Fox News Latino, the bastion of fair-and-balanced journalism (LOL) is asking readers of its hot & spicy new Web site to help them name a political party should Latinos were to form their own party. Should it be the Salsa Party? The Cafe Party? or The Tequila Party?
Here is the poll as they published it this week… and I swear I’m not making it up, even though, I have my own very well kept opinions about these individuals.
As for myself, I’m going to abstain from voting. As you all know by now, I am an active member of the Grand Old Enchilada Party.
I have found yet another reason why a school will never hire me to teach anything…. anywhere.
According to the AP, Carlos Garcia, a New York City high-school teacher, has been suspended and fined with $15,000 for what school officials say was “misconduct for using it in his Manhattan classroom,” in other words, for saying the word “coño” out loud.
If uttering a word such as “coño” is considered “misconduct” in a classroom, this blogger has absolutely no future in the field of education. So without further ado, I am withdrawing my candidacy to assist Ms. Catherine P. Black in her new gig as NYC School Czar, even though she looks to be as clueless to handle the task as I am.
I’m all up for tolerance, freedom of religion and all that stuff. But being woken up before noon on a Sunday by a group of Spanish-speaking Jehova’s witnesses has got to be sin, no matter where you live.
However, as soon as I saw what these guys were bringing into my home, my annoyance turned to curiosity: According to their literature, our suffering will end soon… as soon as we move to Canada, and organize pic-nics with pumpkins and apples while moose and horses roam around.
Which would be, like, super nice, because right now it’s 40 degrees outside and the only thing roaming around my neighborhood are livery cabs, tamale street vendors and, well, plenty of Jehova’s witnesses.
Meet the new Spider Girl -aka Anya Corazón- a 16-year-old high-school student of Latino descent who lives in -where else?- Gotham.
According to creators, Marvel Comics, Anya Corazón provides “a positive, modern image of an empowered young woman.” But I like to think of her more like a tough señorita, who will use her superpowers to take on your Seagals and your Ferrignos.
And wait until she hooks up with this guy: There’s going to be a lot of Paf! Pum! Zas!
Kahlúa has a hilarious new campaign out featuring veracruzana Ana de la Reguera, informing gringos about several important truths, including the fact that “Here in Veracruz we speak Spanish mostly because it’s the language that we speak.” LOL.
Watch Ana do her thing and enjoy a nice campaign that -for once- takes a tired stereotype to a funny and truly enjoyable end.
The campaign, now under way, is the first from a new Kahlúa creative agency, TBWA/Chiat/Day.
Next time your car breaks down in a Latino neighborhood, all you have to do is call the folks at Jimmy John’s. Not only they will deliver your sandwich right on the spot, but they will make sure to send a squeaky-clean white boy for your safety.
Attention, Latin American workers working in rotten conditions: Hang on to your dreams -and hopes: You never know when your crummy, underpaid, terribly dangerous job will help you land a spot in the New York City marathon and make you a star of late-night television.
If it happened to Edison Peña, it can happen to all of us! [or not]
U.S. broadcast television wants you to believe Ricky Martin came out of the closet on March 29. But us, Spanish speakers exposed to Televisión Española know that this actually happened a long, long, time ago, in a galaxy not very far away, actually.
