This cartoon was inspired by Wired Magazine. Each month in their issue they ask readers to consider what different products will look like in the future. Then, they combine all the most popular elements into a feature on the final page.
This month they asked what the Taco Truck of the Future would look like in 2025. When you combine mystery taco meat and rolling food carts, I don’t think this truck should wait that long. They need to start production right away.
So help me out and upvote it on their site. They don’t make it easy to find my entry but here is what you need to do.
1. Go to this page on Wired.com
2. Scroll down to the entries and by “Show Entries that are” select “new”
3. You should see my cartoon as one of the first. Depending on your screen settings you may need to scroll the box right to see the arrows.
4. Click the up arrow and viola….er voila (or for you non french Wa Lah!)
Truth in advertising
That’s what I try to aim for.
Funny stuff. Voted! Good luck, man.
Thanks. I think I need you to draw my bears going forward. Love that Ninja Bear.
Better or worse than my duck picture caption on your site?
Nobody will know if that smell is from the ingredients or the port-a-potty
It kind of “runs” together.
very funny…..love this
This is damning
“This is Damning” Is that some cool term you youngen’s are using these days?
I love it. My computer at work is acting up I guess. I could only see the top of your comic and I couldn’t get to the place to vote. I will keep trying though. Great concept.
Well if you didn’t have a 28.8K modem, things might work out better.
I found the problem. I was running low on coal and my boiler was not hot enough.
Steam modems are the green technology of the future.
Mine has certainly turned green but I thought it was just mold.
It’s a one stop shop!
No..then you would need a hammock to take a nap due to food coma.
They get you coming and going…..
Well maybe…if they put a dollar fee on the portalet.
By 2025 the vehicles (both) will be horse drawn (pulled NOT sketched)…
…not if the price of horses keep sky rocketing 🙂
Why…are they using them for meat?
Did you peek? Someone had that concept on the wired site.
I confess, I looked around a bit…
I’m glad you clarified that. There is enough competition without having drawing horses.
I frequent a Taco Truck in the red-light district of my town—no porta-shitter but they once offered me one of those enormous taco-shells used for taco-salads and a free napkin when I was in a pinch…
Your picture troubles me though—the shitter is like, 3 feet away from the guacamole which is located toward the rear of the vehicle…there could be cross-contamination…
Blah blah blah. All I heard was that you frequent the red light district in your town.
It’s southern NH though—the Red Light District essentially means that there’s a woman that forgot to put on a bra that morning—and she needs 25-cents for the parking meter…that’s as far as it goes…
Least you could do is buy her a taco too.
Been and voted, Bearman
Hey, I tried to cheat and vote twice but the sneaky buggers rumbled me – my 2nd vote cancelled out my 1st, so I had to vote again (which means I voted 3 times just to record one vote )
Don’t worry though, the site is obviously tracking IP Numbers of voters, I’m on my way back to vote again using some of the other laptops and desktops I’ve got here 😉
same here duncan… okay yeah so i am as sneaky as you, so what? 🙂 :-)(since bearman likes it when i use smilies)
I don’t need you two cheating and telling the world that you cheat. I don’t want to get disqualified..:>
Oh, good Lord….Bearman has outdone himself.
…and it gets worse if you want to think of where that Taco Van keeps its “refried beans”. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
Maybe I should have drawn a pipe leading from the portapotty back to the van.
i voted but how do i know my vote counted? good luck!
Same could be said trying to vote in Florida.
Meh! Wouldn’t let me vote. Both up and down arrows are greyed out. :`[
Great cartoon though! Awesome concept. Now add a payphone and Wi-fi and we’d have it made.
Nah…don’t you know all those restaurants that offer wifi are taking them out b/c people just hang out and don’t order anything.
Heh. Wired Freeloaders. Aught to haul them off to the port-a-potties!
Hahaha, I think your truck design can be made before 2025, is a great idea
and of course.. voted!
Ha! That’s hilarious.
I voted. But do you think the counter is working properly? It went from 2 to 3 when I pressed the up arrow but judging by the amount of comments here you would have received far more votes than it’s showing….
Looks like you voted on the one that linked from Flickr that wouldn’t show up for me.
There is another one that people are voting on. That is unless you hit the down arrow haha
I did as you instructed, vote was #14, but i’m wondering if i need to find a different, non-Flickr one? Will go back and browse around.
That was the one. The correct one was the one that said something like “Guess flickr doesn’t work”
Mmm, I’m craving tacos now.
eeeeeeewww. I think I’ll wait a week.
