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.”
A new change.org 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?**
America, land of the free, and home of the meatless chorizo and the Chicken Taco Grande Ring, is now giving us the “Latino croissant,” which this blogger believes it’s a croissant, but Latino… whatever *that* means.
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 of “Just 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?
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!)
