If You Grew Up In A Latino Household, You Know These Items Were Never Used For Their Main Purpose

We’ve probably all searched a thing or two in Urban Dictionary to find out what the slang definition is for something. In our culture, there are so many things that have a double meaning, that’s why we created our own version of a slang dictionary with household items. We’re sure a few of these will take you back to your childhood…

When you look up the definition of an oven, you might find something along the lines of: “a kitchen appliance used for cooking and baking.” BUT, in a Latino household, an oven has quite a different meaning…

You probably rarely used your mom’s oven to bake because it was already being used… as a storage bin. When was the last time you actually used the oven to bake something?

Even the kitchen sink, which is meant to wash dishes, is actually used by Latino parents to wash something, or someone else…

How many of you have pictures of you like the one above? Your mom probably thought you were exactly like washing a dish, except that this dish cries, moves and splashes water at you.

And when it comes to food containers, such as butter, you already know it’s never butter.

If you had 15 butter containers in your fridge and were looking for actual butter, GOOD LUCK.

Same goes for this Doña María Mole, which you guessed it, also isn’t mole.

Pretty much any food product that came in a glass container, turned into some sort of cup or Mickey Mouse Tupperware.

So if you ever think that these food items have just one purpose, think again…

You were trained to use a tortilla as an eating utensil. This is exactly why some meals are almost impossible to eat without a couple tortillas.

Because even something as small and delicate as an egg, has a much larger and powerful purpose.

Who knew eggs had so much power, like the power to conquer evil.

And the same goes for quince centerpieces, which might seem harmless, but can lead to drama and disaster.

If you had more tías than centerpieces, you were asking for trouble.

By now you’ve probably realizing how deceiving Latino household items really are.

Because if you’re Latino, you know sandals are not just cute summer shoes…HA.

And while all of these different definitions might make things a bit confusing…

This is actually genius. Wastes a bunch of energy, but genius idea nonetheless.

…you can also learn A TON from them.

You couldn’t let kids use the water hose for the entire day, that would defeat the purpose of saving money. But using a hose to cool down during summer days didn’t have a price.

The ‘How It Started’ Memes Are Filled With The Funny And Wholesome Content We All Need In 2020

@xolei3 / Twitter

It is not a lie to say that 2020 has been a year of disappointment and high-stress scenarios. We’ve had to quarantine from a virus, wildfires are destroying a lot of land, and well, everything else going on has just made things worse. Fortunately, on Twitter trend is giving everyone a chance to see that things can get better.

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone but one Twitter trend is making life a little better.

We’ve all seen the “How It Started” memes taking over social media in recent weeks. The memes are both funny and inspirational with some showing some amazing glow ups and others showing the crushing reality of everyday life. We have all felt like the man crying over 2020 at some point over the last 7 months. It’s like this year just doesn’t stop.

Relationships are a big part of this meme trend.

Oof. This is painful and so many of us know this to be true. 😭 Sure, we can all blame our relationship woes on the current state of the world. However, that would just be doing a disservice to ourselves and our love lives. Most of us who are single now have been single for a very long time pre-Covid. But, hey, no one knows that you’re lying if you blame Covid.

A few wonderful people highlighted their transition into their true selves.

Stunning. Show-stopping. Magnificent. We love to see it. There is nothing better to see in this world than someone living their authentic truth. Like, go and do your thing. Slay all of the hearts you see, honey, and take no prisoners. We are all better in their world to be surrounded by people living in complete honesty.

The Lil Nas X joined in on the fun and highlighted his own meteoric rise to fame.

The “Old Town Road” singer really did make a big name for himself. Not only did his song get made into a duet and remix with every artist imaginable, he beat Mariah Carey’s record. Lil Nas X went from someone that no one knew to unseating Mariah Carey for longest time spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

There are some very clever takes on this meme.

So, like, who else feels like they are being personally attacked by this meme? College might have been years ago but these memories linger. Tequila is just one of those things that so many of use have to learn the hard way and those lessons stick with you.

Simone Biles gave us one of the most memorable glow ups of the meme challenge.

Simone Biles is one of the most legendary women to ever walk this planet. The way she was able to make herself known around the world as the best gymnast is no short feat. She is and will always be one of the best women to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.

In 2001, Christina Aguilera was a pop princess on the rise.

She further solidified herself in the world of music that year when she joined forces with the powerful voices of Mýa, Pink, and rappers Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliot for a recorded version of “Lady Marmalade.” The track, which had been created for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, became an instant smash and classic. At the time of its release, the song was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 for 5 weeks.

Let us not forget that the song also taught an entire generation the infamous French words “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi (ce soir)?”

Now nearly twenty years after its release, Aguilera is reminding us of her musical chops and the beloved song.

In a video posted to her Instagram page, the Burlesque actress mimed along to a recent version of the song performed by TikTok sensation Lili Hayes. Hayes, who is 72, blew up on Instagram and TikTok a few years ago for her musical posts and attitude. She can often be seen on her pages singing or sporting hats and has gained fame for her sense of humor. She’s been featured in blog posts and major outlets like Vogue.

Her bio reads ‘Over everything. Always a little p****d.’ 

Christina’s parody of Hayes’s hilarious TikTok sent her 6.8 million followers into an internet craze.

Fans labeled the singer a ‘goddess’ for singing the song while dancing in her swimming pool with a glass of wine and an oversized black straw hat. In the video, Aguilera can be seen showing off her playful side while whipping her hair around.

“I feel like I’ve never sounded so goooooood! Yas honey @lili_hayes ! 😂🔥 #RealLadyMarmalade #LadyMarmaladeRemix #tiktok,” she wrote in a caption of the hilarious clip.
