Google Honors Selena, Because… It’s Freaking Selena!

Say what you will about Latinos in America, but if someone deserves to be honored on the homepage of the world’s most visited Website is Selena Quintanilla, the singer, songwriter, spokesperson, model, actress, who came to be known as The Queen of Tejano Music and was murdered by a [Latina] nutcase.

Here she is at the height of her brief – yet wondrous – career:

Justin Trudeau Goes to Mexico; Hilarity Ensues

A bromance months in the making…

It was brief –and hilarious.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week visited Mexico, partly to address the bilateral agenda, discuss the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA,) and –very likely– to discuss El Loco.

But at some point, during a speech to the Mexican senate, a photographer captured the above image, which of course was crafted into beautiful meme art form.

As I said yesterday: Mexican Twitter never disappoints, so here are only a few of the many images that made the rounds on Twitter Friday afternoon after the great @Vampipe invited his followers to chip in their own ideas.

Mexicans: How can anyone NOT like us?

Pecado original

eBay Says Avocados Are Among this Year’s Most Popular Halloween Costumes… Thanks, America!

The folks over at eBay have done some number crunching as part of their annual Halloween Trends Report, and have concluded that the Avocado costume is going to be all the rage this October 31st.

Why? Because white people’s obsession with the fruit knows no limits, even if said obsession is sending them to the hospital and giving rise to some of the most ridiculous “culinary” creations out there.

Thanks, America!


#ChapoKate Is Coming to a Netflix Screen Near You!

‘Cuando conocí al Chapo’ premieres Oct. 20 on Netflix.’

Not content with giving us plenty of drug-dealing action, first with a series about “Columbia’s” infamous narco Pablo Escobar, and then with the rebroadcast of Univision’s El Chapo, Netflix is at it again, this time with a “Docu-Series” starred and produced by Mexican actress Kate del Castillo.

Cuando conocí al Chapo has been produced by 25/7 Productions and Kate del Castillo Productions, and it will make its worldwide debut Oct. 20, 2017 on Netflix.

A first trailer was released today and features previously unseen footage about Del Castillo’s meeting with the notorious drug lord. The clip opens with Kate reading the first letter El Chapo sent her, while later she discusses the journey to meet him. “We didn’t know anything,” del Castillo says. “We didn’t know what was going to happen or where we were going. I got out of the car. I knew it was him. El Chapo sat right next to me. I was very scared.”

I don’t know you, but I prefer these two in piñata form.

Trump Goes to Puerto Rico; Tosses Paper Towels, Batteries and other Goods to Locals

President Donald Trump on Tuesday made his first visit to Puerto Rico, two weeks after Hurricane Maria devastated the U.S. territory.

During a visit to a local church, Trump tossed paper towels, batteries and rice, among other goods into a crowd as if he were some kind of NBA-trained Marie Antoinette or something.

I’m literally speechless and there’s nothing else I need to say now. JUST WATCH.

This Puerto Rican Restaurant Has a ‘Latin Asian Corner’ Featuring a Chino Latino Roll 😂

I’m pretty sure I’m going to be driven out of West Harlem very soon, as the hood becomes more sophisticated (i.e. expensive/trendy/stupid) by the minute.

On the heels of the new avocado-experts in town, comes Sofrito, a fancy eatery billing itself as “A Taste of Puerto Rico in the heart of NYC.”

The place – which offers dramatic views of the George Washington Bridge – features $14 glasses of bad wine; $19 ropa vieja and adds a 20 percent tip on your bill (whether you like it or not.)

I like my expensive, nonsensical meals and drinks with a view

I went to check it out and was mostly tempted by the “Latin Asian Corner,” which features things like seafood with leche the tigere [sic] and a $12 Chino Latino Roll, whose latinidad comes – I guess – from the “Spice shrimp” and the cilantro.

My review: “Meh. I’m heading back to the taco truck.”

Editor’s Note: Yeah, I’m using emojis on headlines now.
