Here's a juicy item from the L.A. Weekly blog: L.A.'s well-known Flying Pig food truck, which roams the streets of Tinsel Town distributing tacos that are famous for being, well, moist and juicy, has been loaned out for a porn movie called The Flying Pink Pig. The film, out now and starring porn king Ron Jeremy as Sunny Lane, will be followed soon by a sequel, which also features Lane as the operator of a truck besieged by babes who want more than just a dollop of salsa on their hot tamales. We're no prudes, but we have to wonder where this X-rated trend will go. Are we ready for Daniel Does Dallas? How about The Domino Pizza Boy Really Delivers?The Chicks of Chipotle? or maybe Big Mac's Whopper?
In the end, we have to agree with Mimi Sheraton, former restaurant critic for The New York Times, who, although she was not commenting directly on the new food- porn phenomenon, did sum things up nicely when she told The Huffington Post: "I don't know where they eat it, that's what I can't figure out about a truck. Where the hell do you eat it?"
