Apparently, everything is happening on Twitter these days, including American foreign policy announcements. The social media giant has become the go to place to keep up with politics and give your brain and heart a break from politics. Fortunately, it is really easy to find just the comedy on Twitter and here are some of the most relatable and hilarious Latino moments on Twitter so far.

1. Our mothers are low key the best at dodging any and all questions.

@tlrnlo / Twitter


LMAO. How many times has your own mother thrown your father off her trail? There were many days where we would help mom hide new purchases because dad doesn’t understand spending money.

2. The betrayal we all know that is Sephora’s beauty insider rewards.

@viviunuu / Twitter


The audacity of these ridiculous gifts is astounding. Like, who as Sephora realized that we could be fooled into accepting these Barbie makeup pieces as legitimate makeup? We’ll take it but only because we worked for it.

3. The classic non-verbal chancla threat had a moment.

@GimmeApenny / Twitter


Low key, we are all waiting for the time in our lives that we just slip a chancla off and the world stands still. You know that feeling from watching your mom do it. You can tell from the guy’s reaction that he knows what a chancla in the hand means for him. LOL

4. La Chona has gotten all of the abuelas on their feet.

@danielacelinaaa / Twitter


It is even better that she was able to use her kitchen skills to create a dope dance. Got to admit, you love your abuelas for all of their secret talents.

5. You can’t forget about any kind of physical discomfort.

@sadqueer4life / Twitter


True story: As a grimy, sporty kid, I had MRSA for months before my mom decided that hydrogen peroxide and sleeping with garlic under my pillow wasn’t going to cut it and I finally saw a doctor.

We have to stay vigilant, amigos.

6. We’ve got some very wise fashion police on the internet representing us.

@peachy___queen / Twitter


Who hasn’t experienced this unfortunate wardrobe malfunction from sleeping with a tank top? It’s almost like they don’t want you to sleep in these tops.

7. Perspective is everything and this Latino tweeter wasn’t afraid of it.

@MatteoGenota / Twitter


Low key, this is probably one of the most terrifying images you’ll find on the internet. Thomas clearly has some very dark thoughts and we should all be a little more weary around the tank engine.

8. We have learned how to pick ourselves up after the worst situations.

@YenniferGoVegan / Twitter


“You look cute, boo.”

“You’re flawless.”

“Eres más perfecta que nunca.”

9. Our superstitions and religious beliefs have come through in a clutch.

@paola__janet / Twitter


The World Cup had every Mexican fan on edge because, and let’s be honest, El Tri loves to choke at the World Cup. This abuela’s blessing did enough to help at the beginning but not even divine intervention could help the team advance too far.

10. A lot of the Spanish language is giving one name to an entire industry.

@jeamontanez / Twitter


It does not matter what kind of cereal it is. Literally every brand of cereal is Con Flay because that is just something that our families know about. There is also all kinds of sugar added to the real Corn Flakes.

11. It’s always fun to make fun of yourself, tbh.

@blindsiren / Twitter


Some people are just not meant to be in front of the camera and those people are usually great with words. A few fortunate souls are able to do both but it is very rare or takes a lot of effort.

12. Beauty products, amirite?

@Colorfulkkaylaa / Twitter


Was this a part of the Sephora Beauty Insider rewards? One of the greatest disappointments in our lives has to be getting something as a reward for the first time in Sephora only for it to be literally worthless.

13. Latinos stay ready with necessary life advice.

@barbieenriquezz / Twitter


Sure. There are other things you can do to get your family to celebrate you. However, none of them will result with flowers, usually. Instead, major milestones, like your First Communion, comes with prayer cards, rosaries, and other things you don’t really use.

14. While everyone talks about Latino time, we know that we just need time to plan.

@champagnefeel / Twitter


Seriously. We don’t do spontaneous because we were not raised that way. Everything has a plan and we spend months developing said plan. No Latina mother just lets things fly by with no planning.

15. Some tweets show the secret language we have with our families.

@_Evyvg / Twitter


There is something that feels so powerful when you read these things. Every major store and brand has a different name when it comes out of our parents’ and grandparents’ mouths.

16. You have to show respect to the people who make your life better.

@ashleydragulaa / Twitter


There is no question about that. Some times you have to show some respect to the people who change the game. Like, sure you don’t want strangers knocking on your door, but you also don’t want to miss out on some tamales.

