Dad Jokes Make Us Roll Our Eyes Most Of The Time, But These Will Also Make You Chuckle

Once a year, we get to honor the absolutely ludicrous, outrageously dumb dad jokes that only a Latino padre could concoct. This one goes out to all the dads on Día del Padre for all the truly heroic effort they’ve put into making us smile-grimace.

We love you como nadie.

We’ve figured out the secret to all your jokes, dad.

Y’all are just twisting words around and we love it. It isn’t situational humor or anything with a super long backstory. Hard punches that are so dumb you feel fooled.

You have to say some of these out loud.

The best jokes are the ones that are so dumb it takes us a couple of times to get it. But when we do… ????

Luckily, one Spanish word has 47 different meanings.

That’s why Latino dad jokes are the best dad jokes. The language is basically built for you guys to twist our arms.

Back in 2003, you really got into the “Soy” jokes.

Like, “What if soy milk is just milk introducing itself?” Yeah, yeah, we get it. Bilingual jokes are the best.

Just say it out loud… slowly.

We’re not sure when you all started learning how to meme, but it’s slowing us down. Thank you for that. ???? 

If your mom and dad could create a meme it would look like this:

Mama out here trying to prove her point and dad backing her up with the dad jokes. This is every Latino family dynamic, right?

This *terrible* joke that was said at every family gathering from 2001-2011.

It’s a vintage dad joke. It has a different shine on it now.

Still, so bad.

Thank you to the dad who provided a key to his dad joke.

Other dads, take note. If you were raised Catholic, you already had they key brainwashed into you during all twelve years of CCD classes.

Dad joke of the year:

Wait for it… wait for it… ????????????????????????????

This isn’t a joke. We know you’re all dead serious when the “tu sabes lo que dicen” comes out.

Sorry Jade, we might all consider the ends of those sentences a joke, but our dads ain’t playing. Hope this made a hard-working comedian of a dad laugh a little. We love you.

Jenny Solares Is One IG Creator Everyone Needs To Follow

A year in quarantine has led so many of us to doom scroll and get lost in social media. As a result, some people are getting more recognition and one person who should be getting your attention is Jenny Solares, or @es_jenny_solares on Instagram.

Jenny Solares is here with the relatable content we all want.

A post shared by Jenny • Sad Girl (@es_jenny_solares)

The Guatemalan content creator knows what the people want to see. How many times have you heard someone say that they like a woman who can eat? Well, as Jenny urges, prove it, y’all. Take your lady out and get her all of the food that she wants. Let’s go!

Now, that’s how you add salsa to someone’s food. If you didn’t already think this way when adding salsa to your tacos, you definitely will now. It’s just impossible not to.

We also love seeing her collaborating with Estefania Saavedra, a fellow Latina creator. A rising tide lifts all boats so we appreciate seeing these Latinas working together.

Solares is even creating brand new identities.

Cholas will forever have a place in our hearts. We know cholas. We love cholas. We are related to cholas. Solares’ creation of the glola is truly a work of art. Just because you’re a chola doesn’t mean you can’t love glitter and colors.

She’s even got some of the Covid humor in check.

There are going to be so many school assignments about this year in the coming years. Kids will be learning about the time the world stood still as we battled an out-of-control virus. It is going to be us having to tell the little ones about that time and it’s going to be rough. Get ready to reliving everything we have been dealing with for the last year.

On top of all of the comedy, Solares is ready to show her fans some real love for their support.

“Thank you all for letting me be me. Thank you for appreciating my silliness, my craziness, my songs, my dances, my imperfections,” Solares tells her fans in a year-end video. “Thank you for letting me be myself. This year was full of so much sadness, uncertainty, frustration, and, for a lot of people, loneliness. Thank you all for not letting me feel that loneliness.”

Thank you, Jenny. Your comedy has been a bright spot for so many during an incredibly hard and sad year.

This Hilarious Viral Video is Being Called the Latino Version of ‘Get Out’

This Hilarious Viral Video is Being Called the Latino Version of ‘Get Out’

We’ve all experienced it before–the nervousness of meeting your partner’s parents. And if you’re in an interracial relationship, that nervousness grows exponentially.

That’s why this video of a young Latino man who is hesitant about entering his white girlfriend’s Trump-supporting family’s house has gone viral.

It’s #relatable.

The video starts off with the unnamed boyfriend narrating what’s happening to him as his girlfriend practically drags him into her parent’s home.

In Spanish, he says “I’m going to visit my girlfriend’s parent’s house. The house is very beautiful and she wants me to go inside. But I’m not going to do that because there’s a problem.”

At this point, he pans up to focus on a “Trump” sign prominently displayed on the front lawn.

He turns the camera around to show his own very worried face. The young man’s girlfriend tries to assure him that everything is okay, promising him that her parents are “going to like you”.

The young man tells her to go on without him because he “doesn’t want to die” today. “Maybe tomorrow, yes. But today–no,” he says.

His girlfriend keeps insisting he follow her in until he finally says: “They don’t like me!” before zooming in on the “Trump/Pence” sign one final time. The comedic timing is *chef’s kiss* impeccable.

The video is captioned “This Spanish remake of ‘Get Out’–a witty nod to the 2017 horror film.

As a refresher, “Get Out” centers on a young Black man in an interracial relationship who visits his white girlfriend’s family for the weekend. Soon, he realizes the family is not quite as idyllic as they’re pretending to be. Before long, he realizes his life is in danger.

The movie accurately depicted the real-life horror of racism and white supremacy through a cinematic lens. Phrases like “the sunken place” (the place the main character went when he’s paralyzed by his girlfriend’s mother) became cultural shorthand for: the “place an oppressed person goes when they have become silent or compliant to their own oppression” (thanks Urban Dictionary).

Internet commentators chimed in with their own thoughts and opinions about the super relatable video.

One Reddit user knew exactly how the young man felt. “As a biracial person who dated a girl from a very conservative Republican family, they never let me forget that I was biracial,” he said. “They brought it up almost every day.”

Another knew the struggles of having family members with different views from their own: “I have friends and family members that have been radicalized.. it’s very difficult to have a conversation about anything anymore that doesn’t end with vitriol.”

Another Reddit user had more sympathy for the man’s girlfriend. “I feel bad for the girl honestly,” they said. “We may be able to choose who we befriend, but we can never choose our parents.”
