The Internet is all a flutter over this kid. This photo of a Taco Bell employee licking a stack of taco shells was posted on Facebook and subsequently shared with the Taco Bell Facebook page.

Taco Bell responded on their Facebook page:

We have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. We believe this is a prank and the food was not served to customers. We are conducting an investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved.

Reaction on the Internet has been predictable. All the rational things have been said like "I'm never eating at Taco Bell again" and "That employee should be executed."

It's gross, but certainly not a capital offense. Easy on the hyperbole, Internet. Sheesh!
