LOVE: Pressuring You to Have Children

babyWe’ve mentioned how much Latinos love their family. We also wrote about how much we love copulating. (We’re the fastest growing ethnic minority group for a reason, increasing by the gazillions!) What I didn’t write about is how much pressure our parents put on us to have children. If I had a dollar for every time my mom asks me for grandchildren, I’d be richer than Bill Gates. When you tell Latinos you don’t have Read More

LOVE: Asking the Obvious

asking the obviousLatinos LOVE asking questions with obvious answers. Preguntas necias! As an example, let’s say you’re walking down the street, stumble, and fall. A Latino will be quick to ask, “Did you fall?” Um, no, I just figured I’d hug the sidewalk while on my way. Or if you’re expecting. Don’t be shocked if a Latino asks, “Are you pregnant?” Nope. No. Just swallowed a watermelon for breakfast. And let’s not forget when a reporter once asked Juan Gabriel (the most flamboyant artist ever) if he was gay. He responded, “Lo que es obvio, NO se pregunta!”

ARGENTINA WE LOVE YOU!!!!

argentina flag FIFA
This 2014 FIFA World Cup final game was everything we expected and more. Germany and Argentina played ruthlessly, every second was intense and entertaining to watch. Argentina did not take the cup home, but they did stupendously well. I’ve never seen them play so aggressively, loved every minute of it. Congrats to Germany! Our love goes to Argentina, Lionel Messi, Sergio Romero, Gonzalo Higuaín, Lucio Biblia, Rodrigo Palacio, Javier Mascherano, Ezequiel Lavezzi, and the rest of the team players we love you all!!! Can’t wait for 2018, see you in Russia!

Congrats Argentina!!!!

los albicelestesHow do we say this eloquently? Woooohoooo!!! Great job Argentina! This 2014 FIFA World Cup has been amazing. The final two playing this Sunday in Rio de Janeiro for the trophy (that oddly resembles a golden scrotum) will be Argentina and Germany. We acknowledge that Germany is a very talented team, but we won’t disregard that they both are a force to be reckoned with. Argentina is hungry, they hadn’t reach this far since 1990. Of course, we’re going for los Albicelestes! We could not be more proud of all our teams representing Latin America! Great game. They gave it their best and that’s good enough for us!
