About

Taco threadjacking is a recent trend in FARK’s Politics tab comments that involves sabotaging bipartisan debates by posting irrelevant pictures of delicious tacos. Whenever controversial topics--especially those involving Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin or Cordoba House--arise in the FARK forums, it may be assumed that such discussion will soon derail into the virtues of tacos. For an example, see following Fark Politics tab thread.

Origin

On August 31, 2010 in a thread about Sarah Palin, the trolls were at it again, so fed up one farker posted a picture of a taco. The tacos in comments and pictures started popping up as the trolls kept trolling. New memes were being made, some of which incorporated both Sarah Palin and tacos, some referring to her vagina as a taco, as well as one which called out a specific user, which many FARK LibTards consider the King of the FARK ReTarded Trolls.

A FARK Moderator deleted the entirety of the taco memes, even the Palin incorporated ones. The thread went ablaze with fiery dissent over the removal. The Moderator that deleted the content engaged the angry Farkers and their pitchforks, explaining that threadjacking and calling specific users out by user name is prohibited.

Development

The discussion itself turned into a threadjack about threadjacking, threadshitting, and trolls. Farkers began complaining about how the Moderators protect the bait trolls, racist trolls, troll mods, and general thread stupidity. Farkers felt that if the trolls could threadjack to start arguments, why couldn’t they do it in a way that was constructive and fun. Again, the FARK LibTards hadn’t had all their questions answered to clarity, and this time there would be a food fight.

Tacos and Taco-Palin memes began popping up in other Sarah Palin threads first, followed by being reposted in the original thread they were taken down from. The assertion was made that Tacos had just as much to do with Politics as Sarah Palin ever since she left office for Showbiz. “Palin is to politics, as taco is to politics, except taco doesn’t quit” posted one FARK LibTard. “Taco is Palin, Palin is Taco” posted another. The next day tacos, taco references, and new ‘Palin is Taco’ memes popped up.

On FARK.com, Sarah Palin, trolls and mods alike are now met with taco’s, because seriously, who doesn’t like tacos?

Competition: Grilled Cheese Sandwich

A rising faction seems to be backing the grilled cheese sandwich, however. Expect a fight between a grilled cheese sandwich and a taco.
