Florida Pharmacy Sells ‘Hispanic Drugs,’ Because Florida

Drogas hispánicas

This image, which has been doing the rounds on the Internet, couldn’t find a better home than this blog, which has dutifully documented the birth of Hispanic cheese; the deliciously weird tortilla-flavored chocolates; the Mexican Coca-Cola and even a Hispanic lettuce to go with your Hispanic tuna and your Hispanic mayonnaise.

I have several questions about this display, including: Where is the uña de gato?; shouldn’t the sign read “Hispanic drugs” as in several (not one) drugs… Shouldn’t it be “Drogas hispanas” and not “hispánicas”… Oh… and can the creator of this display come forward? I’d like to thank him/her personally.

Thank you for your cooperation.

    Yeah, pretty funny that they couldn’t find a Spanish OR English speaker to design the shelf title. But, from a quick gander at the products, perhaps quackery didn’t translate well.
