I’m all for a dish soap that removes tough stains, but if you really want to claim to be a grown-up and with the exception of certain reasonable extenuating circumstances, you shouldn’t have dishes that have been lying around with food stuck on them for 24 hours.

Florida of the day: No biggie

Last night, in what will likely be remembered as a defining moment in this gong show of an election, Marco Gutierrez, founder of Latinos for Trump (talk about working against your own self-interest!) gave an intended-to-be-ominous warning that there would be “taco trucks on every corner” if the short-finger orange vulgarian didn’t become president.

Here are captioned still frames from that moment:

Simply put, what he’s saying is: “I come from a people who need to be brought under control.”

This Tio Tomas is a racist campaigner’s wet dream: a member of a visible minority who’s only too happy to share his self-loathing to further promote the idea of the white male as the preferred default person. I hope he doesn’t like tacos, because I can’t imagine that there are too many taco places that would be willing to serve him after that statement.

…my first thought was “Hey, I’d love to have a taco truck on my corner!” Besides, it would go well with our local ice cream place:

I’m not the only one who expressed that sentiment…

…and in the end, it looks like the day of the election — Tuesday, November 8, 2016 — shall henceforth be known as Taco Tuesday!

And to anyone in the business of selling tacos: this is a once-in-a-lifetime marketing opportunity. Take advantage of it!
