Petition to Erin, Tacos
Erin needs to come eat tacos
Erin, while adventurous and wild, can't make the trek from Oakland, CA to Fairfield, CA for a free taco party in her name. She claims to be overwhelmed with crippling anxiety while conjuring up plans and fails to execute them due to said anxiety. Contrary to popular belief, taco parties/buffets are not a cure all solution to life's ailments and she requires extra motivation to push her through the threshold into taco down. My solution to this problem is simple: Donkey Kong Country 2 (SNES). Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii), and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze (WiiU) will be available for Erin to play at her leisure. Other classics like Super Mario World (SNES) and New Super Mario Bros (Wii, WiiU) along with Mario Kart 64 (N64) will also be available, because who doesn't fucking love playing those games. If you don't, you're probably a communist and can go suck an egg. In short, Erin, get your bitch ass over next weekend for tacos and so I can crush you in video games to make myself feel more like a man.
Petition to The People of Texas
Make Tacos the National Food of Texas!
Let's make tacos the official food of Texas! Whether you grew up here in Texas or you got here as soon as you could, you’re eating tacos. In Texas, people eat tacos on a weekly basis. Hell, tacos were here before Texas was Texas! Rooted in tradition Mexicana and infused with Texas food culture, tacos can be eaten all across the Lonestar State. In Texas, you can find tacos almost anywhere, not just at Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants but food trucks, trailers, gas stations, Asian food places, barbecue joints and even All-American restaurants. Tacos are more than just this new trendy food. We've been eating tacos from our abuelita's kitchens way before the days of the Alamo. It's pretty much part of our daily diet and people in Texas are die-hard taco fans, whether it's fighting over breakfast tacos, brisket tacos or showing our love for traditional al pastor, carnitas or fajitas, we love to share the taco love and fight for favorite spots, from El Paso to Corpus Christi, the Rio Grande Valley to Dallas and Laredo to Houston. Trust me, I know tacos, not only because I eat them everyday but the Tacos of Texas team traveled to 10 cities across Texas and wrote a book about it! You can also listen to my interview here: Texas Standard: The Case for making Tacos the Official Dish of Texas. So step aside chili, tacos are here to stay. I invite you, along with the Texas Taco Council (yeah, that's a thing!) to sign this petition and let's make tacos the national food of Texas y'all!
