It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman… It’s a Taco!

Never underestimate the power of American engineering

Never underestimate the power of American engineering

Remember the MexiCannon?

Well, that is nothing compared to what American engineers have come up with now.

Meet the Taco Cannon.

According to a report on KETV7 Omaha (which apparently is a real city) the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks will soon introduce a taco cannon to ‘spice up’ their games. The contraption (which I bet is Made in China) is supposed to shoot tacos — or what people in Nebraska think are tacos — out in the air for spectators to enjoy. But, as a local journalist very cleverly asks: “How can tacos become something you can shoot out from a cannon?”

Well, Taco Cannon enthusiasts/sponsors have the answer:  “I wouldn’t say [the taco] will be restaurant quality once it gets to them, but it’s edible.” 

I don’t know about you but I am not looking forward to being hit in the head –not even by a bad taco. But the Omaha taco chain which is sponsoring the thing seems to be pretty excited.
