POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz’ La Cucaracha got most of the hot mouse-click action, of course, but the big surprise was the re-emergence of a Lalo-Toon™ from 2002 (above, and #1 below) which seemed to predict the future.

Dan Snyder, the owner of the hatefully-named Washington Redskins football team, is offended that South Park is using their (no-longer-trademarked) name, even though Cartman is only trying to honor the team’s awesome heritage. PREVIOUSLY ON WASHINGTON REDSKINS:

This story is not about the shameful racist pro sports team mascots that purport to honor Native Americans. It’s about icky Senhor Testiculo (photo, above left), the mascot of Brazil’s cancer society, who we think has just been “out-grossed” by Mr. Poo (photo, right), who comes to us from UNICEF in India. Señor Poo is central […]

Nothing makes me feel better than dreaming up a solid cartoon that reminds us all about the sordid history of our country’s crimes against Indians. The only thing more satisfying is seeing my ideas validated. This weekend POCHO Florida […]

“Really big testicles.” Where have we heard that lately? Oh, yes the songified stylings of Cleveland’s Charles Ramsey, describing his neighbor the alleged kidnapper.