17. Sibling humiliations are the most perfect tweets.

@AriannaModels / Twitter


She might be really embarrassed and sad right now, but she is going to be so happy this photo exists. Everyone wants to be Cardi B right now so she’ll be happy that she looks like her now.

18. This Twitter user quickly shut down this narrative.

@malazxadm / Twitter


Did your man literally put a crown on your head? Didn’t think so and as such he will get the look that he gets. Like, I love him and all but if he doesn’t give me a crown, how am I going to give him a princess look?

19. There have been some strong lines drawn when it comes to teaching abuelos how to use social media.

@camillard / Twitter


Older people should not be surprised by this kind of pushback here. Sorry, not sorry. We need to keep some things sacred and protected, like democracy for those of us young enough to have to live with the consequences.

20. And, here’s the realest tweet of them all.

@kinkypinata / Twitter


Say it louder for the people in the back. I want my sexual liberation back.

These 20 Latino Sayings Will Get You Through Any And Every Day

Life is complicated. Luckily, Latinos have sayings, or refrains, that help with managing expectations and making better choices. Beyond offering sound advice, some clever sayings, when dropped like jewels at just the right moment, help transform tension into laughter. While some sayings seem outdated, folk witticisms leftover from the early days, they address elements of the human condition that are timeless like love, jealousy, ingratitude, and morality. Whether deciding to stay in a long-distance relationship or looking for an old-school diss, these 20 Latino sayings are worth memorizing and dishing out the next time a golden opportunity presents itself.

Talk About Love

1. Mejor sola que mala acompañada.

Better to be alone then among bad company. This saying is great for those moments when the fear of being alone starts to kick in. More deeply, this timeless saying is also reflective of the importance of self- love.

2. Amor de lejos, felices los cuatros.

In long-distance love, four people are happy. This pessimistic proverb suggests long-distance relationships provide fertile ground for infidelity. This saying came about before technology helped couples stay more in touch than ever. And yet, the possibility remains.

3. Juntos pero no revueltos.

Together but not mixed. This dicho is the equivalent of saying, “It’s complicated.” It’s a great way to explain why a couple doesn’t live together, or why they are not married.

4. Un clavo saca otro clavo.

A nail removes the other nail. The meaning behind this refrán is that a new relationship, or lover, can help a person get over a failed relationship.

5.  Ojos que no ven, corazón que no siente.

Out of sight, out of mind. It’s hard to say this refrán without thinking about Alexis & Fido’s 2009 hit song.

6. Dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres.

Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are. This saying has come out of many parents’ mouths. It’s a perfect proverb for helping a person decide what kind of company they should keep.

7. Más sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo.

The devil knows more because he is old than because he is the devil. In other words, with age comes wisdom. This saying also warns against elders who may be sly or have bad intentions.

8. Con un dedo no se tapa el sol.

The sun cannot be covered with a finger. This is a great piece of advice that addresses the way self-deception is harmful. It also calls out quick fixes that don’t serve to address larger issues.

9. En boca cerrada no entran moscas.

A closed mouth does not catch flies. This idiom more accurately translates to ‘silence is golden.’ This refrán extols the virtues of discretion.

10. El que no llora, no mama.

The baby who doesn’t cry, doesn’t get milk. This saying is akin to ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease.’ A great refrán serving to inspire vocalization of needs and wants.

Insults Que Arden

11. A otro perro con ese hueso.

To another dog with that bone. It’s the “talk to the hand” of all the idioms. Deploy this saying at the sight of deception. 

12. Se cree la última Coca Cola del desierto.

He/She thinks they are the last Coca-Cola in the desert. A third-degree burn, this little gem calls out people who think they are more attractive or desirable than everyone else.

13. Se cree mejor de la bolita del mundo.

He/She thinks they are the best in the world. The exact translation fails to convey the hilarity of this saying. While also a diss to those who think they are hot stuff, the saying reduces the entire planet into a tiny, little ball.

14. Se fue de Guatemala a Guata-peor!

This a saying that relies on a play on words, mala meaning bad, and peor meaning worse. The idea is that the person went from one bad situation to an even worse situation.

15. Cuando tu ibas, yo venia.

When you were coming, I was leaving. A great diss from an elder, this dicho also conveys a knowing that comes with age. It works particularly well when directed at teenagers who attempt to be deceptive but are really transparent. 

For the Nostalgia and the LOLs

16. Quien fue a Sevilla, perdió su silla.

Who went to Sevilla lost his/her chair. Here is a fun phrase that relies on wordplay and rhyme. 

