CBS 12 in Cape Giradueu, MO reports that a woman celebrated her 101st birthday at Taco Bell, where she eats weekly.

Ruth Parker from Carbondale, Illinois celebrated her 101st birthday at the Taco Bell location that she has been visiting for the past 18 years. Ruth has been a regular guest at the location twice a week (Tuesday & Fridays) and she also celebrates every birthday there. The employees at the “Bell” know Ruth well and she has also formed a very tight bond with the manager.

Ruth says she’s sampled everything on the menu and that she’s currently, “... hooked on the new Nacho Fries”.

Maybe Taco Bell should think about incorporating Ruth into their advertising campaign with a slogan like: “Taco Bell… The Red Bull Of Centenarians.”
