Some news that may leave you unsure whether to applaud or duck, to feel hungry or terrified: The University of Nebraska-Omaha has announced that the new $80 million sports arena it is building with many fancy features (cushioned seats, state-of-the-art scoreboards and HD video screens) will also boast … a taco cannon.

Yup, we’re talking about a cannon that shoots tacos, sending them careening through the air in all their messy glory and straight into the hands and mouths of the hungry game-attending crowd.

While it may not be the first taco cannon, like, ever, SB Nation notes, it may well be the first at a sports arena. And, anyway, any taco cannon is cause for celebration. Because … tacos.

But it may also be reason to ever so slightly quake in fear. Voodoo Taco, the Omaha establishment behind the Mexican-food-as-projectile device, recently posted an ominous message on Twitter: “Someone is going to take a taco to the face.”

Yes, they’re soft-shell, but, um … hold the hot sauce?
