Are you dying for a trio of juicy tacos al pastor but happen to live in the middle of Iowa? Worry not! Amazon has you covered!

Starting very soon, Amazon will begin delivery of “Meal Kits,” a service similar to Blue Apron, which will provide you with all the pieces necessary to ensamble your own meal! Take the Tacos al Pastor kit, which includes jalapeños, salsa verde, chipotle marinade, pork loin, pineapple, cilantro, radishes, pico de gallo and — alas — flour tortillas, because this is America, people, and that’s that. So, suck it.

Check out below all the goodies you’ll get and the instructions to ensamble your own Tacos al Pastor.

At Last, the Complete Set of Mexican Emojis in One Image

MEXICANEMOJIS

I’m almost certain that the readers of this blog will be able to identify all of these (otherwise, shame on you!). Needless to say, this blogger’s favorites are El subcomandante, the torta and the trompo al pastor.

Still, hit me with questions (i.e. leave a comment below) if:

1) You fail to identify all of these

2) You think there are some missing

Happy World Emoji Day y’all!

Trump Wants His Border Wall to be Transparent, so People Don’t Get Hit on the Head with Flying Drugs

Who would want to be hit on the head with one of these?

Mr. Donald Trump is a very creative fellow, so it shouldn’t surprise you to know he has come up with an awesome idea for that U.S.-Mexican wall he will build and my people will pay for it: He wants to it to be transparent… The reason?

Here’s how the president actually explained this to journalists:

“As horrible as it sounds, when they throw large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them. […] They hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over.”

Wow! It’s all so simple, yet brilliant! And I’m glad to have such a thoughtful leader in charge of the free world.

Gracias, Señor Presidente!

Mexican Veganism Is Veganism I Can Actually Embrace 🐷

Vegan crumbs to spice up your fish, chicken and steak. Yay!

Are you a MEAT lover, but want to get into the whole healthy-vegan-kale-gluten-free hipster BS trend thing?

Worry not. My people have come up with an amazing idea!

I give you Vegan Bread Crumbs, a gluten-free, vegan product you can safely use to bread your fish, chicken and — YES — steak.
