Fuzzy's Taco Shop....meh.

Would you believe I was actually proud of myself for not "getting" the dirty joke surrounding 'Fuzzy's Tacos' at first. Turns out I'm not as much of a 6th grade boy as I thought I was.The food was good but the wait was long and the feminist in me felt like I should have stormed out rather than wait in the 30-minute long line....especially once I started reading all of their wall decor...
Yeah, we get it. Your tacos are good but not good enough to stand on their own without an underlying oral sex references. Classy.

I'm not going lie, part of my disappointment certainly came from the fact that the building where I was now standing use to be the old Braums- a place I had been to a thousand time as a little girl. And now this structure that still held so many wonderful memories of my childhood was centered around tasteless humor and mediocre tacos.

I will give them this though, at least there were no half naked waitresses. yet. Maybe that should count for something.

  1. My friends were HORRIFIED. And, they were hippies back in the day. This is the LAST thing we needed.

    My girlfriend was so incredibly insulted, she couldn't even muster the words....

    THUMBS DOWN.

  2. And unlike a Hooters of Twin Peaks where you know what you're walking into, from the outside this place just looks like a quaint little taco bar.

  3. Obviously opened for the UTD crowd. Maybe we can build a bridge over Campbell to the campus!
    And the city management and council did say they were trying to draw in "young professionals".

  4. We walked in. Looked around. Walked out. Just not funny unless you are 14 year old boy.

  5. Sounds like they're going for the coveted 8th grade demographic.

  6. I have a friend who is a shrink...and works for the State of Texas. One night, over dinner, the conversation strayed into sex offenders. I asked him, "Is it just me, or are there MORE?"

    "No," he said, "and yes. There are the same numbers, or close to it for the last 50 years or so, BUT there's a big difference. External factors, like pornography and acceptance of what was previously widely deemed to be private, even deviant behavior is now normal."

    I had a lot of questions. Here's what Fuzzy Tacos does, it makes a woman's (sorry for the graphic talk) vagina an object. Women who go there, as Destiny has pointed out, unsuspectingly, are subject to the idea that "they deserve" it. Whatever it. Is.

    Garbage in, garbage out.

  7. Innappropriate this may be, but it's amusing to remember how it was once the feminist movement that used vaginal imagery in order to shock others, make them uncomfortable, etc. I once found a "C*** Coloring Book" in a used book store, proudly published by some San Franciscan women's movement from the seventies. It was graphic for the sake of being graphic, in the name of womanhood. I'm sure the pendulum will swing back the other way before long.
