" 'Mericuz tuffest Sher-ruff " guilty of violating the constitutional rights of Latinos

The vexed and passionate Arizona lawman, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, was found guilty today of contravening the Constitution of these United States. Seems that Sheriff Joe and his band of deputies have been employing (rather, exploiting) Latino/a ethnic and racial markers in their never-ending patriotic crackdown on illegal immigration.

When Billy met Gabo- Que Cute!

The new and improved Guanabee has gotten all vamped up like her brothers and sisters' sites of the Gawker Media Group. So while we were checking out the new and improved site, we ran into these cute photos:

Mira los compañeros showing mutual respect and admiration! Turns out that President Clinton had been in Colombia on official business but made time to visit with one of his favorite authors and Nobel Prize Winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Apparently, according to the online version of El Tiempo a Cartagena newspaper, Clinton couldn't *"fit his smile on his face." The old friends caught up on what everyone had been up to in previous years and had a pleasant compadre time.  At the end of the visit Gabo told his old friend he loved him. Pure joy. You can see it in these photos.

*translated from "No le cabía la sonrisa en la cara." Something like grinning ear to ear.

Hipster Ode: Sombreros, Zarapes, and the Witchy Magic of Tequila

Well there! Thanks to our friend Miguel-Angel Soria for the saucy linkazo to Etsy, the hipster DIY mercado.  This stationer was so inspired by the dreamy voice of Joe Nichols' song: Tequila Makes her Clothes Fall Off,  she designed a bachelorette party invitation as a loose-fitting ode to the song. No need for the Algebra degree. Etsy-selling lady figured it all out. ¿Cierto?

 Tequila = Mexican, which means: Mexican = Sombrero and Zarapes. 

 A taste of the salty lyrics (no lime required.)

 "Them pantyhose ain't gonna last too long
If the DJ puts Bon Jovi on
 She might come home in a table cloth.
Ya tequila makes her clothes fall off"

Click here to hear the the catchy tune and watch scantily clad women bob in and out of a swimming pool whilst imbibing strip-tease-causing-satan juice in all its forms. Wannabes really. Take a page from Mr. Pee-Wee Herman's book. This is is how you do it, and mira nomás...Not a Sombrero or Zarape in site. Enjoy.
