Ever Wondered Why Some Latin American Wines Taste Like Shit?

This literally means 'Little Assholes'. Ewww...

This literally means ‘Little Assholes’. Ewww…

Remember that hot Latinas wine?

Well, there’s even a better — or, rather, worse — version of that thing. It is called “Culitos” (literally “Little Assholes”) and I will not be buying it any time soon.

¡Guácala!

Little Ass wine, anybody?

Little Ass wine, anybody?

Jeb Bush Can Tell if Someone Hails from Colombia, Not Columbia; Has Wife Named Columba

Jeb Bush with [tiny] Mexican wife, Columba

It is not a huge secret that Jeb Bush has a pretty decent command of the Spanish language. And now, thanks to the New York Times, we also know he’s also good at guessing the Latin American country where a person is from based on his/her accent.

Per an a March 29, 2015 article:

HUDSON, N.H. — As Jeb Bush mingled with Hispanic workers on a company tour a few weeks ago on his first trip here as an all-but-declared candidate for president, he was able to guess the region in Colombia where one woman was born just from hearing her accent.

He should know better.

While many politicians — and pretty much most “regular Americans”– insist on confusing Colombia with Columbia –and viceversa — something like that would simply be an unforgivable and goofy mistake for a man whose Mexican wife goes by the name of –what else?– Columba.

Editor’s Note: Depending on the success -or not- of Jeb Bush’s campaign for 2016, this blogger will be launching a new category: #ItsColumbaNotColumbia

Latina Bloggers Now Come with a Dose of Tabasco Sauce

 The SuperLatina host and her company, AGANARmedia, attended Hispanicize hand in hand with Tabasco.

Per this poster, SuperLatina host has been appointed Official Correspondent of Tabasco sauce — for some reason.

OK, shame on me, but given the fact they will never invite me again, my very busy schedule, this year I was not able to attend Hispanicize, that smoochfest between Mommy Bloggers and their Corporate Sugar Daddys I once had the fortune to witness.

However, thanks to the power of Internet — and online press releases — I was able to follow closely the details of the 2015 edition of Hispanicize, including a very important piece of news: Gaby Natale, the blogger aka SuperLatina was at hand to “spice up” the Latinovator Award event with “a good dose of Tabasco sauce.” Why?

Per the aforementioned press release:

Hispanicize is like the Latino South by Southwest. If it’s happening, Hispanicize is where you’ll find it. That makes it a perfect fit for Tabasco, a very unique company that blends the traditionalism of a 147-year-old company with a cutting-edge sense of branding

I’ll do my best to try to attend next year, if only to see how far “my spicy background” can get me.

I’ll keep y’all posted, but Shhhhh…. Don’t tell anyone!

Move Over, Celine Dion, Mexico ‘Titanic’ Theme is Way Cooler

Titanic-3D-Movie

If you thought Mexican musicians were only good to cover the likes of Michael Jackson and such, think again.

This awesome pair has come up with a brand new rendition of El Titani, which apparently is “Mexican” for The Titanic and is rightly dedicated to some girl called Jazmín.

Be ready to [slightly] cover your ears and enjoy.

Oh, and just in case you don’t remember how the “original” went, here you go. And please don’t even dare arguing with me about which one is best.

Jimena Sánchez is known as ‘The Mexican Kim Kardashian’

The Internet is an oasis of information, entertainment, endless time-wasting and — more importantly — thought-provoking inquiries.

Take Username_2000, a ‘Daily Mail Online’ reader in Los Angeles, California, who took to that empowering tool known as the “comments box” to ponder a likely burning question upon discovering the existence of Jimena Sánchez, a Mexican sports reporter who has come to be known as The Mexican Kim Kardashian.

Here’s Username_2000’s question as posted in the Daily Mail Online. (I’m leaving this here in case any one of you, loyal followers of this blog, feel like venturing a reply.)

La pregunta del millón

I’m sure he’s still scratching his head. Poor thing.
