We won’t take Trump’s hate money, so we need your $$ love

[one_half]Last night we noticed that the Donald Trump campaign started placing ads on POCHO, like the one you see in this screen capture.

We get money from ads like this when you click on them, but no amount of money is worth having this pendejo’s lies and hate on our website.

We have instructed the robots at Google’s Adsense to stop placing Trump ads on our site — just like we did with previous Sheriff Joe Arpaio ads and Governor Jan “Bruja” Brewer ads. [Note: It may take a day or two for this crap to disappear from the system.]
Blocking ads from these haters costs us money.

Can you help us make up the difference with a small donation? Click on DONATE!

Every $10, or $20, or $50 will help us make more Ñews y Satire.

MR. POCHO says thanks!








What’s in a trend? Google tracks ‘Latino’ and ‘Hispanic’ over time

ngramHispanic or Latino? This question comes up all the time, and not just during Hispanic Heritage Month, which we insist on calling Latino Heritage Month.

Is there a trend? We asked the Google NGram Viewer to search their big index of published books to see how many times the word “Latino” and the word “Hispanic” were used over time.

Ask Google: Why do Mexicans stare and eat beans?

What did we ever do before the Google? Where did a poor pre-Googlite go to find out the big answers and the meaning of Life, the Universe and Everything? Actually, we could Google that. But why even hypothesize? Google has the answers we want today and knows the questions we want to ask even before we ask them:

Pocho Ocho ways birthday girl Frida Kahlo has influenced our lives

Those eyebrows, that hair, those monkeys. Happy birthday Frida Kahlo! We celebrate your awesome influence on our pocho lives by listing the top eight ways you’ve influenced us.

8. Made us think we, too, could be an artist. After all, she painted her own reality, right?

7. Inspired us to stop plucking your eyebrows. Or maybe you just didn’t feel like a chola anymore.

6. Helped us fall in love. If Frida could love a crazy fat man like Diego Rivera, surely the love of your life — and his panza — are worth the ride, too!

Mexclusive: ‘Google Doodle’ honors Frida Kahlo’s 105th birthday!

(PNS reporting from SILICON VALLEY) In honor of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s 105th birthday Friday, Google is featuring a special Google Doodle commemorating her contributions to international art.

Born on July 6, 1907, Kahlo was a surrealist painter and smoker who is best known for her brilliant self-portraits, her tragic life and her stormy relationships with such global figures as Diego Rivera, Leon Trotsky and Josephine Baker.

Kahlo was known to be uncompromising in her art, her politics and her famous monobrow, which launched a feminist revival and Fridamania craze in the 1990s and also extended the co-ed bisexual experimentation stage from one to two semesters.

And you may ask yourself ‘How did I get here?’

People come to POCHO for unexpected reasons, or at least reasons we never expected. Did they see a link on Facebook (most of our traffic starts there)? Did they get a link in email? Did they see something on Twitter? Did they search with Google? Did a link on another site lead to POCHO?

We like it best when PNS Pocho Ñews Service stories snare the unwary — it’s like we have passed the “truthiness” sniff test and our faux news seems real enough to make people believe.

We get thousands of visitors looking for a certain fictitious Vegas casino, pit bull owners concerned about their breed’s reputation and gossip-lovers seeking the latest news about Eve Mendes.

Do these random visitors know where they ended up?
