The Latino Behind The Viral Tweet Of His Mother Dressed Up While Passed Out Says He’s Not Surprised People Loved It

We’ve all pranked a friend or family member while they slept, right? Maybe you’ve drawn on someone’s forehead or you’ve dipped someone’s hand in warm water. Are these pranks cruel? Yes. Are they worth it? Absolutely. Once in a while, someone finds a way to deliver the kind of prank that lives in infamy due to its sheer brilliance. This week, Javier Lerma takes home the prize for best prank played on a sleeping person. The victim was none other than his sleeping mother.

Javier Lerma spent his weekend pulling off an epic dress-up prank, using his mother as the unsuspecting victim.

When Lerma noticed his mom was knocked out, he grabbed whatever he could find and took the above photos. He tells mitú that his mother is a heavy sleeper and did not wake up during the prank. He is also adamant that she was indeed asleep, saying it’s fake.

This isn’t the first time Lerma has pranked his mother. In fact, he admits that they tend to prank each other back and forth.

Some wondered what his mom thought of the photos. Lerma says she was cool with it.

“When she woke up the next day I showed her what I did and she just laughed and smiled and told me she was going to get me back,” Lerma tells mitú.

“I’m the best prankster in the family I’m always come up with new ideas,” Lerma says.

Lerma says that he was confident the tweet could go viral but was surprised when his phone began to blow up with so many Twitter notifications.

Well done, Javier. Well done.

This Latina Mom Forces Dog To Pick Up Its Own Poop

This Latina Mom Forces Dog To Pick Up Its Own Poop

@raquel___r / Twitter

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.

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.

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.

“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.

“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!

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.

We were surprised about this stunning news as well. 

Looks like people got attached to Maxie pretty quickly.

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.

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.

Soledad O’Brien Has Turned Her Twitter Into A Fact-Checking, Takedown Machine And We Live For It

Soledad O’Brien Has Turned Her Twitter Into A Fact-Checking, Takedown Machine And We Live For It

Soledad O’Brien’s journalistic career is known for delivering hard-hitting truths without playing the political game of ‘playing nice.’ She’s calling Trump a racist and she’s calling out The New York Times‘ for refraining from calling Trump a racist because “that language is a turn off to some readers.” 

O’Brien is so matter-of-fact, her show is called, “Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien.” If you’re not watching her show, her Twitter feed is as blunt as it gets. She’s savagely taking down ignorant fathers who wouldn’t know consent education if it hit them in the cojones, and they still don’t know what hit them. Here are O’Brien’s victims from this month alone:

This father who victim-blamed survivors of sexual assault, but he told his daughter to just kick the guy in the cojones so “She’s no one’s victim.”

After one person called O’Brien out for being “a bit harsh” given that “he at least taught her to say no,” someone named Zoe actually had to explain. “It’s not harsh,” Zoe replied. “He only taught her to say no in very specific situations that almost never happen. I guarantee he never taught her how to say no to relatives, friends, boyfriends, bosses, etc – people you can’t just hit due to freezing up, or social/financial/etc consequences.”

RIP, white men and your naive musings about a post-Trump America.

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

Sorry, bro, people of color are simply unfazed to see racism thrive in America. Fox & Friends will never shun Trump so long as he’s stoking the fear-baiting racist fires. O’Brien dared to say what we all couldn’t fathom–Trump will get his own show on Fox & Friends, whether he gives up the Presidency or goes full-on authoritarian.

*GASP* Could racism really be …. systemic?

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

Even the methods used to combat racism are racist. O’Brien, an Afro-Latina woman entirely familiar with racism in America, is just “not shocked.” You can check someone’s privilege based on how surprised they are to learn that racism is systemic. 

We simply cannot.

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

Of the many excuses we hear for why folks voted and continue to support Trump, “economic anxiety” is the biggest excuse for condoning human rights violations and racism like we haven’t seen in a century. O’Brien followers lamented to have to add “fundraising while black” as a life-threatening task in America. Someone else used the GOP’s excuse used for white supremacist mass murderers: “That woman should not have access to video games. At all.”

When a former Navy SEAL trains dogs to “attack school shooters,” O’Brien sees into the future as adding dead dogs to the list of consequences of loose gun laws.

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

“Anything but addressing the gun issues head-on. Dogs. Cats. Flying Squirrels,” comments one Twitter user. Someone else just perfectly encapsulated the dialogue between sensible gun reform advocates and NRA die-hards:

“People: Let’s regulate guns.
‘Merica: No! We’ll give teachers guns.
People: That would be super dangerous. Let’s regulate guns.
‘Merica: No! Backbacks that block bullets!
People: That would be very ineffective. Let’s regulate guns.
‘Merica: No! Dogs that attack shooters!”

Heads up that dogs are not immune to bullets, and shooters can just point downwards toward the dog.

O’Brien also has a special knack for mocking the not-so-newsworthiness of “news.”

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

For some reason, a video clip of Democratic Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren “running in Franconia, NH” went viral. “She has my vote” filled the comment thread. We have a feeling that O’Brien was likely commenting on how silly it is that watching a woman run is news.

She’s not here for people calling men brave for dealing with issues women always face.

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

Everyone in the comments is just shocked that this is even news. That anyone would think this man is anything but handsome. One commenter said that his wife wished he was as “ugly” as Simu Liu.

Also, RIP to the possibly-NOT-a-bot “Amazon Fulfillment Center Ambassador.”

Credit: @soledadobrien / Twitter

@AmazonFCBilly went on to say, “Because people are wondering, yes, Frank was a valued part of the discussion! His insights into the downsides of trade unionism were very valuable!” One person genuinely asked, “If you type this do they give you a bathroom break as a reward?”

We ran the account through bot.me and they’re not a bot. It might be a “Get Out” situation, but not a bot. Maybe O’Brien snapped them out of it. Either way, we’re loving these clapbacks and truth-telling. Gracias.
