A beloved Taco Bell in Montgomery, Alabama burned down in the early hours of January 17th. What happened next was unexpected and whimsical.
Mourners showed up to express their sadness at the destruction of their favorite fast food joint with a candlelight vigil. The idea started on Facebook as a joke and eventually became a reality. A local comedian performed a parody routine and many attendees expressed their sadness.
Some of the truest words spoken as regards to the tragedy were by mourner Shaw Gibbons:
“When McDonalds failed me, you lifted me up. When Sonic was closed, you filled my cup. When Arby’s went dark, you made me smile. Your quesadillas sustained me mile after mile.”
