    I never made the connection that his last name could have been Bell.

    His last will and testament will be carried out next week, including his final wishes regarding his final remains. Your next taco may taste a little funny...


    Alternative post: Shame he never got to see Taco Bell win the franchise wars.

    Mr. Bell died at age 86

    The Taco Bell Chihuahua died at age 19. That's 133 in dog years! The little guy "outlived" the founder, lol. :D  Okay, not really. I'm just amusing myself.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Bell. I will continue to enjoy dining at Taco Bell thanks to you. May you be happy in the big enchilada in the sky. :)

    Ah... Always used to use Taco Bell for date nights. (Once the relationship was already concrete!) Sad to hear. Franchise survives at least.

    Sorry if that sounds horrible to say...

    I seriously miss Taco Bell. China has KFC and McDonalds, but not ONE Taco Bell that I've found. I need a grilled stuffed burrito in a bad way.

    Soo, does this mean that Taco Bell will change their marketing strategies?

    Like Wendy's did when Dave died. (RIP Dave Thomas) & McDonald's after Ronald McDonald was shot

    The article states that the company did not release a cause of death; I wonder if it was terrible, nightmarish diarrhea that did him in?
