I've been on many a picket line, and what tends to happen is the whole community comes out in support of a strike: local bakeries offer free coffee and donuts, and area restaurants often stop by in the afternoon with foodstuffs. It's just the right thing to do. Taco Bell, that purveyor of food for harried workingmen everywhere, will do no such thing, according to Trading Markets. Instead, they are offering striking screenwriters the "chance to win free Taco Bell food by injecting fun and fresh bits of wisdom into the restaurant chain's iconic Border Sauce packets." They want them to work for free, basically, for the chance to win about $260 worth of food.

"Up to 10 wisdoms will be selected and hundreds of millions will be printed and appear in Taco Bell restaurants this Fall." How about a paycheck, you sleazy PR-addicted hacks? We'll see you in hell. Examples of previous proverbs:

The road to mediocrity is littered with empty ketchup packets.

Nice palm. I read a great deal of pleasure in your future.

Use your stomach, nacho mind.

If you throw this, would it be a flying saucer?

When I grow up, I want to be a waterbed.
