Even though America was the country that invented the Internets, U.S. broadband connectivity lags behind the rest of the world. In Spain, fiber-optic broadband from ONO.es is so broad, zombies come to you.

(PNS reporting from RANCHO POCHO ESTATES) In a shocking file uploaded to the Internets last week, a mom in suburban Southern California has been captured on video feeding her baby hot salsa in a baby bottle in order to pay for her husband’s “picante burger” habit.

In the video, a spicy burger pusher known only as “Jack” — his true identity hidden by a grotesque disguise — rings the family’s doorbell and pretends to be religious missionary so the neighbors don’t suspect. “Do you have three minutes to talk about spicy hamburgers?” he asks burger-junkie Juan Desperado, who opens the door.

Why do American Jews drink Mexican Coke on Passover?

Thumbnail image for Why do American Jews drink Mexican Coke on Passover?

American Jews — like most Americans — agree*. Mexican Coke tastes better than American Coke. Why? Because it’s made with real cane sugar. American Coca-Cola is sweetened with High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS.) Like my Bubbeh (Abuelita) used to say, “Feh!” But Mexican Coke also answers to a higher authority. Observant Ashkenazi Jews aren’t supposed […]

In 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act which prohibits gender discrimination in wages. Back then, women made 59 cents on average for every dollar earned by men. Fifty years later, women earn only 77 cents for every buck a guy gets, so the battle that Batgirl began is not over.

Peter Bennett Lefebvre shot some stunning closeup footage when he went diving off Isla Mujeres. Lefebvre set it to music by Manu Chao (Me Gusta Tu) and we think it came out pretty cool. Amazing little fishies! Ghostly crabs! Squirming squids! Reluctant sea urchins! Bizarre creatures we don’t know exactly what! Yellow, porous and absorbent […]
