At Last, the Complete Set of Mexican Emojis in One Image


I’m almost certain that the readers of this blog will be able to identify all of these (otherwise, shame on you!). Needless to say, this blogger’s favorites are El subcomandante, the torta and the trompo al pastor.

Still, hit me with questions (i.e. leave a comment below) if:

1) You fail to identify all of these

2) You think there are some missing

HappyLetL Friday!

This Latino Car Dealership in California Wants you to Buy a Nissan, Bash Donald Trump

Tómala, Tómala....

Tómala, Tómala….

The world’s awesomest car dealership has produced the world’s awesomest commercial, in which we see the dealership’s general manager bashing a Donald Trump piñata, after which he declares:

Aquí en Van Nuys Nissan, los latinos mandan.” (“Here at Van Nuys Nissan, Latinos rule.”)

This blogger thinks this commercial should win a Lion at Cannes or something. Alas, the corporate suits over at Nissan Motor Co. have decided to distance the company from the ad, because… corporations.

So, boooooo, Nissan. Don’t be surprised if the next piñata my people come up with is one of your own Carlos Ghosn.

I know, Red, I feel your pain…

Mexican Entrepreneurship Knows no Limits


For the monolingual crowd: This auto repair shop in Mexico City is called “El Chapo,” simply because it specializes in car exhaust systems (escapes in Spanish.)

Bravo, bravo!
