Mexican Food Shit (Mexican Shits; Taco Shits; Screamers)

Mexican food has resulted in some scatalogical language, such as “Mexican food shit” or “Mexican shits,” “Mexican food poop,” “Mexican food poo,” “taco shits,” “jalapeƱo asshole” and “screamers.” Most of these terms date to about 1990, when “shit lists” appeared on many internet newsgroups’ joke lists. The film Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (2004) featured a scene involving “taco shits.”

A related saying is “Come on ice cream!”
