Nerdist Week at BBCAmerica.com: Believe in the Burrito
By Perry Michael Simon on September 21, 2011
You knew we were gonna get to the burrito episode.
Yes, as we count down Five Nerdist Podcasts That Shook the World over at BBC America’s Anglophenia blog, the true origin of “Enjoy Your Burrito” had to be on the list. Certainly, I heard it from enough folks. So, today’s post over there is about the Rainn Wilson episode which includes, at the 56-minute mark, Jonah relating the story of what he then called “believe in the burrito” but which has since become our rallying cry, our motto, our E Pluribus Unum. And, yes, the picture above is the Actual Location of Jonah’s Actual Burrito; I happen to live not far from it, so I just stopped by and took a picture. I did not, alas, have time for a burrito, and without time to savor it, what good would it be? I’m not even living our own philosophy. Sigh.
Go read the post at BBCAmerica.com, listen again to the podcast below, and remember that this whole exercise is all about getting the word out that the Nerdist TV special is on BBC America on Saturday, September 24th at 10/9c. So get the word out, please. Thank you, and enjoy… you know.
