News: Taco Shop Closes After Calling Customers ‘Inbred, Meth Snorting Hicks’

I love that headline.
News: Taco Shop Closes After Calling Customers ‘Inbred, Meth Snorting Hicks’

While the handmade-tortilla approach is thriving in NYC, it appears that the owner of a Yucca Valley, California, taqueria where everything is made from scratch isn't having the best time out there in the scorching desert.  On Friday, the proprietor of Gonzo Tacos apparently took to Facebook to announce the demise of his restaurant.

"Well, it's been an interesting trip," he wrote, "but it's become clear to me that Yucca Valley would prefer to eat shit and die. Tomorrow will be our last day. Farewell, you bunch of inbred, meth snorting hicks!!!!"

Maybe this is par for the course from a place that sports a Hunter S. Thompson-esque name and a Ralph Steadman font on its awning, but strangely, all signs point to Gonzo Tacos being well liked. Its Yelp page is filled with four- and five-star superlatives, plus some attention for its "non-traditional" menu and service.

There's no indication of what prompted the flame-out Facebook post, which now has more than 300 responses, but there were a few warning signs.

News: Laid-Back Company Allows Employees To Work From Home After 6 P.M.

How magnanimous of them. From The Onion.
Laid-Back Company Allows Employees To Work From Home After 6 P.M.

GRESHAM, OR—Underscoring the benefits of working for a laid-back company like SocialFire Marketing, founder and CEO Matt Avalon told reporters Tuesday he had instituted an office-wide policy permitting employees to work from home anytime after 6 p.m.

“If it helps them be efficient and get more done, I have no problem with people working remotely once they’ve left the office for the day,” said Avalon, who noted that as long as they’re doing their jobs, the location where his staff members choose to work between 6 p.m. and 9 a.m. is “completely up to them.”

“That’s the kind of relaxed culture we strive to create here—one where you can even be working from your living room couch at two in the morning if you’d like.”

Avalon added that since they don’t have to be in the office for any meetings, employees are free to work from home on weekends and holidays as well.
