Watch Out, Geico! Here Comes El Martillo Tejano

Who cares if switching to Geico can save you 15 percent or more on car insurance?

If I were to have a car — or live in Texas — (both very unlikely scenarios) I’d totally call Jim Adler, aka El Martillo Tejano, who promises to protect my people (i.e. The Hispanics) from sleazy insurance companies and give us the most compensation possible in case of a car accident.

Watch Adler inform us about his services in the best Gringo-Spanish I’ve heard in a while.

Take it away Jim!

Greetings from the Land of ‘Fantacy,’ — a.k.a. La La Land

Who Needs a Border Wall when you Can Have Mexican Ices?

Saturday, July 22, 2017.

President Trump might have some evil plans in store for my people (i.e. The Mexicans,) but — at least for now — some of us take great pleasure in the simple, little things. Like Mexican Ices in the summer heat, for example.
