Mayor of Ixhuatlancillo, Veracruz, Erects Monument to Avengers –Because Mexico

The Mayor of Ixhuatlancillo is a huge fan of ‘The Avengers,’ apparently.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

Turns out the Mayor of the mostly indigenous town of Ixhuatlancillo, Veracruz, has spent several thousands of pesitos to build –and erect– several statues honoring members of The Avengers and The Justice League.

It should be noted that the town doesn’t even have a movie theatre and (I’m pretty sure) there are more urgent stuff to take care of. But, who the hell cares? When it comes to surreal politics, MEXICO IS THE SHIT!

‘Captain Mexico’ Kicks Hitler’s Ass. Shields Himself With Huge Sombrero

First it was Burger King and its now infamous Texican Whopper. Then came Cadbury Schweppes with its mariachi-shaped flu protection device. And now Jimmy Kimmel is pissing off some touchy Mexicans with Captain Mexico, starring -who else?- Kimmel’s sidekick Guillermo, a native of Zacatecas.

Captain Mexico kicks Hitler’s ass and shields himself with a huge sombrero, because, really, what else was he going to protect himself with?

Watch, enjoy and let the madness begin.
