Snowed-in Md. woman posts ad for Taco Bell

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story identified the poster “squirrelsoup” as a man. “Squirrelsoup” is a woman.

WASHINGTON – Imagine you have been drinking and you’re stuck inside during a snowstorm without four-wheel drive. Suddenly, you get an insatiable urge for Taco Bell.

What do you do?

Well, of course, you put an ad on Craiglist asking for some help. A woman in Baltimore found herself in this exact situation during the snowstorm that hit earlier this week, Gawker reports.

A portion of her colorful post reads as follows:

“This is maybe 2 miles round trip. I’ll pay in tacos. or chalupas. whatever. Seriously my desire for tacos right now is totally unmanageable, so I’d probably even buy you a 7 layer burrito if you asked nicely.”

The woman, simply known as “squirrelsoup,” blames alcohol in her post for the reason she went all cookie monster for Taco Bell. She even offered to play video games with respondents after, as long as they weren’t rapists, her post says.

Her ad went viral, eventually making it to Reddit before it disappeared on Craigslist.

“Squeirrelsoup” later posted that she eventually made it to Taco Bell and she ordered a “nacho loco taco, a crunchy taco, a soft taco, a chalupa, and some cinnabon bites.”
