Do you have a TV? Do you like to drink beer? Good for you, idiot — you have met the minimum requirements for sports fandom. But how do smart people drink and yell at the screen (often at the same time)? Watch and learn.
Self-consciously cool French dudes sure love their iPads, but sometimes, as the mademoiselles know, one must squeeze Le Charmin, or Le Trefle, as they say in France. D’accord, Monsieur Whipple? Or do we have to mansplain it to you?
Is this an original video from when King Africa‘s La Bomba was a big hit in 2000? We don’t know, but this video showed up on YouTube Thursday evening and we had to share. If this doesn’t make you at least chair dance, call a doctor!
(PNS reporting from IOWA CITY) Brian Peterson said he started out last Friday night like any other night — catching up on his favorite telenovela so he could improve his Spanish language skills.
But this episode of El Amor No Muere was different.
“After three months of pretending like they could be just friends, Gabriela and Domingo were finally going to get together! But instead of just kissing, they ended up, well, more compromised,” Peterson told PNS. “That’s when it happened.”
HVAC specialist Peterson had watched telenovelas purely for their educational value. He wanted to learn, in his words, “how people truly and actually live” in Mexico.
Señora Hall, his old Regina High Spanish teacher who studied Spanish in Spain, once told him many students swore by telenoevelas for their educational value, and he remembered her advice when he was trying to understand what some Spanish-speaking coworkers were trying to tell him.

Eliot Chang just loves Spanish-language TV. Comic Yamil (“I’m Hispanic”) Piedra dislikes the very same shows, doesn’t think the comedies are funny, hates the dubbing and thinks the Spanish voices sound like they were recorded on the toilet. YMMV.
The late, “despicable” wrestling pocho Eddie Guerrero insists opponent Rey Mysterio seat his son Dominic Mysterio ringside — so the son will witness Guerrero’s trimumph over his dad, up close and personal. Will Mysterio be so pre-occupied with his son’s safety that he’ll lose focus and let Guerrero’s distraction trick work its evil magic? Evil […]
When your casting call includes skin color, people are going to think one of two things: Either you’re filming a sunblock ad or you’re a stone racist. The New Mexico Tourism Board’s little gaffe (nicely summed up here from local news clips by the sharp folks at Cuentame) pretty much says it: Arizona Cerebral Fever […]
Conan O’Brien’s show is more popular with Hispanic viewers than any other late-night program, the vaguely-talented host announced Monday night. Here are the Pocho Ocho reasons why: 8. He has hair like everyone’s tio. 7. Hispanics think he is funny; Latinos don’t. 6. He has more Latino comedy writers than George Lopez did — one.
(PNS reporting from EAST LOS) East Los Angeles College grad student and lifetime MEChA member Albert Principio is blasting the Public Broadcasting Service over the absence of Latinos on the hit British programme Downton Abbey, which chronicles the escapades of the aristocratic Grantham family and their fun-loving servants in the years surrounding World War I.
