Some people really have an on camera talent
I couldn’t make this stuff up if I wanted.
Venezuelan TV host Yuvi Pallares thought it was an awesome idea to get naked as she reported the news about Cristiano Ronaldo dating Playboy model Daniella Chávez.
Don’t be too shock, though. The stunt is fairly common — and pretty much the Raison d’être of Desnundando la Noticia, a Venezuelan “nude-delivering news service.”
NOTE: I’m filing this under Latin American TV journalism and saving my sarcastic remarks for later. (See? I’m busy NOT being that kind of reporter right now).
Just WATCH. Cringe. Repeat (or not.)

Let’s print some guacamole containers, shall we?
Cinco de Mayo (aka this blogger’s favorite faux holiday) is just around the corner, and this year — with the explosion of Twitter, Snapchat, Periscope, Instagram and the like — the marketing furor promises to be crazier than ever before. Muy loco, indeed!
Stay tuned for this blog’s full “coverage” of this year’s non-Mexican holiday. In the meantime, take a look at this kit offered by Paper & Cake and start printing your own fiesta kit.
Tiny boy has huge demand
April 26 marked the seventh month since the disappearance of 43 students in Ayotzinapa, Guerrero, Mexico. And while the Mexican government has declared the investigation as “case closed,” Mexicans around the world continue to demand one thing: Vivos se los llevaron, vivos los queremos (They were taken alive; we want them back alive.)
Mexicans and non-Mexicans in New Yorker gathered today to pay homage to the 43, and we were lucky enough to be joined by six of the many parents who were left childless from this state-sanctioned murder.
I was there Sunday as people gathered in New York City’s iconic Washington Square Park before walking all the way up to the U.N. Building. I’ve been to all the Ayotzinapa events before in the city and this was — by far — the one that attracted the most people (around 500 by police estimates.)
I took some photos and wanted to share with y’all here:
Never underestimate the power of American engineering
Remember the MexiCannon?
Well, that is nothing compared to what American engineers have come up with now.
Meet the Taco Cannon.
According to a report on KETV7 Omaha (which apparently is a real city) the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks will soon introduce a taco cannon to ‘spice up’ their games. The contraption (which I bet is Made in China) is supposed to shoot tacos — or what people in Nebraska think are tacos — out in the air for spectators to enjoy. But, as a local journalist very cleverly asks: “How can tacos become something you can shoot out from a cannon?”
Well, Taco Cannon enthusiasts/sponsors have the answer: “I wouldn’t say [the taco] will be restaurant quality once it gets to them, but it’s edible.”
I don’t know about you but I am not looking forward to being hit in the head –not even by a bad taco. But the Omaha taco chain which is sponsoring the thing seems to be pretty excited.
