Churros de Göteborg

LA Times...

...I wasn't fully prepared for the Swedish taco craze. For one thing, there don't seem to be too many Mexicans here.
You see, here — as in other parts of Europe — Mexican food was not brought over by Mexicans at all. Rather, it was introduced by American TV shows and movies. That explains why there's a "Gringo Special" on the menu at the Taco Bar, a Swedish fast-food chain, and why nearly all the Mexican products in the grocery stores — "Taco Sauce," "Taco Spice Mix" and "Guacamole Dip" — are labeled in English....

My question is, remember those flakizoids who were steamed because KFC might be heading for Baghdad...what do they think about this?

For myself, I confess that, free-trader though I am, there's a little anti-globo inside of me saying, "Wait! Who's in charge here? Shouldn't something be done to stop this??"
