Kyle Schwarber Scores Free Taco For Everyone

Taco fans are celebrating after Philadelphia Phillies left fielder Kyle Schwarber stole second base in game one of the 2022 World Series Friday night, winning tacos for all of America as part of Taco Bell’s ‘Steal a Base, Steal a Taco‘ promotion.

Fans now have a week to download the Taco Bell app and redeem a free Doritos Locos Taco thanks to Schwarber.

No purchase is necessary to score the taco, but there is a limit of one free taco per registered app user. This is the only good thing that sports has ever done, as far as we’re concerned.

Florida Man Armed With Gun, Knife, Oreos Robs Dollar General

Apparently, a masked robber’s hands were too full to take money from a clerk he was robbing in Florida — so he had his victim drop the loot into a bag with his groceries.

The incident happened at 8:17 a.m. Monday at a Jacksonville Dollar General store. Police say the suspect — who was brandishing a gun and a knife — handed the clerk a bag and told him to fill it with money. When the employee opened the bag, he saw that it contained Oreo cookies and a bottle of Mountain Dew, according to Jacksonville Sheriff’s Sergeant Harvey Baker IV. The clerk put $60 in the bag and the suspect took off on a bicycle, Baker says.

Being that the suspect was riding a bicycle and deputies were driving cars, authorities had little trouble catching up to him and taking him into custody. There’s been no word yet on charges.

Is going to prison worth $60? What would be worth going to prison for?
