We’ve memorialized the finest nuggets of gold Latinos have overheard around America. Tbh, some of these are absolute gold and worth reading.

You’re welcome.

Parents talking about Cardi B takes the top spot.

I would have loved to see Cardi B as power ranger. That would have been an amazing moment in cinematic history.

There are also some existential musings that will make you really think.

@anthonyvaladez / Twitter

Santa Monica gente actually see their therapists. That was a $175 gold nugget you just consumed.

We’re all upset about prescribed gender roles.

My feet are bigger than your brother’s and I prefer olive green to pastel pink. Also, they’re cheaper. However, buy whatever socks you want.

Being a girl has its benefits, tho.

@yoitpaul / Twitter

You’ll make more money and will probably never be harassed or assaulted, but us girls cry it out and live longer. That’s just science.

Sometimes, we hear the strangest things.

@moviemanny / Twitter

Us Latinos, we’re all a bunch of sweaters. It’s how we survive that tropical life. Cry it out, sweat it out, whateva, we’re thriving.

Corroborated fact: Cardi B is all our Reina’s.

@JulissaB / Twitter

“They see pictures they say goals.” I’m seeing Latinos infiltrating Beverly Hills and I’m here for it.

This overheard can mean only one thing.

@SadDiego / Twitter

Someone’s target audience was the Dalai Lama and nobody course corrected that until the screenplay was done. Get better friends, mija.

It’s 2018 and I need therapy for this one.

@reneerdz / Twitter

I’m not saying we haven’t all considered it ourselves, but I feel triggered re: desperate times. Can there just be affordable tuition or something already?

When your parents only take you to the nice part of town.

@nicnacc1 / Twitter

Unfortunately, you can’t believe everything you hear…or think. It’s pretty clear that these two young ladies live in a privilege bubble.

If you ever wondered what LA was like in a nutshell.

@luisapthomson / Twitter

A truer tweet about Angelenos does not exist. Most things enter someone’s home because of the whimsical fancy it makes them feel.

We all need to know where this one happened.

@morinotsuma / Twitter

We’ve all seen videos of people interacting with bats. Some videos show them being adorable little furbabies while other show them flying around the house like assassins. How do you even begin getting one out without being bitten?

We like to insert ourselves while we are eavesdropping.

@manatcell / Twitter

Hebrew and Russian is an interesting mix, but so is Spanglish. So, adding dale for some flare here would make some sense.

Some true, and disturbing facts, were made.

@guavarrama / Twitter

Might as well embrace your flaws. How else will you be able to succeed in this world?

Mystery solved: this mom was Latina.

@GiselleMaBell / Twitter

Our mami’s have been tricking us for our whole lives to make cleaning feel like either a game or a birthright. It usually worked but now we know the tricks.

Reminders that life is worth living:

@anacastela / Twitter

The mere truth that you survived middle school means you can survive anything. They say life gets harder, but I’ll take the bills and work life over the torture of being surrounded by tiny humans going through puberty… while you’re in puberty.

Some of these really took a turn that we did not expect.

@reallyandrea / Twitter

Woah. That’s some disrespectful language happening there.

Everything about this is so offensive.

@Oscardemuriel / Twitter

How is this phrase even a thing?

Never let nerd speak go quietly into the night.

@ariabonito / Twitter

Always blast it on Twitter, especially when it’s a dad joke beyond saving.

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.

A Twitter User Found Shrimp Tails And Baked Rat Caca In His Cinnamon Toast Crunch

A Twitter User Found Shrimp Tails And Baked Rat Caca In His Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Yeah… this is one cereal box prize we’ll pass on.

Once upon a time, it was considered to be a real treat if you found something that wasn’t food in your breakfast cereal box. From sticker tattoos and puzzles to action figures, as kids, a cereal box presented quite a bit in the way of motivation when waking up early on school mornings.

Recently, however, a man came across a surprise in a General Mills Cinnamon Toast Box that’ll be sure to make you think the next time you reach for those Wheeties.

Writer and comedian Jensen Karp says he found shrimp tails, string, and what appears to be mouse poop in his Cinnamon Toast cereal box.

In a tweet he posted on Monday, which has since gone viral and retweeted more than 11,500 times, the comedian shared the strange discoveries. “Ummmm @CTCSquares – why are there shrimp tails in my cereal? (This is not a bit),” he asked in a tweet on Monday.

It didn’t take long for the Cinnamon Toast cereal account to reply that the shrimp-looking things were, not shrimp tails but rather chunks of cinnamon and sugar.  “After further investigation with our team that closely examined the image, it appears to be an accumulation of the cinnamon sugar that sometimes can occur when ingredients aren’t thoroughly blended,” the account replied. “We assure you that there’s no possibility of cross-contamination with shrimp.”

In response, Karp tweeted “Ok, we’ll after further investigation with my eyes, these are cinnamon coated SHRIMP TAILS, you weirdos,” he wrote. “I wasn’t all that mad until you now tried to gaslight me?”

It didn’t take long for Twitter to express how unimpressed they were by the brand’s explanation with a barrage of memes and replies.

Twitter users also expressed concern for those with shellfish allergies.

Karp went onto share more photos of his cursed cereal, this image showing what appears to be baked-on rat poo. Another tweet showed a string found in the same box. One user replied to the images sharing that it was possible that a mice or rat burrowed into the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal ingredients and brought in a few of their own belongings.

In a final follow-up photo of the other bag included in the family-sized box of cereal, Karp revealed what “appears to include … dental floss.”

Though the saga continues, Karp revealed that the company asked him to send them the product so that they could get down to the root of the problem.
