Mexico’s Top Health Official Is Now an Official Piñata, Because Mexico

Hugo López-Gatell as a piñata? Yes, please, thank you.

It is official: Hugo López-Gatell Ramírez, the Mexican deputy health minister in the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19 has been immortalized in a piñata from the famed Piñatería Ramírez in northern Mexico.

The López-Gatell piñata comes with –what else– a mini version of the coronavirus piñata and a sign with a very appropriate message in these times of pandemia: Quédate en casa (Stay home.)

As a Twitter follower wrote the other day: This is “as prestigious as having been inducted into the Mexican historical hall of fame.”

#ChapoKate Is a Thing and to Prove it, Here are their Piñatas

The creators of the Donald Trump piñata are at it again, this time with an awesome combo: Two brand new piñatas, one featuring Kate del Castillo (aka La Reina del Sur and the toughest telenovela actress you will ever meet) and a revamped Chapo-Piñata, featuring Guzmán clad in the now infamous worn-out gray t-shirt he was wearing when caught.

The combo comes on the heels of one of the most surreal (i.e. awesome) stories ever to hit my ever-surreal country…

I think this is all great (gracias, Piñatería Ramírez!), but this blogger has one urgent question: How much longer do we have to wait for the Sean-Penndejo piñata?

The ‘Trumpiñata’ App Let’s you Whack Donald Trump from the Comfort of your Mobile Device

Do you hate El Trumpo but are not into whacking an actual piñata?

Worry no more. Two young developers have created a free app for iOS and Android that envisions Donald Trump as a piñata you can whack to produce candy.

According to this blog, the game allows you to collect coins, candy and unlockable piñata accessories and costumes. But no, it’s not just some money-making thing (yet,) but part of one of the developer’s USC Master’s Thesis.

I don’t know about you, but I’m on my way to download this thing. However, I MUST WARN YOU: I am seriously convinced that a Donald Trump piñata (digital or otherwise) cannot be full of candy; but just full of sh*t.
