President Trump might have some evil plans in store for my people (i.e. The Mexicans,) but — at least for now — some of us take great pleasure in the simple, little things. Like Mexican Ices in the summer heat, for example.

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.

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

Happy World Emoji Day y’all!
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!