17. Tirar las puertas por las ventanas.

Throw the doors out the windows. This is what you say when you plan to have an absolute blow out party! Think of New Year’s Eve, Cinco de Mayo, or birthdays.

18. Vete a freír papas.

Go fry potatoes. While this saying may seem like an insult, it works as a playful way to tell someone to go to hell without sounding so vulgar.

19. Por si las moscas.

For if the flies. This is more of a nostalgic phrase that means ‘just in case.’ Use it when deciding on whether or not to pack that snack bar or an umbrella. 

20. Calabaza, calabaza, todo el mundo para su casa!

Pumpkin, pumpkin, everyone go home! Our final phrase is a fun way to end the fiesta, or bring the gathering to a close.

VIDEO: Latina Mom Makes Family Dog Pick Up Its Own Poop And It Is Peak Latina Mom

Latina moms aren’t about animal life. They’ve told you a million times, why would they want an animal in the house who will undoubtedly destroy the yard, poop all over the place, and ultimately end up having to clean up after them? Because as much as you declare that you will clean up after the pet, you never actually get around to doing it. It makes no sense for an animal to take up space, be a burden on the household, and cost extra money that you don’t have. Yes, we know, no pets in the house. We also know that moms have a sweet spot for the vulnerable. So let’s just say you bring a dog or cat home, there’s no way in hell your mom will throw it out on the street (we hope not anyway). They will, however, demand, the house remains clean at all times no matter what. Case in point.

This little doggy named Maxie accidentally left his poop on the couch and mama was not too pleased.

Credit: @raquel___r / Twitter

Her daughter Raquel caught the whole thing on her cell and her mom is going off on their dog Maxie. “Para que no lo vuela hacer,” she said as she’s making the dog pick up paper towels with both paws and carefully pick up the poop without ever once getting it on her own hands. So brilliant, and yet how did she manage to do that? We’re so impressed.

You can hear Raquel laughing the entire time, and the mom proclaims that Maxie the dog can’t even bear to look at his own poop. 

Credit: @raquel___r / Twitter

Poor Maxie looks ashamed as he’s being dragged to the bathroom. Yes, she took the dog to the bathroom so he could flush it down the toilet. “Cochino” she tells Maxie. “And don’t do that again!”

This wasn’t the first time Maxie got in trouble for making a mess. A while ago he got reprimanded for tearing up tissue and leaving it all over the place.

Credit: @raquel___r / Twitter

“I’ve had enough with you,” she tells Maxie, and once again makes him grab his own mess, with her help of course. Maxie again looks guilty as charged and won’t look at the trash but understands what he did wrong. 

People on social media could relate to poor Maxie because their moms forced their dog to clean up their mess too! We had no idea this was a thing.

Now that we’ve seen at least two dogs forced to pick up after themselves, it doesn’t look too hard. 

This dog had it rough though. 

Credit: @ssambenitezz / Twitter

“You don’t do that!” mom tells the dog. We think he learned his lesson, however, that whole house looks sort of messy, so who’s really to blame?

By the way, cats can pick up stuff too.

So to all the moms that pretend to hate pets, we know the truth. You’re a softy!

Credit: @Gabzillaax / Twitter

That goes for dads too!

For any kid (or adult) still living at home, if your parent says they don’t want a pet in the house, just bring it on by. They’ll be part of the family in no time. 

We do have some sad news to report. The video that Raquel posted of her dog Maxie was kind of old, and she informed her followers that Maxie died late last this year.

Credit: @raquel___r / Twitter

The video is an old video fo the little pup. While Maxie is no longer with us physically, he has made a mark on everyone who has seen the video and we have to thank him for that.

People on social media weren’t too thrilled to hear this kind of sad update.

Credit: @sealionceline / Twitter

We were surprised about this stunning news as well. 

Looks like people got attached to Maxie pretty quickly. 

Credit: @0401gisselle / Twitter

Poor little guy. Do you think the trauma of having to pick up his own poop is what made pass away?? That would be horrible and probably not something you could prove anyway. Plus, we doubt Raquel’s mom would want to know that he suffered from PTSD from mortification of having to pick up his own poop. 

We’re pretty sad about this too. 

Credit: @thechynnabee / Twitter

Oh, Maxie!!

We’ll always have these sweet memories of you having to face the humiliation of having to pick up your own poop and throw it in the toilet.

Never forget.
