This may be old news, but has anyone else looked at the mural inside of Taqueria Vallarta on 16th and Mission? I mean *really* looked at it? Right in the middle panel of, what appears to be a fairly standard painting of Mayan culture, is a UFO beaming Jesus down to Earth in all his haloed glory.
To be fair, I haven't done any research on the Mayans or their beliefs since the 5th grade, but you would think one would remember the part about alien Jesus teaching the Mayans about math and sculpting giant heads out of rock. So I took it upon myself to dig a little deeper into the truth behind the mural. After consulting the experts on this sort of thing, I learned something new today: This totally happened, 2012 will bring Earth to a whole new level of enlightenment (and inclusion in the Federation of the Universe!!), and the artist at Vallarta should be hailed a hero.
Also, the veggie burritos at Vallarta are pretty legit. Go eat there.
