American sure love Mexican food — as POCHO’s Associate Naranjero Gustavo ¡Ask A Mexican Arellano noted in his best-selling book Taco USA. And Mexican-inspired dishes are everywhere, like deep-fried nachos on a stick in Milwaukee,, Arizona’s potentially dangerous churro dog and kosher carnitas y nopales burritos inside a donut here in Los Angeles.

Today, on Munchie Monday, Ben & Jerry’s go nationwide and win the Internet with their new ice cream BRR-ito inspired by Apple’s ground-breaking 1984 Macintosh commercial, with a little 4/20 mixed in.

It’s hard to find decent Mexican food in London, but critic Richard Vines found three taquerias worth visiting in a report for Bloomberg TV. We were puzzled that the Limeys spell Oaxaca “Wahaca” but then we remembered that Brits are stupid with “foreign” terms — they pronounce “filet” like “fill-it,” for example. Food critic Vines does an exemplary job, however, with words like “molcajete.” PRO TIP FOR SEÑOR VINES: There is no such thing as “molcajete sauce.”

After futebol, soltar pipas, is Brasil’s most popular sport. In the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, flying the pipa is more than a leisurely escape from on-the-ground realities — it’s a venue for battle, with the entire sky as the arena. Pipa designs and airborne “cutting” strategies have been passed through generations, from rooftop to rooftop.

Filmmakers Guilherme Tensol and Leandro HBL spent time in Rocinha, Rio’s largest favela, among its young pipa warriors and elder statesmen, absorbing their secrets and documenting their stories.
