This is why you check your takeout before you leave the restaurant: According to the AP, a Georgia man ordered two XXL Chalupas from his local Taco Bell and was dismayed when he got home to find the fillings not XXL as advertised but XL, or possibly even just (gasp) L. When the man called the Taco Bell to complain, he was informed that the store would be closing soon and the manager couldn't help him out.

Oh, no worries, the guy then offered to stop by and "redecorate the place." So he went back at 4AM, hurled a Molotov cocktail-esque explosive at the restaurant's drive-thu window, and totally flubbed the throw. In the end, he just hit the building, causing very minor damage. Apparently such behavior is frowned upon? So police are trying to find the man in order to bring him to taco justice.
