‘Le Burrito’ at this French Joint Will Give you ‘Le Diarrhée’


Fresh Burritos, a “fine” establishment in the heart of Lille, France, promises (in French) to serve you 100% Fresh Burritos (in English) and will prepare everything in front of your eyes! (yes, with an exclamation point!)

I was tempted for a minute, but then I realized Le menu looks suspiciously similar to any bad Mexican faire á l’américaine: I’m afraid the 4.90 euro combo of La boisson, les patatas, le cookie and le mini burrito will properly give me Le diarrhée.

… And don’t get me started on the non-descript orange sauce-like thing in the background.

So… merci, but non merci!

El Corrido de Donald Trump by Los Tres Tristes Tigres


Hilarious Mexican trio Los Tres Tristes Tigres have done it again.

Here’s their Donald Trump corrido –in Spanish and sans musical arrangements, because, really, he doesn’t deserve it.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I’m still on vacation so I won’t bother translating this thing right now, though I might do so as soon as I’m off this Greek island….or not.

Univision to Donald Trump: ‘Hasta la Vista, Baby!’

TrumpMexicansWell, that was fast.

Barely five months after Donald Trump announced he was dumping Telemundo to join forces with Univision for the Miss Universe pageant, the Hispanic media giant decided it was just too much to partner with such a bocón.

According to a statement put out by Univision Communications Inc. on Thursday:

Today, the entertainment division of Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the Company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants. At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country. We will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12th or working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization.
