When your mom says you’re not allowed to eat more pan dulce.

Featuring: @adi_lene02

Don’t get between a Latina and her pan dulce. And speaking of pan dulce, have you tried pan dulce and ice cream together? If you haven’t, be sure to hit up Horchatería in L.A. It’s actually mind blowing.

Si saben como me pongo, ¿pa qué me invitan?

Featuring: @sallypea

This little dude has moves that can only be truly appreciated at quinceaneras and bautizos. He doesn’t follow the dance that every other kid is doing. He follows the beat of his own drum.

A la Junaga.

Featuring: @geraldalocks

We knew this was going to give La Caída de Edgar a run for his money. But we have to admit that right before the fall, this was probably some of the best moves we’ve seen since JuanGa days — actually including the fall.

No, we’re not getting a pet.

Featuring: @ccdelcid

A tale as old as time: Latinos parents will say that they don’t want any pets in the house but the moment you adopt one, they immediately fall in love with it and the pet instantly becomes the favorite child. Spoiler alert: Latino dads are actually soft AF on the inside.

Umm… my elote looks a little bit like something else.

When you’ve been celibate for a long time and everything around you starts looking like something else. In case you’re in the mood, here are some Latino songs about food that are actually about sexy time.

We all have that one tía.

Featuring: @jasmincausorfilms

I don’t care how much the dress cost. I don’t care if we have guests around. If there’s cake around you best believe someone’s getting their face smashed into it. Also, shoutout to this person because you look like the life of every party and deserve an invitation to every party.

Let’s get avo-control.

Featuring: @periwinklesash

Move over, David Getta. Move over, Test. Move over, Calvin Harris. There’s a new DJ that should be headlining in Vegas and it’s the one and only Guacardo. If you want to get your own Guacardo DJ, click here and use the code SPRING15 for 15% off your entire purchase at checkout.

When she tells you she likes musicians.

Featuring: @jicaaa

Not everybody was born musically talented, but just how the saying goes: fake it till you make it. Even if it means taking a pozole cucharón and using it as your instrument.

Tell me what that mouth do.

Featuring: @lucy24garcia

What they don’t tell you is that taking Jell-O shots is actually harder than taking regular shots. Speaking of shots, if you want a shot glass set that speaks to who you are, be sure to get this season’s Barrio Box which includes these shot glasses and many other goodies.

People for the ethical treatment of pasteles.

Featuring: @priscigl

I think it’s a fact that cake has never actually been eaten at Latino parties. RIP all of the fallen cakes. Y’all were beautiful and I’m sure delicious and I’m so sorry my people have been treating you this way.

Who taught Slender Man how to dance corridos?

Featuring: @roberto_valadez_97

This video is both creepy and funny and all I can picture is what other people at the store were thinking. Keep it up, Slender Man, dance to whatever music your heart desires.

I can already see the chancla flying.

Featuring: @yamilleteflores

Ouch! And I’m not talking about the wall. You know someone got a chanclazo after this video was taken. We cannot confirm nor deny that the kid is okay.

Why did you do this, Sofia??

Featuring: @kristalcastles

Honestly, Sofia was just looking out for y’all. She’s the true protector of the house. The smile at the end has me dying. If you want to reward your pooch with a poncho, click here.

This Family Thought They Had Pulled Off The Perfect Mordida But What The Birthday Girl Did Will Leave You Shook

La mordida, the Mexican tradition of shoving someone’s face into a cake, is always cause for laughter, but this Latina teen is going viral for brilliantly dodging a face filled with icing.

On Monday, Emory posted a video on Instagram of her high school graduation-slash-birthday party. In the short clip, the Latina, who turned 18, is seen doing something most Mexican kiddies only dream of: evading la mordida.

Right when three partygoers push Emory’s head into her rectangle cake, she places a paper plate over her face. As the crowd cheers and chuckles, it’s Emory who has the last laugh when she arises. The teen, with slight white and blue icing on the top of her forehead, reveals a clean face, with her black eyeliner, mascara and gloss all still in tact.

“Bitchhhh,” she yells in a green tank top and denim shorts as her friends and relatives hurray even louder, realizing that Emory cleverly turned the joke on them.

While just a few seconds long, the video has gone viral, with more than 112 thousand views and 245 comments.

The clip has even been shared by influencers like Daquan, whose post, which suggested Emory has a 200 IQ, has more than 3 million views.

Viewers were stunned by the teen’s savvy.

“She just completely changed the entire game! How did we not think of this when we were kids,” one user commented.

“This girls going places fur sure,” another one added.

While it’s common practice in most cultures to put a little icing on the person celebrating their birthday, in Mexico, and Mexican-American communities throughout the US, the fun (or misery, depending on who you ask) goes a little further.

During birthday celebrations, it’s tradition for family and friends to hover around the person who’s going to blow their candles out and chant, “mordida,” “mordida,” “mordida,” which is a call for the cake smash.

No one is safe from la mordida, which translates to “bite” or “take a bite,” not babies celebrating their first birthdays or elders commemorating their feat over the hill.

But now, thanks to Emory’s genius, we all have a quick shield we can use the next time we hear a crowd shouting “mordida.”

A Venezolana Made A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Comic Starring Her Latina Mom And Latinas Can’t Stop Laughing

For eight straight seasons, the nerdiest of fans of the widely obsessed over Game of Thrones series have mulled over theories, conspiracy theories, Comic-Con outfits, and, often the most fun to see, fan drawings. While even the most impressive and realistic renditions of the characters of the series have managed to light us on fire like the breath of a Targaryen dragon, nothing has lit up the Latino fanbase of the series quite like the images created by a Venezuelan fan of the series.

Alie is a Venezuelan artist who draws comics and posts them on Instagram under the pen name @illustralie. She also does a lot of about her mom.

Like most of us, Alie’s work is often intrigued by el camino de la mamá and she’s depicted her own mother’s sense of humor and Latinidad in quiet a few of her illustrations.

With so much hype surrounding the new season of Game of Thrones, Alie’s latest piece comes in great timing.

LOL watch out for spoilers!!

It even features the world’s sweetest version of the White Walker

(Which TBH anyone who saw season 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 and did NOT close their eyes at the sight of the blue-eyed Others know this is nearly damn impossible to do.)

And her bold Mom attacking a WW to get a sweater on it.

Which also TBH is all of us.

LOL and her mom even has classic GOT jokes.

Just really wish she had a spoiler about who that Night King is ya know?

But at least the WW gets some good sopa in the end.

‘Cause there’s nothing seriously better than when mama makes it.

“Sopita de mamá 👌,” one user wrote in response to the comic’s joke.

Of course, Latino GOT fans are giving the best reactions to the post.

“Si las madres intervinieran en GOT jajajajajjaa,” one user wrote in response. Just about everyone agrees that their mom would do the same.
