Which Mexican Chip Are You Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

Savory or spicy? A subtle crisp or an obnoxious attention-seeking crunch? There’s a chip for every personality, which is why we thought we’d go ahead and pick out which one of our favorite brands of Mexican chips can best be connected to each sign of the Zodiac.

Now, which carby delight best describe you in chip form? Apologies if we seem a little salty with these, it’s only because we’re comparing people to convenience store junk food. So, which one are you, my sweet little snacks?

Aries & Sabritones 

An Aries loves a kick as much as they have to be the most interesting person in the room. Since these Sabritones are unlike your usual crunchy chip situation with their puffed out egos – sorry, Aries 😉 – and their commanding fun but spicy flavor, you’ll fight whoever says these chips aren’t the bomb the same way you’d go after anyone who doesn’t respect your authority.

Taurus & Santitas

Loyal and reliable, Taurus. What’s more you than the chip that’s always $2 because it’s friggin’ printed on the bag? You’re consistent, no matter what grocery store we may find you in, and just like this family-sized bag, you’re always full of hard work.

Even if that hard work is eating the entire bag – something we’re not afraid of taking on single-handedly. Sharing? No thanks. Taureans are a one mate type of sign, anyway! This bag is mine!

Gemini & Doritos Tapatío 

Talkative Geminis are also known for their love of food. I guess it’s the only way they can keep their energy up for all that gabbing! More often, they’re known for their particular love of junk food, whether it be sweet or salty, which is why Doritos con Tapatío is very, very Gemini.

Two-sided, much like you! Is it a bag of Doritos or a bottle of Tapatío?! When you can’t make up your mind, porque no los dos?

Cancer & Tostito’s Scoops

Cancers are all-around good people. Hard-working, nice, and imaginative. The Tostito’s scoops of human beings. You’re consistent with your flavor and universal in your skills, even if those skills mean scooping up all that salsa.

Probably a Cancer came up with the idea to turn a tortilla chip into a scoop, anyway. Nice work! You’re also a true friend, and true friends bring the queso with that bag of chips. Mind picking some up on the way over? Thanks!

Leo & Adobadas Flavored Sabritas

Wow, a chip made to taste like a spicy pork dish. Pretty ostentatious. Right, Leo? Kind of just as attention-seeking as you are! The flavor of this chip packs a punch and is a fun new take on the otherwise bland and greasy flavors of Lays chips.

Yeah, these aren’t even tortilla chips! Sounds as flaky as you, lion! Umm, kiddiiiiiing. But not really.

Virgo & Mission Original Tortilla Strips 

You’re analytical in your choices to make sure you’re making the best possible one, so obviously you’d go with the chip that has…a mission. Ugh, sorry. Couldn’t help it. At the same time, you’re also shy with your choices, so you’d go with an easy, seemingly dependable option.

You’re all work, and these chips mean simple, tortilla chip business with no frills. Congrats, you’re as basic as the most common grocery store chip brand barbecuing dads love!

Libra & R.W. Garcia Veggie MixtBag

 

As a Libra, you’re diplomatic and fair-minded. “Why not include all vegetable flavors?!” you’d ask, weighing them all out on your little chip scales.

With that commitment to cooperation, you’re also indecisive, so a bag of mixed flavors is basically the best way to sum you up. I guess thank you for standing up for other vegetables being represented in chip form? You can eat these, we’ll pass.

Scorpio & Takis Fuego 

Just like Takis Fuegos, Scorpios aren’t for the faint of heart. These chips are for the passionate, the intelligent, the fearless. Don’t even think about offering a scorpion some lame Lay’s. Who the hell do you take them for?

No, a Scorpio is someone who ignites the snack flame of your heart and the burn in your butt soon to follow. But remember, you ain’t fancy. You think you’re hot shit, but in reality, we can still find you at any neighborhood 7-Eleven, scorp. Thanks for the wild ride!

Sagittarius & Chicharrones 

Like the beloved baked skin of a pig, you’re generous, well-traveled, and funny, Sag. I mean, who’s idea was it to eat the pigskin? And why does it taste good? Eating the pigskin is like being too lazy to wait to get to the rest of the pig so they were like, screw it! Just eat the first layer you hit!

Basically the same as your impatience, Sag. Good thing there’s no such as horse chips or you’d be in trouble. You’re also generous and love to share, just like the folks who eat chicharrones instead of regular chips. They’re a special breed.

Capricorn & Mission Original Tortilla Strips

You’re responsible and disciplined, Capricorn, and just like these bland-ass chips at every grocery store chain, you’re at least consistent in being there and probably being on sale. That being said, who do you think you in that fancy-ass bag pretending like you’re a better chip than you are?

