MashiMachine makes Ecuador’s president say what you want
Check out this web app where you can make a video with the words you put in the mouth of Rafael Correa, the anti-free speech President of Ecuador.
And here he thought he was the only person allowed to say anything without fear of repression. Not on our Internet, amigo.
I’d love to see a Trump version of MashiMachine!

Latino USA’s Erika Beras brings us the writers’ stories:

Pizza Patron: Our ‘La Chingona’ pies sold despite haters (video)
Last month we made fun of the out-of-touch radio stations who wouldn’t run commercials for Pizza Patron’s massive pepperoni and jalapeño topped pie because the La Chingona name was too, uhm, spicy. Silly squares! The joke was on you, and the triumphant mad men and marketeers at the Texas-based company posted this video Thursday to tell you all about it.
Chinga! Pizza Patron’s slangy ‘La Chingona’ ad scares the squares
The last time POCHO mentioned Pizza Patron was when they pissed people off by advertising free pepperoni pies on June 5, 2012 if you ordered en Español. Elise Roedenbeck covered the story and noted the Pocho Ocho other things you can get for speaking Spanish.
Now the Dallas-based chain is back in the news with a controversial advertising campaign — set to debut at the end of this month — for a loaded pie called La Chingona, a $7.99 large pizza with approximately 90 slices of proprietary jalapeño stuffed pepperoni topped with fresh, diced jalapeños.

Offensive? Skweezy Jibbs calls homie Jose ‘a crazy Mexican’ (NSFW)
There’s a fine line between an honest expression of one’s feelings and being a pendejo. Does YouTube rant-meister Skweezy Jibbs cross the line? Skweezy’s description of his homeboy Jose as “a crazy Mexican” offends a party-goer and sets Skweezy off on a three-minute rant. (Totally NSFW rude language and rude ideas.)
So what do you think? Are people today just way too gosh darn sensitive?
