The ‘Guadalupe Scale’ Offers Personalized Message in Spanish. Mine Said: ¡Deja de Tragar!

Driving back home from Washington D.C. this weekend I stopped in charming Freehold, New Jersey only to find this machine waiting for me at the entrance of a crowded public restroom.

Manufactured by Impulse Industries, the Guadalupe Scale offers Latinos a chance to find out how much they weight AND receive -at no additional charge- a free, inspirational message from none other than the Patrona de México.

Brimming with joy, I jumped on the Guadalupe Scale only to have La morenita scold me for the excess turkey, pumpkin and alcoholic beverages I gobbled down this past weekend.

“Step off, and ¡Deja de tragar!” she told me.

Good Lord! I guess it’s time for me to seek Dr. Manny’s advice
