C&#39;mon, the parody of supersizing that is way too funny and agonizingly close to reality? Well, I&#39;ve embedded it below for you all to catch up on, but the real reason for this post are the tribute videos that followed. </p> <p>Taco Town, famous for its &quot;taco wrapped in a taco, wrapped in a pizza, wrapped in a pancake and deep fried&quot; was insanely funny. But to my surprise, many frugal fans out there have tried to copy this cheap and nasty meal. Who am I to say anything about clogging arteries and cholesterol levels?</p> <p><strong>First, the original...I laugh every time. </strong></p> <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WFqdyHPJGlA" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WFqdyHPJGlA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><p><strong>And now, the tributes...oh dear. </strong></p> <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/SbgeRfei2sw" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/SbgeRfei2sw" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HlY6W2upmqc" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/HlY6W2upmqc" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/6Q-FaZypk4E" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/6Q-FaZypk4E" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/8Y3h7ez7--U" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/8Y3h7ez7--U" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object><p>I wonder, are there any other tributes out there?
