Toys R Us Portugal Features Border Wall, other ‘Typically Mexican’ Fun Toys and Stuff!

I couldn’t make this shit up even if I tried…

According to archfamous Mexican professional footballer Miguel Layún, Toys R Us Portugal has a dedicated Mexico section, where kids can do so many fun things, including getting acquainted with Trump’s Border Wall.

The above photo was taken by Layún, who tweeted (in Spanish): “It is so sad that @ToysRUS in Gaia features this type of decoration; we decided to leave upon seeing this joke.”

I only wonder if they sell fun family board games like The Illegal Game and the like…

Conan Goes to Mexico, Handles Street Tacos Like a Boss


You might not be aware of this, but Conan O’Brien is in Mexico City, thus having much better food — and fun — than the rest of us.

This week, as part of his ongoing Mexico City adventure, the famed TV presenter was spotted sharing a few street tacos with none other than Jorge Ramos, the Univision anchor who managed to pissed off Trump way before the rest of the “evil, flailing media” did.

Anyhow, Conan Without Borders: Made In Mexico premieres Wednesday, March 1st on TBS and this blogger cannot wait.

Texans Want to Make Tacos the National Food of Texas. I’m Totally Cool with that, But…


A new petition wants Texans to embrace the taco as a new official state symbol, because — as everybody knows — the taco is a waaaay more diverse dish than chili, the state dish of Texas since 1977. (Think about it: You can actually put chili in a tortilla and… call it a taco!)

So, yes, I’m 100 percent behind these folks’ claims about the wonderfulness of tacos (how could I not be?) but before I sign this petition, I just have a quick question:

When are we (the Mexicans) expected to get the state back?**

BREAKING: John F. Kennedy to Visit Mexico Real Soon


Forget El Nacional mistaking one version of Donald Trump with another one.

Mexico’s El Sol de Hermosillo today embarked in one of the world’s most beautiful fuck ups in the history of print media fuck ups.

However, for the purpose of this blog, this is just, well, wonderful, so all this blogger can say is: Thank you, thank you, Mexican Twitter, I owe you one*

Sorry, Folks, the $40 Burrito Yoga Bag Is Sold Out, but…


Fear not: I’m pretty sure the folks over at Brogamats are working on it.

In the meantime, you can always use your tortilla towel  or — of course — a Deluxe Mexican Yoga Blanket as an OK substitute to wrap your existing yoga mat.

PLUS… Last time I checked, the $1,300 taco bag was still available, so you can still enjoy a tortilla-filled life until the burrito yoga bag is in stock again.

Florida Woman Sues Mexican Restaurant After Falling off a Fake Donkey, Because Florida


What happens when Americans go to a Mexican restaurant in… America? They climb on fake donkey; attempt to take picture; fall off said donkey; file lawsuit.

According to local media, Kimberly Bonn was dining at the El Jalisco restaurant in Tallahassee when she attempted to climb atop a built-to-scale burro statue to pose for a picture. But as she attempted to mount it, Bonn slipped off the statue and broke her back. She is claiming that the restaurant as it fault for the accident due to a lack of safety features, such as a “steps, a ladder, or a non-slip saddle.”

Bonn is now seeking damages of more than $15,000, but it’s not going to be an easy battle.

The restaurant’s most loyal customers have launched a social media campaign in support of the burro: The campaign, under the very appropriate banner ofJust Because I’m an a**, it doesn’t mean I have to be treated like one,” is quickly gaining supporters, including this blogger, of course.

Because, really, how can you not be with El burro on this one?

I Can’t ‘Wrap’ my Head Around the Half Mexican Chicken

What happened to the other half of the Mexican?

Let’s forget for one second that most of the ingredients on this “thing” look everything but Mexican…

What I really need to know is: Is this London food market selling us a chicken that is half Mexican? If so, what’s the other half? British?

Or is this a 100-percent-Mexican chicken that’s being sold in halves? 🤔

Regular Sour Cream Becomes ‘Mexican Style Sour Cream’ on Amazon Fresh, because Marketing


Remember the YogaDirect Mexican Deluxe Yoga Mat? Well, you can now add another “very special” Mexican product to your Amazon shopping cart.

From the Amazon Fresh Grocery and Gourmet Food department, I give you the LALA Mexican Style Sour Cream, which pops as a “popular in your area” product when browsing the page while Mexican.

But before you reach out for your wallet and click BUY to give this Mexican delicacy a chance, let me clue you in on something: It’s really just a regular sour cream, but made in Mexico, you know?

Tamales Know no Borders

... and they're only $1.50 each!
… and they’re only $1.50 each!

The so-called President can say whatever he wants, and build a wall as big as his ego, but my people continue to make this blogger (and many more Mexicans) very happy on this side of the border.

The ‘Spanish Feminist T-shirt’ Fails to Speak Proper Spanish


Human, an online retailer that “believes that every printed object can be a mechanism to declare identity and belonging,” would be well advised to double check their Spanish copy before plastering whatever on their t-shirts, mugs and other accessories.

Take the Spanish Feminist T-shirt, which features nonsensical Spanish copy which — I assume — is an attempt to translate the phrase: This is what a feminist looks like.

Seriously, guys? I mean, even Google Translate does a better job with simple phrases like that.

(Don’t know how to say it properly? Well, HIRE A TRANSLATOR!)
