I have no idea what this is, but it looks colorful and “ethnic” enough to earn a space in this blog.

The creative folks over at Leo Burnett Chicago have come up with probably the stupidest commercial out there featuring totopos, burritos … and a mariachi trio.
Watch as a man sleeping on a bunch of nachos relives the burrito he ate during the day when he tries to go to bed and is woken up by a mariachi band.
The message? The food you eat during the day can hunt you at night. Worry not: Nexium 24 HR can help relieve heartburn symptoms.
You might not know this, but zopilotes are really, really bad birds.
Imagine this, but Mexican –and thus, way scarier.
With this in mind, Oaxacan artist Víctor Robinson has created the “ZopiloTrump”, the scariest thing you’ll see this year on both sides of the border, mind you.
The ZopiloTrump was unveiled Thursday, October 27 in Mexico City and is expected to embark on a national tour until it reaches Mexicali, right the site where he-who-shall-not-be-mentioned plans to erect a big, yuuuuge wall.
Oh, and just in time to celebrate the upcoming Day of the Dead, here’s an awesome “calavera” cortesy of the aforementioned artist:
Andaba la calaca flaca
llorando por todo México,
porque a Donald Trump
lo invitó Peña Nieto.
La huesuda indignada
a Trump le reclamó:
“¿Qué haces aquí racista de lo peor?”
A lo que Donald respondió:
yo tener para ti dinero,
edificios, mansiones, hasta un avión”.
“De ti no quiero ni maiz”, dijo la parca,
“Tú no tienes amigos,
y de espíritu eres pobretón,
además vas a perder la elección,
y deja en paz a los migrantes
que tanto los cuido yo”.

After much teasing, Dos Equis finally unveiled its first full-fledged commercial featuring French actor Augustin Legrand, the brand’s new “Most Interesting Man in the World.”
And he’s actually not that interesting.
Unlike Jonathan Goldsmith, Dos Equis’ original — and devastatingly handsome — Most Interesting Man in the World, the new guy comes across more like a hipster than a seductive “real man” á la Goldsmith. Unlike his predecessor, who enjoyed sharing a good meal surrounded by several gorgeous women, the new will make you a “spinach fettuccini with a shiitake mushroom glaze.”
Per Dos Equis, the action in the new ads take place entirely in the present era, unlike the old ones that included footage of a younger version of the man, suggesting a bygone era. The new spots — and spokesperson — are also an attempt to attract more so-called millennials to the brand, proving once again that millennials just ruin everything.

Hillary Clinton made Hispanic History (i.e. Hispandering) on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016 by showing up at Univision’s long-running El Gordo y la Flaca; declaring Mexican food is her favorite and even getting up to dance salsa with the crew.
Alas, she did not take her clothes off to join The Fat One in his famous jacuzzi. Now THAT would have been entertaining…
Now I’m dead.
DEVELOPING: This blog post will be updated as soon as this recovers from shock (which will likely occur until after Happy Hour)
In what appears to be Great America PAC’s first Spanish-language television ad backing Donald Trump, we can see Hillary Clinton shown barking like a dog while a narrator says something like “If you want the dog, accept the fleas,” except that the superimposed Spanish-language text on the screen actually says “accepta,” instead of acepta.
But none of it matters, because the whole thing is so horrible, it will make you cringe even if you don’t speak Spanish.
WATCH. CRINGE. DO NOT REPEAT

You can accuse my people (i.e. The Mexicans) of being lazy and all, but there is one thing we truly excel at: Fiscal Policy Innovation.
Take the town of San Nicolás de los Garza, in Northern Mexico, which is inviting property owners to a weight-loss program whose goal is to shed 10 kilograms or more during a 10-week period. The reward? A family whose combined weight loss totals 10 kilos or more will get a 50 percent credit on their 2017 taxes.
I think that is a really awesome program, especially in a state known for its world-class cabrito, which would make any property owner think twice before embracing any type of weight-loss challenge.
Personally, I do not plan to lose weight, nor quit cabrito any time soon, so it’s a great thing I don’t own property after all.
Say what you will about you-know-who* but you cannot deny he has given my people (i.e. The Mexicans *and* The Funny People) plenty to work with.
Take the Bad Hombres burrito, spotted in Portland, Maine, which according to their creators sold out 2 hours after putting it on the menu the day after the last debate.
I can only hope the lucky ones to get their hands on one were able to wash it down with a Mexican Coca-Cola, to further spitte you-know-who*.

New York City’s Michael Jordan’s The Steak House has jumped into the UTW (Unaffordable-Tacos-Wagon) with the introduction of a $12 New York strip taco, generously featuring guacamole *and* pico de gallo.
Please note that for that price you will only be able to order at the bar.. Were you to sit down at an actual table, this thing will probably cost you like 50 bucks or something.
This blogger has not tried, nor will try these things until she succeeds in accomplishing a long-time quest: to Make U.S. Tacos Affordable Again!

Nothing to add here. We have all gone mental.
Speaking of Hillary Clinton and her tacos con todo, the pantsuit-loving democratic presidential candidate (PLDPC) is planning to throw a Mexican/Hispanic-themed party to watch the last presidential debate Wednesday night.
According to the Clinton campaign, the fiesta will take place Oct. 19 in Nevada, home of Tacos El Gordo, and will feature Vicente “Chente” Fernández as a guest of honor.
In case you have forgotten or — WORSE! — don’t follow this blog, “Chente” just came back from near retirement to ask YOU to vote for Hillary in mariachi fashion.
Now, go get yourself a Made-in-China mariachi hat and liters of tequila, and don’t forget to follow @miblogestublog on Twitter for a Mexican-themed Twitter party Wednesday night.
Turns out Harlem Hispanics are not alone in their quest to come up with the awesomest translations for non-Hispanic vegetables.
The turn is now for green –and red– Bell Pepper, which have become Chile Campana, because “pimiento” is a boring word and my people are just the best of the best.
As seen in San Mateo, California by Begoña Lozano, purveyor of awesome postings.
As part of her ongoing effort to woo my people (i.e. taco-loving Hispanics) Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton this week made a very important stop in Tacos El Gordo, a Las Vegas staple.
According to — who else? — Spanish-language media, Clinton ordered two tacos: one of carne adobada and one of asada.
Two tacos might not sound like a lot, but according to my sources, la Clinton wanted them “con todo,” because you know how politician types can be like. They always want, like, everything.

One of the greatest things about Mexicans is that they won’t discriminate against nations and/or nationalities when it comes to ask rotten politicians to go fuck themselves.

Zazzle, the company that brought us the gramatically-challenged Latinos for Trump T-shirt is finally doing something useful, namely, peddling the above bumper sticker.
Who knew it took so little to convince me to buy a car?
