Bit: New Mexican American Food
Episode: 319- War of the Colossal Beast
Joel: Hey. Hi, everybody, welcome to the Satellite of
Love. I'm Joel Robinson and these are my bloods Tom Servo
Joel: And we
decided to take the prefixes, root words, and suffixes of
Mex-American food, add some new food types, mix 'em all up
and do what Madison Avenue does and find a whole new way to
love the same old crap.
Crow: Yeah, like
the pundits say: Invent a new type of Mexican junk food, and
the world will make a run for your border.
Check this one out, ok?
Tom: Oh, look.
Spicy, peachy, battered chonga. Oh, that would be a spicy,
lightly battered peach in a delicious, chewy chonga.
Crow: What the
hell is a 'chonga?'
Joel: Hey. Leave
him alone. He's just getting into it. Try this one,
Uh--Chickeny, Gatorade-arita. Crispy, dead chicken; Gatorade
marinade. All wrapped in a tasty, toasty, tacorita pita.
What do we have here? Bel Grande, cheesy-
Joel: Did we use
Yeah...uh--no. It's right there. Beefy, blue-steak taco. Oh
good, we're on a roll! Bel rocco, poco, loco, rococco-
Joel: I'm runnin'
out of room.
Tom: That's ok.
Keep flowin' with a taco!
Crow: Ooo! It's
coco moco good!
Voice: (annoyed) Oh-lay off.
Commercial sign in fifteen seconds.
Joel: Oh, well
here's my favorite one right here. Check this out. Beefy,
peanut buster bel grande.
Crow: Oh, you get
a MSTie misdemeanor for that beater.
Joel: This one's the Pat Morita Fajita.
Tom: Oh, that's
Joel: And then
there's the Maria Conchita Alonzarito.
Joel: And here's
one of my favorites: The Emperor Hirohito-rito. (Crow and
Tom chuckle.) And the Curly Joe Dorito. And lets not forget
the Ed Herlihy-to-ito Dorito.
Tom: Made with
fine, Kraft jet-puffed, miniature marshmallows. He he he. Oh
say, Joel, why do Americans rename Mexican food dishes?
Joel: Oh, it's
just part of the American. Turning a neighboring country,
rich in culture and beauty, into a goofy appetizer. Oops, I
think the Mads are calling.
