These Latinos Are Dropping Some Amazing Jokes On Twitter And They Need To Be Acknowledged

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.

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.

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.

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

To be a star or a planet? That is the question.

Or at least, it was The Question that made heads roll a few years ago and has begun to do again thanks to a revival of an old video.

Six years ago, in 2015 a QVC segment went viral after designer Isaac Mizrahi and his co-host Shawn Killinger got into a heated debate about whether the moon was a star or a planet. Little did they know that the moon, well, it’s actually just a moon.

Now, six years later, the old segment is making waves again.

Mizrahi and Killinger started the strange debate in a clip that is surfacing again on Twitter.

The clip starts out with Killinger holding up a shirt made of green, white, and blue colors before declaring, “This is what we call emerald, but really it’s more of a seafoam.” She then goes onto point out that “it almost kinda looks like what the earth looks like when you’re a bazillion miles away from the planet moon.”

Then in the familiar way that we’ve all done after realizing we might have made a mistake, Shawn mutters the phrase again, contemplating. “The planet moon.”

Not picking up on her hesitations, Isaac agrees “The planet moon.” Copping to her mistake, Shawn asks “Isn’t the moon a star?”

“The moon is a planet, darling,” Isaac replies before pulling his co-host into a sixty-two-second-long debate in which Isaac insists the moon is a planet. “The moon is such a planet I can’t even stand it,” he even declares at one point. In reaction, Shawn attempts to support her argument by going through the planets in our solar system. Unfortunately, she doesn’t get very far and names Earth, Uranus, Saturn, and “the one with the rings.”

This is when Shawn then comes to the conclusion that the Sun is a star too but Isaac quickly replies that “We don’t know what the sun is” meaning that “us” as in the whole world doesn’t know.

The whole thing is only resolved once someone off-camera confirms what most of us all already know, the moon is not a star, a planet, but a natural satellite.

Much to Shawn and Isaac’s chagrin of course.

“A natural satellite? What’s that mean? I don’t like that at all,” Shawn asks suspiciously. “A natural satellite,” Isaac replies, adding. “But things live on it. That means it’s a planet.”

Fortunately, the hosts move on with the show to sell their shirts, but fans on Twitter have yet to forget.

Someone even animated the entire sequence.

Ted Cruz and Seth Rogen Are Currently In the Twitter Feud to End All Twitter Feuds

Ted Cruz and Seth Rogen Are Currently In the Twitter Feud to End All Twitter Feuds

You may be familiar with the actor Seth Rogen, the burly comedian who has starred in hit films like “Knocked Up” and “Neighbors”. Well, it appears that Rogen is about the only person in the world who is able to get under Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s skin.

Since last Wednesday, the two Canadians have been embattled in an expletive-filled, eyebrow-raising Twitter feud.

It all started when Ted Cruz tweeted a criticism of the brand new Biden administration, saying because President Biden rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, he’s “more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh”.

To which Seth Rogen eloquently responded: “F–k off you fascist.”

Normally, bigtime lawmakers ignore the public criticisms of celebrities, but this time, Senator Cruz couldn’t help but take the bait. He screenshotted Rogen’s response and commented about it on his Twitter account.

“Charming, civil, educated response,” Sen. Cruz said. “If you’re a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing…not so much.”

At this point, Rogen took the time to respond: “If you’re a white supremacist fascist who doesn’t find it offensive when someone calls your wife ugly, Ted Cruz is the exact motherfucker for you.” He then added later: “Also I’m in four unions.”

And the debacle just got more intense from there. Cruz responded by calling Rogen a “moron” and saying that the Democratic party believes in the government power to “shut your business, to oppress your faith & to censor your speech.” And added: “Anyone who disagrees, they try to cancel.”

The plot got even thicker, with Rogen doubling down on his claims, this time calling Sen. Cruz a “fascist piece of s–t” with the topper: “Your lies got people killed. You have blood on your hands.”

And in the most bizarre turn of events, the so-called feud (a label that Rogen takes exception to) took an odd detour when the two men began to argue about…Disney’s “Fantasia”?

In an unrelated tweet, Cruz told his Twitter followers that the first film he saw in theatres was “Fantasia”, to which Rogen responded: “Everyone who made that film would hate you.” (Okay, you had to have laughed a little bit, right??)

Ever the one to get the last word in (and apparently having nothing better to do than argue with an actor on the internet?), Sen. Cruz tweeted out: “They’re all dead. So I think we’re good. And Walt Disney was a Republican. Even though you behave online like a Marxist with Tourette’s (screaming “F U! F U!” is really, really clever), your movies are typically pretty funny. I’m sure you hate that I enjoy them.”

To which Rogen revealed that he actually does, indeed, have a mild form of Tourette’s syndrome that just causes twitching, not swearing (plot twist?)

He also chastised Cruz for making light of the syndrome that afflicts many people–including people in Rogen’s family.

And of course, a public Twitter spat wouldn’t be a public Twitter spat without other bloodthirsty spectators jumping into the fray.

Like failed Pennsylvania congressional candidate Dean Browning, who tried to burn Rogen by asking why a “Canadian is so deeply obsessed with American men like @TedCruz”. The “obvious explanation” being that “#SethRogenLovesTedCruz”. Because homophobic jokes are so clever.

Seth Rogen took this as the perfect opportunity to educate Mr. Browning on the little-known birthplace of Senator Cruz. He tweeted: “Ted Cruz is Canadian you stupid f–k.” Well said.

To read the entire, sprawling Twitter exchange, head over to Seth Rogen’s Twitter account. You won’t be disappointed.
