We created Beavis' Great Cornholio Burrito

The Great Cornholio Burrito: A Tribute to Beavis and Butt-Head

I may be aging myself here, but Beavis and Butt-head had a profound impact on me as a kid. Profound!

And of course Beavis' Cornholio alter ego loomed large. For those of you who need a genesis refresher, in one episode, the guys visit their friend Stewart, who is home sick. Stewart’s Mom gives Beavis and Butt-head breakfast burritos, which the boys find revolting.

Butt-head: "Ugh! What the hell is this crap? This isn't a burrito."
Beavis: "Yeah. I got eggs in mine! She tricked us!"

So they ransack the kitchen and Beavis inhales all the candy, soda, and junk food in the joint. In class, he starts to spaz out and transforms into his manic alter ego, The Great Cornholio. With his Metallica T-shirt pulled over his head and arms in the air, he terrorizes the school in search of TP for his mighty bunghole.

So I created this tribute for the episode's 20th anniversary. I imagine this is the burrito of Beavis’ wet dreams: a candy burrito whose "tortilla" is Fruit Roll-Ups, loaded with enough Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, Twinkies, and other sugar to evoke The Great Cornholio in a single bite.

I need TP for my bunghole! And you will, too.
