Baby Tiger Born in Veracruz Named Covid, Because Mexico

Covid was born March 14 in Córdoba and he’s truly adorbs

Today, in the always popular section “Mexico in the time of coronavirus,” I give you Covid, a baby Bengal tiger born March 14 in a small zoo in Córdoba, Veracruz.

“Covid was born to an 8-year-old tigress that had been in a circus and was nursed back to health after needing an operation for a hip fracture,” zoo owner Gonzalo Rodriguez told Reuters.

So now you know it, my people not only make fun of death and calamities; we embrace them all the way.

Welcome to the world, sweet Covid…

Thanos Twerks around Tacos and Tortas in the World’s Most Amazing Commercial

A restaurant in Boca del Río, Veracruz has found a winning combination to sell its products: Footage from Avengers: Infinity War, tacos, tortas and a super fun evil Thanos that twerks to show his penchant for Mexican food.

A commercial posted on the Facebook account of Takesabroso, shows Thanos delivering his now-famed deadly snap as he dissolves half of life on Earth. But instead of retreating to a quiet life until the Avengers come back seeking revenge, he is inspired to twerk around delicous tacos and tortas.

Watch the original tweet where this appears before Marvel’s lawyers get on this…

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!

Aspiring Congresswoman in Mexico Campaigns as ‘The Helpful Blond,’ Because Mexico

Not the Onion

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

Corintia Cruz (above) thought it was an awesome idea to campaign under the slogan of: Corintia, la güerita que te ayuda, which loosely translates as Corintia, the little blond woman who will help you.

I have no idea what her political platform and/or proposals for the people of Veracruz are, but given the fact that she is from the PRI, I’m pretty sure she’s pretty adept at helping … herself.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering: No, my country is *not* racist.
