance.

Knowing his "sh**ty little hybrid douchemobile" could not safely carry him to his local Taco Bell (and that his strategy of keeping warm with liquor rendered him too lazy to hoof it), a Craigslist poster in Baltimore begged someone with a four-wheel drive vehicle to come pick him up for an emergency T-Bell run. He promised to pay in "tacos, or chalupas. whatever" and even offered to throw in some video game action at his place, provided his driver wasn't too shifty.

Apparently, his ad was about as successful as a Casual Encounters proposition from Carrot Top, but he did eventually make it out on his own to score a crunchy taco, a soft taco, a chalupa, some Cinnabon bites, and a nacho Locos taco... though considering the subzero temps, he should have probably gotten the Fiery.
