Here in the USA, there is a fast food chain throughout a number of states called Del Taco. The menu consists of a Mexican-American food theme, such as tacos, burritos, burgers, quesadillas, etc.
The following excerpt is from a
geeky study session that took place at Denny’s, yes, I was there.
We sat in a window booth that offered a perfect view of a Del Taco location.
B: I don’t know why they’re advertising those Tacos del carbon, they’re clearly not organic.
Me: *giggle* They’re tacos del carbon as in grilled tacos…. Not as in carbon based, i.e. organic.
J: Someone apparently has their nose too deep in the O-Chem books.
Proof, that not ALL of us Californians suffer from Mexican-American influences.
Del Taco – literally means “Of the Taco”
Carbon – “coal” not to be confused with carbono as in Dióxido de carbono – Carbon dioxide.
O-Chem – aka: Organic Chemistry.