Yeah good idea, don’t wanna eat it while the meat is too fresh. Ya have to let it rest so the
moldflavour develops. Kinda like good matured cheese
Now I am really getting sick.
I hope that ain’t where the meat for the tacos comes from. If it is we’re gonna need pleanty of hot sause.
Just pour the hot sauce on your tongue first to deaden your taste buds.
Haha perfect. And they should start giving coupons for Mexican food with every prescription of opiates.
Sure to help balance the constipation.
Great cartoon, bearman . . . but wrong 🙁
My brother-in-law, Terry, and I used to go to Tijuana regularly. One thing people would warn us about was to never eat food off the street vendor carts. We basically ignored them and would get ceviche, many times shrimp, or mystery-meat tacos. Not once did we get the runs or any other adverse effect, and the food was always outstanding.
You just have an iron stomach. I eat at the carts strictly as a colon cleanse.
Driving down the highway with your butt sticking out the window is a drag, literally, isn’t it?
Ok, tried to vote again this morning and even though they were greyed out, when I clicked the up arrow the number changed from 14 to 15. Yay!
You deserve to win with that entry. It’s pretty whacko funny. ;`)
Thanks Jande. I wonder if I will get in trouble for having you all ballot stuff.
It’s about time somebody prepared for Montezuma! I voted for you. Please return the favor on November 6, 2012. 🙂
You just have to make sure you get on the ballot.
We don’t have Taco Trucks here in Tasmania, I guess we’re too far from the Mexican Border to do the run. A Taco Ship or aeroplane maybe…
Well this one was about Taco Trucks but there are all types of food trucks popping up around here.
I just went & voted you UP. 3 scumbags have voted you down so far, can you believe that??? They must’ve been overly sensitive Mexicans, or non-Mexicans who dislike spicy food.
I must confess that while I was there, at Wired.com not Mexico, I also voted up Taco Cat. I liked that one too…
Taco cat is good too. I think it was one of my own scumbags I sent over there.
bahhahahha nice… just dont have them driving up and down the border cause itll be a good cover.
ps where is my banner gone!?? 🙁 i am unbanneredfriended?
What are you talking about? You are still there
If that truck were ever rear-ended it would be the worst accident scene in the history of the automobile.
Saying rear ended…would that be redundant?
Voted. I’m the infamous n°18 registered pro voter.
Thanks. You know with a name like Guano, I figure this cartoon would be right up your alley.
The loo is my natural habitat, so when I travel, nothing is more comfortable than a mobile can on a trailer.
Why do I now have an image of an RV with a coffee can on it.
Quick copyright the idea Bearman, I can see several fast food chains using this idea.
Psst Slow on the uptake this week Bearman. Friggin life just keeps getting in the way 🙁
I figured you were just on vacation again. Or drinking with Susi.
I will be next Friday. Expect another absence from Susi and I 🙁
I thought you could hold your liquor unlike her.
Once I had a message on my phone that: “the porta-potty is ready to be picked up – we’re leaving for the day but it’ll be sitting outside the fence”.
I get some pretty random calls. And I leave some pretty random comments. 🙂
Was that a message someone else left or your outgoing message to those that called you?
haha i came back again and all i could see was homer simpson in that episode shouting out “wheres my buritto! wheres my buritto!”
You watch more Simpsons than me. I don’t remember that one.
I was finally able to vote but I had to take my laptop to the Library to do it. See how much trouble I go to just to make you famous.
Only when all of Gatorhead knows my name.
Upvoted! I also may have passed out a few downvotes for a few other candidates… ::evil grin::
Evil. Do you do that on Reddit too when you post something..haha
I got’cha! This was a great ‘toon and idea.
Done and Done, looks like you are doing pretty good over at wired too.
It really isn’t even all that bad of an idea, because I bet there are a lot of people that stop at McDonald’s, or whatever, simply to goto the bathroom. So, having a portapotty makes sense. You would just have to make sure people don’t use it without buying a taco and you are good to go 😉
Maybe you have to insert your reciept into the door mechanism or it is coded. Good to see you over here Roger. Thanks for stopping in.
Shit in – shit out
Pretty much sums it up really
You must be on a winner here !!!
P.S. Hey I like that Chris W. – bugger’s even sneakier than me. Just off now to go nobble some of your competitors 😆
ok. that was high-larious.
you should also have some sort of first aid kit for when they get shot in the ass by the border patrol
Okay… most awesome comic EVER.
