Tortilla FAQ

Why are you doing this?

By far the most frequent question I get, and also the strangest.  In my opinion, when one comes across a tortilla in a plastic bag with a message written on it taped up in public, NOT taking a photo is by far the more perverse reaction.  How could you not want to take a photo of it and share it with your friends?  The simple answer is, I like these tortillas.  They’re fun, sometimes hilarious, and a little bit mischievous.  I’ve got a group of people who also like these tortillas, and documenting them is part game, part labor of love.

Is it art?

What else could it be?

I found one! What do I do?

Leave the tortilla where it is.  Snap a photo if you have a photo-taking device with you, and note the location.  The best photos show the writing on the bag clearly.  Report to the Facebook group and post the photo with the location.  Wait patiently and bask in the admiration of your peers.

I hate tortillas and everything they stand for.

It’s fascinating to see how polarizing the tortillas can be.  We enjoy the tortillas.  If you don’t, that’s fine too.  You don’t have to participate in these shenanigans.  All we ask is that if you see one, leave it where it is to increase the likelihood that one of us will find it.  See?  We can all be neighborly!

I think you are putting the tortillas up yourselves.

I’m with you, man.  We are not willing to rule out the possibility that the Tortilla Bomber is a member of our merry band; in fact we think it’s pretty likely he at least reads the Facebook page, based on the incident at the First Tortilla Meet Up.

How do we find out who the Tortilla Bomber is?

We don’t know!  We do have a lead, though.  We received word (by tortilla) that “more would be revealed” at 200 tortillas found, and that “all would be revealed” at 600 members on the Facebook group.  So the best way to keep up-to-date on all tortilla related news is to become a part of the Facebook group… that’s where all the action is.
