When is a free taco not a free taco?

So the rumor is that the Boston Red Sox might trade Jacoby (I won America a free taco) Ellsbury to the Minnesota Twins for their awesome pitcher Johan (I never won anybody a taco) Santana.

Somehow this trade seems a bit one-sided.

Last year The Red Sox WON the World Series and America won free tacos all without Johan Santana.

And now we want to trade that away?

Why on earth as a fan should I be happy about this? Because Johan (No free tacos) Santana is awesome? If Johan (NFT) Santana is so awesome why don't I get free tacos?

Why?

Because maybe he's not so awesome.

If he was awesome he would include free tacos, correct? And free tacos are awesome, correct? And Jacoby (I'll win ya some more free tacos) Ellsbury is awesome.

SO TO SUM UP:

Do not trade my free tacos for not free tacos.

Clearly somebody in Red Sox management is a tacophobe and should be weeded out, tasered, and fired.

I'd do the dirty work but I'm afraid we're snowed in here. I volunteer The Lois Boys!

You'll get a bag of chips. It's in Jacoby's contract.

I'm on it! I'm putting boots and snowgear on the little maniacs right now and sending them to Yawkey Way.

If they're successful, can they get cookies instead of tacos?

I'm about to walk home in a snowy winter wonderland, Sparkle...let's hope you haven't just foretold what's gonna happen to me when I step out the front door.

(If I'm hospitalized, though, at least I'll get all the tacos I can eat...they come free with our medical care here, it's true.)

We all told him to stop wearing that goat costume. But would he listen? Nooooooooo.

Ah well. Any tacos left?

NoOprah's a chupacabra loving furry?
