Taco Bell Beginnings? – Run For The Border



My friend Anne Parisi sent me this photograph.  Anne lives in San Diego, and this is a road sign that adorns the highways anywhere near the Mexico border.  I found this sign extremely funny, but I guess hitting immigrants is a real problem there.

As an aside, does anyone else think that Taco Bell using the phrase “Run for the border,” was a bit dangerous?

    But didn’t the phrase “Run for the border” usually refer to outlaws who were headed south, rather than immigrants heading north? In the old westerns a lot of Yankee bandits would try to flee to Mexico to escape the law.

    Some in Southern California refer to that sign as the “Road Runner” sign.
