You can't make this up: Holy Yanomamo, Margaret Mead! The Mexican Troll--banditry as a genetic given!
"He is one of a band of desperadoes who, fired with fierce instincts of rebellion and intrigue, steep themselves in a sea of lawlessness, and terrorise the peaceful populace of Mexico as did the fabled trolls the simple folk of Scandinavia."
Now I know where that animatronic Freddie Lopez elf/troll, 'half-breed' muppet came from in A Very Retail Christmas, documented in the Speedy Gonzales chapter of Tex[t]-Mex!
Just a quick update with a link to a video of the "elves" from A Very Retail Christmas, the show that features half-breed troll/elves infiltrating Santa's North Pole enclave. Thanks to Victoria Chavez of San Diego for this find! Victoria also sends in this Made-for-Tex[t]-Mex picture from People Magazine.
