Descanse en paz, perra.

I'm sure that we've all been holding our breath to see who the third in the latest string of celebrity deaths would be, but I doubt this is what anyone was expecting. Gidget, better known as the Taco Bell chihuahua, has passed away at the ripe old age of 15 (that's 105 to you and me). Let's all drop our chalupas and have a moment of silence.

Gidget's the second legendary small screen lady with a big man's voice to leave us this year - the first, of course, being Bea Arthur. I guess someone should probably keep an eye on Della Reese and Martha Stewart.

I did just read the other week in Ad Age that for how popular this dog was in pop culture he did nothing to boost sales.

Let him RIP.

Dr. Z - Ad Age doesn't know shit.

Candy and Cora - No cry-o on my blog-o.

SkyDad - He's a she!

WWW - Animal.

Bond - I said LATEST STRING of celebrity deaths. They happen in threes. So, if we've had six, that means there have been two strings of three.

"Drop the Chalupa" was our code word for taking a crap in grad school.

It didn't actually hide the fact that you were going to do something gross, but the ladies in my lab seemed to accept that one better than "Hatching a Grumpy".

RIP to the taco dog

We actually have a stuffed Chalupa dog that says "drop the chalupa" when you squeeze it. We squeeze it plenty, because it drives the cat nuts.

The world has lost a wise Latina.

Well, the Republicans should be happy there's one less illegal on this side of the border.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
