Mexico Beats Korea 2-1 on Second World Cup Match –and Mexican Twitter Does it’s Thing

Mexico claimed their second win of the World Cup as they beat Korea on Saturday. Carlos Vela and Javier Hernández (aka Chicharito) put the goals that made an entire nation sing El Cielito Lindo in tandem. There were, of course, tons of Twitter reactions from my favorite tuiteros mexicanos. Here are some of my faves (though I’ll be updating this through the day.)

Vampipe, of course

Hipster Vegans Want you to Eat an Avocado Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert

This has to stop. Seriously.

Why cut your delicate hands trying to chop open an avocado when you can enjoy the wonders of the fruit without having to resort to a knife –or a tortilla?

That is the promise of Cado, an “avocado-based frozen dessert” crafted by a very white group of vegan people and designed to satisfy your avocado craving –without the dairy and/or the other actually great things about, well, avocados.

Per a review of this thing by Veg News (LOL)

Organic avocado is cold-pressed, sweetened, and flavored before being churned to a silky, smooth consistency. The fruit’s subtle floral aroma lightly infuses each variety, but flavors such as Deep Dark Chocolate, Simply Lemon, and Mint Chocolate Chip shine through for a unique take on our favorite frozen treat.

¡Ay, mátenme porque me muero!

Mexicans Find Way Around Ban on Homophobic Chant

Via: Reddit

We all have heard this time and again, no matter how many times the FIFA reprimends Mexico and Mexicans for the infamous Ehhhh Puto!!!!! chant, Mexicans will find ways to get around the thing.

BTW. The latest happened just today, after FIFA said it was looking into reports of the homophobic chants by Mexico fans during Mexico’s 1-0 World Cup win against Germany at Moscow’s Luzhniki stadium.

Per Reuters:

FIFA said it was collecting the different match reports and potential evidence in regards to the matter, including the one from the anti-discrimination match observer who was present at the game as part of FIFA’s anti-discrimination monitoring system.

In Preparation for Trump-Kim Summit, Singapore Vows to Make Tacos Great Again!

Singapore’s Lucha Loco will be selling specialty tacos called “El Gringo” and “El Hombre Cohete,” in honor of the two locos that will meet there on June 12.

You know Singapore has a very special place in my heart, and just as I purchased my ticket to attend a historic high-school reunion this summer, another “seemingly important” reunion is taking place next week: A summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, or as this blogger likes to call it: A meeting between two loquitos with huge egos.

Unsurprisingly, the upcoming reunion (theirs, not mine) is already shaping up to be a very loco experience.

Take Singapore’s Mexican restaurant Lucha Loco, which is promising to “make tacos great again” by selling specialty tacos called “El Gringo” and “El Hombre Cohete” (Rocket Man.) “The former has the flavors of an American cheeseburger, while the latter is packed with Korean fried chicken,” executive chef Nelson Burgos told The Associated Press.

If a Korean fried chicken taco is not your thing, the restaurant will also be offering customers the chance to smash piñatas shaped as caricatures of the two leaders, which –you know?– might be a very therapeutic idea to be honest.

Muy loco!
