According to a fire department PowerPoint presentation entitled “Food Trucks: A Transient Hazard,” obtained by the research group Public Intelligence, everyones favorite mobile eateries represent a serious terrorist threat to our city. In tersely-worded bullet points, the presentation unveils the threat of trucks’ “black market” permits, locations in high-foot-traffic areas, potential use as surveillance vehicles, and, in one hilariously urgent point, colored red for emphasis, that food truck “numbers are expected to increase.” They’re coming for us!

The report also lists some perhaps more realistic, unintentional culinary threats posed by the trucks, including “explosion–presence of multiple propane cylinders,” “shock–from high voltage electricity,” and “burn–hot fryer oil and grills.” Yikes.
