Check it out: One frantic minute of punk-cumbia La Cucaracha (marijuana que fumar) by Piñata Protest. They are from San Antonio, TX, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
The Jewish holiday of Chanukah חנוכה starts Saturday night, so Hebrew hermanos Jaquann and Luis prepare potato latkes (pancakes) one of the season’s signature treats. Remember: Chanukah is the Festival of Lights, bitches. (Totally NSFW.)
Abuela knows best, amirite?
She recommends these old-fashioned remedios for whatever ails you:
Does it matter that you don’t eat chile? Or that this special hot sauce will burn a hole in your ulcer? No, eat it, you’ll see how much better you feel.
7. Nopal or linaza (cactus or flax seed)
If there’s something wrong with you, let’s flush it out. Sure, you will be spending the next week in the bathroom, but by the time you come out, whatever was ailing you will be long gone.
6. Rubbing an egg all over you while saying a prayer. (Una limpia con huevo)
Did your abuelita learn this ritual in church? Hell no, but for whatever reason, when she’s rubbing a cold egg all over you saying a Catholic prayer, it somehow makes you feel better. By the time that egg sucks up whatever evil eye someone gave you, the idea that this ritual is strange and old world will have slipped your mind.
