Bank of Taco Bell

Ask about our Chips and Salsa Mutual Funds: A Mexican fast-food chain in London is selling what it calls “Burrito Bonds.” Along with an 8 percent return, the bonds also pay a free burrito each week for the life of the investment.

It sounds like a good deal, but to get sour cream and guacamole for your burrito, you have to invest in a Side Order Certificate of Deposit.

Was it from a shih tzu? Residents of a wealthy Los Angeles suburb have asked their mayor to step down after a camera caught him throwing dog poop on the walkway of a political opponent. The mayor’s actions put the town in a bad light, residents said.

It wasn’t the political motivation that upset the residents; it was that the mayor threw poop that wasn’t from a purebred dog.

B.C. is giving us the strait poop: British Columbia’s refusal to act on a 20-year-old promise to build a wastewater treatment plant for Victoria’s sewage, which it pumps raw into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, has soured relations with Washington state.

Does someone have an email address for that California mayor? We have a little job for him.
