Gabiekook shows us how to make Korean pork belly bulgogi tacos with peanuts. But first you need to answer her question: [[우리집에왜왔니?]] 국가비의 코리안 타코편 (Why did you come to my house?) Aside from the religious issues we have regarding wheat vs corn tortillas, the marinade and saucing stuff look muy rico! Oh, and nice mustache!
Korean fast food chain Mexicana Chicken wants you stop, look, and listen, and then try their new pink strawberry chicken, yellow banana chicken and green cantaloupe chicken. For realz.

Tagalog? If you’ve got cooties, or play with a yo-yo, or live in the boondocks, you’re speaking Tagalog.
There are also unexpected results in Texas and Florida and New York and Illinois and…. Here’s the spoken language third place map:
