menudokid(PNS reporting from ALTADENA) Javier “Flaco” Hernandez outraged his family Sunday night when he refused to eat his bowl of menudo.

“It’s yucky!” the 8-year-old shouted as he repeatedly banged his spoon on the dinner table and insisted on pizza instead.

Flaco’s refusal ticked off his mom, who had spent hours preparing the beef stomach broth in the kitchen of their tidy suburban Los Angeles County bungalow. [Mas…]

baylessbookcoverDear pochos thinking of boycotting Thanksgiving as a symbol of American imperialism: Check out these indigenous and ingenious options for a holiday dinner. We promise they won’t remind people of genocide. Why settle for a Turducken, for example, when you can enjoy these delicacies featured in Native Holiday Treats from Indigenous Mexico by Rick Bayless.

8. Burrlenguaj:  California burritos wrapped in lengua, stuffed in a turkey.

7. Poznudo: a bowl of pozole inside a bowl of menudo, eaten while nude.

7upbaby640(PNS reporting from CHICAGO) Black coffee, menudo, In-N-Out, mota, maybe even a little hair of the dog — all common hangover remedies, right? But according to a study from Mexican culinary genius Rick Bayless, a new discovery might have them all beat: 7-Up.

“People have helplessly suffered hangovers forever and without any kind of cure. Well, I have discovered the single greatest hangover cure of all-time and can back it up with scientific evidence. No one has ever thought of this before…it’s 7-Up, my friends. You’re welcome!” Bayless told PNS. [Mas…]

As a result of the ongoing Pocho Revolution, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of people who identify themselves as pochos.

While most are legitimate pochos, there are many who have infiltrated the ranks and are seeking to subvert the ideals of Pochismo.

We’re not talking about the CIA, the FBI or even the dread Victory Outreach. The threat to Pochismo comes in the form of the nefarious Chilangos, the denizens of Mexico City who stormed into the heart of Aztlan through LAX to take over Chicanismo and are now moving deep into Pocholandia.

The indoctrinization of the Chilango is so subtle that you may already be a Chilango and not even know it. If you suspect that you or someone you know is a Chilango, here is a simple quiz to find out for sure. If you answer “c” or “si” to most of the questions, chances are you are a Chilango.

Take the quiz!

525 is:

a) A style of Levi’s
b) The telephone prefix they use in movies
c) The Mexico City area code


Defying the horizontally-correct nay-sayers of videoville, POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz took his iPhone where no phone has gone before — up close and pinche personal with a bowl of menudo at famed Mi Tierra Cafe in San Antonio, TX for a verboten vertical video. Is this the medical menudo we’ve been hearing about?
