This Is Why I'm Gonna Be Fatter: Burrito Vending Machine

Note: If you haven't noticed from my lack of posting, I'm sick today and took everything in my medicine cabinet so I should either be better or dead by tomorrow.

This is BurritoBox, a vending machine just rolled out in West Hollywood that dispenses hot burritos in 60-seconds. You can choose from five different burritos: shredded beef and cheese, roasted potato egg and cheese, chicken and rice, chorizo egg and cheese, and bacon egg and cheese. You do not get to choose the severity of your diarrhea afterwards.

Each costs $3, excluding tax and additional toppings. A side of sour cream costs an extra 50 cents, while Tabasco sauce is 65 cents and a guacamole is available for 75 cents.

Weird, I swear this already existed. Oh right -- the microwave at 7-11. Plus that one doesn't just dispense burritos, you can put anything in there! Granted sometimes the man behind the counter will yell at you, but if you're quick you really can put anything in there. One time I nuked a Slurpee, it's true!

Keep going for a video of the machine while you wonder if LA really needs a burrito machine when there's already a taco truck on ever corner.

Thanks to Thaylor H, who agrees a vending machine you have to drive to loses a significant portion of its convenience factor. Redbox, okay.
