Connie Wang travels to Nagoya, Japan to speak with local women who dress like Chicanas. You won’t believe what happens next!
Bro: if you’re gonna slip a fake ten at least don’t give Hamilton chola brows. Nice try, though. [Spotted at The Echo Saturday night.]
For me, that’s weird. You see the bulk of the first part of my life was bound up with reading—which is all about looking at things, reading words, but has little to do with seeing, with reading pictures.
But after that came college and graduate school with a major in literature—so novels took over (that and critical theory), so words came to dominate the scene of my life.
When Chuy’s sister Angie hogs the bathroom taking selfies, Smiley interrupts the subsequent sibling discussion with insight from author, artist and poet e.e. cummings.
Sure that fine chica gave you her number, but what are you going to do to seal the deal? Hey Vato’s Chuy gives Smiley a lesson in how to talk to the hynas.
She only has one wish, Sandra Bullock told George Lopez in 2009: She wants to be “more Latina.” Sympathetic Lopez gets Bullock a chola makeover.
PREVIOUSLY ON CHOLAS:
“If your intent was to in effect slap Catholics across the face, by putting forth this public depiction of Our Lady as a party girl, during the very week that we honor her as our patroness, then I can only say that from my perspective, you succeeded,” wrote the Rev. Adam Lee Ortega y Ortiz, the rector of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe, in a letter to the editor. “I must voice my outrage and disgust at the decision to depict Our Lady of Guadalupe in such a demeaning manner. I am personally and professionally insulted by the cover.”
POCHO wants to confess, too! Mea culpa, Padre. We have sinned with some of our recent illustrations, like this one of the Virgin contemplating a pregnancy test:
“Who do you think you are?” Reese demanded during the traffic stop. “You can’t treat my man like that! Do you know who I am? If you don’t know now, you will soon, cabrón! Ain’t nobody mess with my man but me!”
Witnesses said Witherspoon’s head bobbed back and she waved her arms erratically.
From the police report:
(PNS reporting from EAST LOS ANGELES) Veronica Gonzalez has a conundrum: Should she go rockabilly and do winged eyeliner or go chola and do winged eyebrows?
“It’s, like, hard, you know? I’m just trying to keep up with my heritage,” Gonzalez told PNS Wednesday.
Gonzalez said that if she went rockabilly it would not only look cute with her new cats-eye glasses, but she would be able to dress more girly. If she went with the chola eyebrows, then she would have to wear more khaki and that’s just not her color.
On the Internets, you can be as Chongalicious as you want. (NSFW language.) Bandwidth, tu sabes, expands to fit the waste available.
(PNS reporting from PDX) Area collector Reynaldo “Ronnie” Morales’ heart was broken Sunday night when a last-minute auction bid from an eBay “sniper” pushed the coveted September 1953 issue of Amazing Future Tales out of his grasp and into the arms of another.
The sniper killed Morale’s chances with a $37.83 winning bid.
Morales had bid $37.62, confident that his bid of $5 and an oddly-random number of pennies more than the highest posted bid was the combination that would win the auction for the rare issue, which featured the first and only installment of Chola Low Riders from Outer Space.
“I sat staring at the screen all Sunday watching those prices and almost missed the Super Bowl. Refresh, refresh, refresh, nada. I was sure it was mine.”
