Yep. I've taco'd a wheel or two as well. Never fun but yeah, you have to laugh after and go, "that was AWESOME". I couldn't stop smiling after my first taco endo. I've straightened them with a mallet too when I've needed to get home from someone;s house. I wouldn't rely on it though. Something about a wheel that was bent nearly in half(exageration) that makes me think it has to have fatigued and can't possibly be as strong as before. You should keep the hub if it's nice and get it relaced to a new rim. Maybe a Rhynolite, or something beefy. Freeride even.
