WHY does Taco Hell have its own dictionary?

Now that the kiddo's home, I'm watching a lot more TV, because he does. The newest Taco Hell commercial confused me with its claim of a "textural tase sensation." I googled the phrase, because I am a very busy, highly productive person, and found out that they have a "Word Mash-up" dictionary on their site. It's painfully bad. Samples:
Chillax (v)
Chill out and relax, hang out with friends.

Labradoodle (n)
A cross breed dog. Half poodle, half labrador.

Zlander (n)
Someone who talks badly about a person when they are sleeping.


(Side note: the dictionary gives no definitions, false or otherwise, for "Arab.")

"chillaxin'" is from a will 'fresh prince' smith song, isn't it?

was so sad to see my oft-used "woot" in taco hell's current attempt to keep relevant. :(

"Sprog (v)
To go faster than a jog, but slower than a sprint."
so, wouldn't that be... 'run'?

meh. :/

What's odd is that they left off the one word that legitimately belongs on a list of Taco Bell linguistic mash-ups: "SPORK"! The utensil one uses to eat Pintos & Cheese (49 cents!).

By the way, Labradoodle is in use, I believe. I met some acquaintances once out with their dog, and they identified it as a Labradoodle. Apparently very popular for mellow, smart temperament.

Unless I'm on crack and it was actually a Chia-chow or something.
