My word, Taco Time offering Tamales now....I can only shudder

Although not Latino, I have a great respect for Mexican and Hispanic culture, and Taco Time (a local Northwest chain) distinguishes itself by offering half hearted imitations of Mexican food that truly scrape the bottom of the barrel in terms of authenticity. Witness "Mexican Fries", which are Tater Tots served with salsa. Tamales are an art form, and I'm expecting Taco Time to offer something resembling a kind of Frankenstein concoction of semi-Tamaleness. Will they use corn, or will they use some other grain?
