Move Over, America; the Mexican Flag Is on its Way to the Moon… No, Really

¡Y retiemble en sus centros la Luna….!

If a group of Mexican scientists have their way, we will be seeing the Mexican flag on the surface of the Moon very, very soon.

No, really.

According to a very reliable source I’ve never heard of, a group of scientists from Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM) is working on deploying eight small robots that will eventually set foot on the surface of the Moon as soon as 2019. Once there, they say, they will do the most obvious thing one does when getting there: PLANT A FREAKING FLAG!

But that will only be the beginning, I’m told. Sources close to the project assure me the next phase will be even more exciting: A taquería!

¡Ajúa!

Daryl Cagle Annoys the Hell Out of Mexicans… Even Paulina Rubio Knows Our Flag is Sacred

If Mexicans needed another reason to vent their ire against a gringo (any gringo) they found a good one this week. Provocative political cartoonist Daryl Cagle really managed to piss off hundreds of Mexicans with what many are calling a “desecration of the Mexican flag.”

Shame on you, Mr. Cagle!!!

Didn’t you know Mexicans are so proud of our flag that we use them to wrap up our beloved celebrities? Gee!

Hat tip to my manito, whom I wish never to see wrapped in anything remotely patriotic
