I have trouble staying in the lines: 90’s Coloring Book for Adults

Hey guys, my birthday is coming up and you know what I want? World Peace. Just kidding! That will never happen. What I really want is this Color The 90s adult coloring book by Outrageous Katie. It says ‘Adult’, so don’t let anyone give you any shit about being in your 20s, 30s or 40s and coloring in a coloring book (50 years olds can suck it, your were in your 20s when this stuff was relevant). For those interested in this little piece of Nostalgic awesomeness, you can buy it on Amazon! That place has everything! Except my fathers love….Anywho! Check out the link here as well as a few pictures below to get a taste of what the book offers and to plan out your coloring adventure! I myself am going to color Tim Allen blue because I’ve never seen a blue Tim Allen before and quite frankly, I want to see one. Advertisements

Taco Bell Used To Think Inside The Bun: Taco Bell Beefer and BLT Soft Taco

Taco Bell didn’t always think outside the bun… Back in the 1970s, Taco Bell had the Bell Beefer, which was essentially a taco put on a bun. The product lasted until the 90s before it vanished but apparently there were some people very disappointed by this and would bring their own buns to the restaurants and ordered the fixings to make it themselves. USA! USA!   In 1995 Taco Bell introduced the BLT Soft Taco (part of the “Sizzlin’ Bacon Menu). They placed a few strips of bacon in a flour tortilla and topped it with shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and a ranch-style sauce. Apparently this is still being sold in the Philippines because they know how to party!

The Taco Bell Chihuahua

Gidget “The Taco Bell Chihuahua” Chipperton was the figurehead of Taco Bell in the late 90s. The advertising campaign with Gidget began during a peak in the “Burger Wars,” in which several fast food chains were engaged in large advertising campaigns against each other. Despite the fact that Taco Bell’s meat tasted like Chihuahua, that didn’t stop me from proudly wearing my “¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!” The advertisements were also the major contributor to my learning the Spanish language. “¡Yo quiero Taco Bell!” = “I want Taco Bell” what more could I possibly need to know? The advertising campaign was so successful, Gidget became an icon of the 1990’s and a big time celebrity. Gidget traveled first-class, opened up the New York Stock Exchange and made an appearance at Madison Square Garden. In her later years she appeared in a 2002 commercial for GEICO and as “Bruiser’s Mom” in the 2003 movie “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde”. Sadly, on July 21, 2009 after suffering a stroke in her Los Angeles mansion, Gidget was …
