These things are amazing.
This is your average hard taco shell...
...but this is the "Stand'n'Stuff"...
Eureka! It's got a flat bottom! You can actually put more than one and a half ounces of taco stuff in there! What's more, because you can stand them up on their flat bottoms on the baking sheet, they don't compress under the combined influence of oven heat and their own formidible weight, becoming the corn-equivalent of a clam shell!
It's a whole new world, people. Taco technology is finally catching up with the likes of pizza technology (self-rising crust, holy smokes!) and cheese technology (pre-shredded, wow!).
Next on the horizon: a salsa jar you can actually get all the salsa out of. Oh, to shoot for the moon and reach the stars instead! ;)
from pmkpmk's link:
a holder for up to three (3) or more tacos which clips onto the edge of most any typical dinner or serving plate
This invention is pure genius. This person should get some sort of Nobel Prize. The holder clips onto the side of your PLATE! So you can use your plate for actually eating the taco! And your tacos-in-waiting don't lay on their sides (although the previously mentioned ingenuity behind the Stand'n'Stuff taco shell solves this little conundrum, as well), spilling precious taco-mana into the chilling taco graveyard of the dinner plate. Amazing. Why, oh why, am I doomed to be the inventee and never the inventor*?
and you could make them at home
That's a typical WebmasterWorld response, right there. Never pay someone else to do something you can rewire your current technology to do at home.
I bet you run your own server, don't you? ;)
*I know, I know. As an "inventee" that would mean the taco clip guy invented me, which he clearly did not do, as I can hold only two tacos upright at a time whereas his invention holds "three or more".
Buy soft corn tortillas, and put them in the oven for a bit hanging on some kind of square support (hang them over the oven rack bars for a regular shell) and you could make them at home.
Try a bar-b-que rib rack [images.google.com], look for one thats straight, the angled ones would give you oblique tacos.
I propose having the sides closed in to contain the flow, with convenient taco juice gutters which control flow out the sides.
and instead of the flat bottom, I've added some little buttress feet to keep it upright.
this reminds me of the half-bakery [halfbakery.com]
