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.

@justyna_o_ / Twitter

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.

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.

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.
