The Taco Truck of the Future

Bearman Cartoon Wired Magazine Taco Truck of the Future

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

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

  2. WannabeHero says:

    Funny stuff. Voted! Good luck, man.

  3. Roland says:

    Nobody will know if that smell is from the ingredients or the port-a-potty

  4. Corve says:

    very funny… this

    This is damning

  5. Bo Lumpkin says:

    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.

  6. Brad says:

    It’s a one stop shop!

  7. They get you coming and going…..

  8. gallowaygrave says:

    By 2025 the vehicles (both) will be horse drawn (pulled NOT sketched)…


  9. Ron-Yves says:

    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…

    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 😉

  11. DadaHyena says:

    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!

  12. lynn says:

    i voted but how do i know my vote counted? good luck!

  13. Jande says:

    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.

  14. Rafa says:

    Hahaha, I think your truck design can be made before 2025, is a great idea
    and of course.. voted!

  15. MJ says:

    Ha! That’s hilarious.

  16. nursemyra says:

    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….

    • Bearman says:

      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

      • Walker says:

        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.
        Good luck.

  17. danineteen says:

    Mmm, I’m craving tacos now.

  18. jb says:

    I hope that ain’t where the meat for the tacos comes from. If it is we’re gonna need pleanty of hot sause.

  19. Scott Oglesby says:

    Haha perfect. And they should start giving coupons for Mexican food with every prescription of opiates.

  20. jammer5 says:

    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.

  21. Jande says:

    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. ;`)

  22. It’s about time somebody prepared for Montezuma! I voted for you. Please return the favor on November 6, 2012. 🙂

  23. Tony says:

    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…

  24. Tony says:

    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 not Mexico, I also voted up Taco Cat. I liked that one too…

  25. susi spice says:

    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?

  26. Dan says:

    If that truck were ever rear-ended it would be the worst accident scene in the history of the automobile.

  27. Gruff Guano says:

    Voted. I’m the infamous n°18 registered pro voter.

  28. Friggin Loon says:

    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 🙁

  29. SpilledInkGuy says:

    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. 🙂

  30. susi spice says:

    haha i came back again and all i could see was homer simpson in that episode shouting out “wheres my buritto! wheres my buritto!”

  31. Bo Lumpkin says:

    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.

  32. Chris W. says:

    Upvoted! I also may have passed out a few downvotes for a few other candidates… ::evil grin::

  33. George says:

    I got’cha! This was a great ‘toon and idea.

  34. RogerAD says:

    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 😉

    • Bearman says:

      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.

  35. Duncanr says:

    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 😆

  36. 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

  37. Dr. Cynicism says:

    Okay… most awesome comic EVER.
