Paywall’d

But I will say, the opening paragraph IS more or less correct. Jack in the Box tacos are awful and weird, like some deep-fried hellscape mingling its unholy cafeteria-grade meat byproduct with a slice of orange processed-cheese-like-approximation-of-food into some eldritch notion of taste and texture that would surely repulse any sane human with a working palate. But somehow, I am drawn to it, by forces so perverse, so clearly of alien origin that mere contemplation sets one’s skin a-crawl. And despite my full knowledge of the horror that awaits me, I order… and I eat. God help me, I eat all of it.

Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn!
