Reddit users worldwide went loco for the opportunity to ask the president of Taco Bell anything. Naturally, the chat room was filled with sarcasm, but Brian Niccol—celebrating the launch of Taco Bell’s breakfast menu—proved he could hold his own with the trolls. Now that the crumbs have settled, The Daily Beast takes a look at some of the funniest questions—and best answers—from the Taco Bell AMA.

Q: What’s the worst thing about being the president of Taco Bell?

A: It is the greatest job ever. Only thing better would be CEO…

Q: Only to America? When is [breakfast] coming to Canada? 

A: When you take Justin Bieber back. 

Q: No question, just a heartfelt request. Please bring back the Bellbeefer!

A: I’m terribly sorry. That is not happening anytime soon.

Q: What’s really in your “meat”? 

A: This is going to surprise you…our beef is beef with wonderful seasonings and I eat it every day. 

Q: Can you tell me why most fast food chains serve ONLY breakfast until a certain hour, and will you be avoiding this ridiculous policy? Sometimes I just want a damn big mac at 7am, I don’t see why this should be impossibe. 

A: We would love to serve Breakfast all day, but in order to make the food great and get you in and out quickly we need to serve from 7am to 11am. Just so you know, you can get anything you love on the Taco Bell menu beginning at 9am or 10am depending where you live.

Q: Does Taco Bell support the current legalization of marijuana? I figured it might be something you guys would have a vested interest in :)

A: We make tacos, not laws.

Q: How much have your sales increased in Colorado since the legalization of marijuana? 

A: 420% (But seriously what is 4/20?)

Q: Is there some type of dream food you would want to add to the menu, but haven’t had a chance to yet? 

A: Cerveza.

Q: Is there a tomb for the chihuahua where I can pay my respects?
