It’s a sad day in Alaska. There were no polar bears invading, people didn’t go crazy from all the sunlight on the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, nor did Sarah Palin announce she was going home.
Nope, the bad news is that the town of Bethel will not get a Taco Bell, as they hoped. The entire town is the victim of a cruel hoax. It seems someone spread around flyers promising free gorditas from a Taco Bell promising to open before July 4.
