CLOVIS, N.M. - A call about a possible weapon at a middle school prompted police to put armed officers on rooftops, close nearby streets and lock down the school. All over a giant burrito.

The huge burrito only becomes a weapon after ingestion.

Can I be the first to say it, please, please?

Is that a burrito in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

well. I did do a search, and didn't get anything. I'm wondering if some computers don't take well to the search engine or what, because that has happened before.

I can understand why the Police were called in. Who eats guacamole? More importantly, where does guacamole come from? Is it manmade?

The same slimy place banana daquiris come from, I'd guess.

Guacamole is a mixture of avocado flesh and garlic. Any chef should know that.

Guacamole is made from avocados and other stuff.

Who eats guacamole? A whole lot of people but not me.

'Guacamole is a mixture of avocado flesh and garlic. Any chef should know that."

I don't think that there was a chef involved with the majority of "guacamole" inflicted upon most Mexican food that I've encountered. I have had decent guacamole that wasn't pureéd into slightly viscous green sludge and found it edible, pleasant actually. But, the avocado, garlic, cilantro, onion, etcetera was diced.

Ignore the thread police. What they never tell you is they spend 45 minutes running different search combos before they complain. And then some others just need to get a life.

The burrito would've weakened the habanero some. I'd be more worried if it were just a habanero :-)

We have Navajo tacos around here. They're very yummy, but about the size of a labrador. Plan on napping if you eat a whole one.
