A Diabetes tree has risen in the middle of Mexico City
Here we go again.
Barely one year after Coca-Cola unleashed the fury of this blogger — and many, many more people — with a ridiculous holiday commercial set in Oaxaca, the beverage giant is on the hot seat again.
The reason? Mexico City officials have allowed the company to put up a gigantic Coca-Cola-themed Christmas tree right in the middle of the city’s main square.
The offending, plasticky huge thing is now being labelled by activists as the Diabetes Tree, which is just a perfect way to “celebrate” the deathly toll the disease has taken on my people.
So, as the suits over at Coca-Cola would say: Feliz Navidad, suckers!

Claudia Ruiz Massieu was the lucky winner of the country’s 2016 #RetoGuacamole
Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Affairs, beat a bunch of other cabinet members in the challenging task of… preparing a guacamole.
The stunt, known in social media simply as the Guacamole Challenge (#RetoGuacamole) officially kicked off the 2016 edition of the nation’s Food Show. This blogger can only anticipate some great diplomacy coming from her birth country in the next few years, as our leaders prepare to face the Orange Clown.

Awwww, Mexico: Home of the world’s best food and now world-class diplomacy.
The following video features senators from the PRD as they celebrate a typical Mexican posada.
Watch as they kindly ask Trump to go fuck himself beforee proceeding to chant the now infamous ¡Eeeeeeeeehh putoooo!

Before you go all crazy on me, let me clarify one thing: I did not invent the above awesomeness — of course. I have been busy taking siestas, eating tacos and sipping tequila (I’m Mexican, remember?) to be working on such an elaborate work of art.
Thank God I have the entire World Wide Web working for me to serve you people better.
So, without further ado: ¡Feliz Navidad! ahead of time; to get this out of the güey.
Ok, not everything sucks this 2016.
UNESCO this week declared Mexican charrería as “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.”
For the uninitiated — and especially for those who think Mexicans are offended by sombreros — charrería is a traditional practice dedicated to the breeding and grazing of cattle on horseback.
From the series “Mexicans Are a Resourceful and Surreal Bunch” comes Primary School Elvira Vega Delgado in Sinaloa, where children are being encouraged to wear hard hats (motorcycle helmets are OK; construction ones even better) during class.
The reason? The classroom’s walls, ceiling and overall construction is pretty screwed up, so you never know when the whole thing will come crashing down on your child’s head.
Aren’t my people (i.e. The Mexicans) the most resourceful, awesome bunch?
