A Woman Was Spying On Her Neighbors And Got Her Head Stuck In A Fence And I’d Like To Nominate Her For Sainthood

So how bad do you crave the chisme? Be real. I’m pretty sure I can speak for all of us when I say that pretty much everyone is down for gossip.

Like try and tell me you aren’t the person that peers down from their window when they hear an argument outside. Or that you aren’t the type that glances over at the phone of the person sitting next to you on the Metro.

Well one woman has taken that need for chisme to the next level.

In La Virginia, Colombia, a gossipy neighbor needed to know exactly what was going down in her vecina’s home. So this happened.

Yup. She got herself, well her head really, stuck between the bars of the house she was trying to spy on. The woman remained stuck for five hours, five hours, until rescuers arrived to cut away the metal bars.

I mean we’re all down for gossip but you have to exercise caution when trying to get the tea.

Translation: “The supposed curiosity of a woman in Colombia nearly got her killed…”

Like I’m pretty sure nobody wants to get that kind of a headline written about them after going viral.

To be fair…we don’t know for sure if the woman was actually snooping but after going viral, social media was quick to jump to that conclusion.

And yes, some in the photo were definitely laughing at her.

I mean like if I was there I’d be laughing too.

One suggested the man laughing in the photo had to be her husband.

Translation: “Look how the husband shits with laughter”

Because only a husband could get away with laughing at this. And even that’s a stretch.

And now from Colombia to Honduras to the U.S., the woman has made international headlines.

But luckily for her, at least her face isn’t visible in any of the photos so la chimosa mas famosa remains anonymous. For now.

Making headlines isn’t exactly what you want to do when you set out to spy on your vecinos.

Translation: “If she wanted to go unnoticed, she didn’t succeed.”

Usually, you want to be as discreet as possible. It’s safe to say, this woman was not.

But many on Twitter had nothing but mad props to offer this hardcore chismosa.

As one Twitter user replied to a post about the woman by Remezcla, #Respect. You keep doing you just be more careful next time.

The Book About Young ‘Brown Weirdos’ Is Finally Becoming A Musical And We Can’t Contain Our Excitement

Back in 2017, Celia C. Pérez introduced the world to 12-year-old Malú, a Mexican-American punk teenager, in her book “The First Rule of Punk.” Two years later, the critically acclaimed novel is turning into a musical. This past week, the Children’s Theatre Company, the nation’s largest theater for young people, announced it would be adapting the book into a musical.

“The First Rule of Punk” received critical acclaim when it was released for its representation of a Mexican-American tween.

The book is a coming of age story around the life of Malú, a 12-year-old Latina who has a passion for rock and roll, skateboarding and zines. As Malú enters a new middle school, she breaks the dress code, clashes with the cool girls at school and lets her mother down through it all. Yet through it all, Malú’s dad, who lives thousands of miles away, reminds her to never forget the first rule of punk, be yourself.

In response, Malú stands up to the school’s strict administration by taking the high road. She forms a punk rock band of misfits just like her. This becomes a way of expressing herself and a reflection of self-growth.

Celia C. Pérez says she’s excited for a whole new audience to experience Malú’s journey as many others already have.

Perez published zines (self-published works) for over 20 years because of her own longtime love of punk music. Zines play a big part of the punk culture and were often a form of self-expression.

This passion drove her to create the character of Malú who she says came from her own self-interest in “identity and culture.’ Now a whole new audience will get to experience “The First Rule of Punk” with the new musical production.

“It’s such an honor to have ‘The First Rule of Punk’ adapted into a musical by the nation’s leading multi-generational theatre, Children’s Theatre Company and to have BMG and their catalog of iconic artists involved with the production,” Perez said, according to Broadway World. “I am excited for this story to reach new audiences and look forward to seeing it come to life on a stage.”

“The First Rule of Punk” has already left an impressionable mark on young audiences trying to find themselves.

Books have a great power to teach us about perspectives different from ours and at times teach us about ourselves too. Many have taken to social media to express their gratitude for “The First Rule of Punk” and what the book has meant to them finding themselves.

“I saw so much of myself in Malú and I’m so excited about this!!! It’s honestly one of the only books with a Hispanic character that made me feel seen and represented. I love @CeliaCPerez so much for this story,” one Twitter user said.

It’s no surprise the novel has brought people of all ages together and now it will take it’s next step as a musical. We cannot wait to see even more people get to hear the story of Malú.

“I love this book and its themes of navigating cultural collisions, familial tensions, and the struggle to find one’s own voice,” Peter C. Brosius, CTC’s Artistic Directors, said in a statement. “It is a book that leaps off the page with its energy, wit, and truth. I cannot wait to partner with BMG and bring this book to theatrical life with the drive and power of the punk music world.”