You really think you’re the epitome of talent, erm, I mean chip, but just because you work hard to get your ass in every Walmart doesn’t mean you’re the best, honey. You do your job, though. We can’t deny that.

Aquarius & Yuca Chips

Hey, Aquarius! Um, yeah, you. You’re the undisputed weirdo of the zodiac – the one who’s a little off in all the best ways. You’re spontaneous, quirky, and authentically YOU at all times. So who says you’d be like any old run-of-the-mill tortilla chip? Please.

When everyone else tries to push the status quo, you’re already on another planet. That’s why yuca chips are you in a nutshell, err, I mean, a bag. A unique flavor, just like you. You may not be for everybody, but who wants to be liked by everyone? That’s just exhausting.

Pisces & Mission Organics Blue Corn 

Wow, it’s blue. As in the color of water. Because you’re a fish. Get it? Blue corn chips, just like you, are healthier and therefore wiser. Wow, you’re just SO much more in tune with the world, Pisces. You’re so artistic you deserve a chip as ingenious as you.

Don’t get all victimized when people don’t feel like eating your whole bag, though. Not everyone is as deep as you and your subtle taste of sea salt. Isn’t it ironic that this chip also looks like a teardrop? Enjoy the crunch, emotional Pisces.

This Little Girl Went Missing And A Teacher Blamed Her Parents And Mexican Culture

This Little Girl Went Missing And A Teacher Blamed Her Parents And Mexican Culture

YOUTUBE

It seems that these days, we’re inundated with horrific stories of children suffering abuse, going missing, or suffering at the hands of an adult that they placed their trust in. But, it’s less common to hear about a teacher’s opinions about those stories. Well, one teacher decided to weigh in on a recent abduction – and while we’d like to think that most teachers would share words of wisdom in a troubling situation, it seems that this teacher needed some education herself.

Let’s start with the abduction.

Instagram / @empressempire144

Five-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez went missing from a playground in Bridgeton, N.J., in broad daylight on September 16. It was sometime around 4pm, when Dulce and her three-year-old brother were playing together at Bridgeton City Park, after getting ice cream with their mother, Noema Alavez Perez, and a younger family member. They had only been at the park for ten minutes, when the little boy ran back to his mother, crying. It was then that Noema realized something was wrong, and went to look for her daughter. “We thought that she was just hiding, playing around and we went looking for her but we couldn’t find her,” she said in a recent interview with CBS Philadelphia

As soon as the girl’s disappearance went public, the online trolls came out.

Instagram / @hklawfirm

While Noema had notified police of the situation shortly before 5pm, she has faced intense scrutiny in the aftermath of her daughter’s disappearance. Revelations that she was 14 when Dulce was born, that the girl’s father lives in Mexico, that she once smoked marijuana and that she ate a slice of pizza after accepting her daughter’s disappearance all invoked the wrath of both online and offline critics. Because heaven forbid a mother take a break and grab a bite to eat while the police search for her daughter.

If you think matters couldn’t get any worse – this is where the teacher comes in.

Instagram / @ad12590

It was in the midst of this whirlwind of criticism against Noema that one teacher decided to join the fray on Facebook. Jennifer Hewitt Bishop, an elementary school teacher in South Jersey, responded to a post that questioned why Noema sat so far away when her children were playing in the park with, “They’re Mexican, it’s their culture. They don’t supervise their children like we do.”

The school board of where the teacher works, has taken her off of her post.

Instagram / @bring_kids_home

Once officials from Vineland Public Schools became aware of Bishop’s post, they launched an investigation into the matter, and Bishop was promptly taken out of the classroom. It’s not clear whether her absence is simply forced leave, or a suspension. However, it seemed that the school board overseeing Bishop’s position would decide on the matter this coming Wednesday. The president of the Vineland Education Association, Lou Russo, seemed reluctant to publicly condemn Bishop’s remarks, saying that comments online are “often misunderstood and taken out of context by a virtual crowd that rarely takes time to think and reflect or seek clarification before they react with verbal attacks of their own.”

Rest assured, the Twitter community also took the teacher to task.

Twitter / @dogz005

Some were quick to identify that ignorance isn’t really an excuse when it comes to racist remarks – and that Bishop should be fired. And, in fairness, racism is something that is not innate, but learned. It unequivocally doesn’t have a place in the classroom – ergo, there’s no need for racist educators, please and thank you.

Many pointed out that they shared similar parenting styles – allowing children to develop.

Twitter / @trillian215

Others were inspired to defend Noema’s parenting, in light of Bishop’s unfair commentary. In the same way that we shouldn’t blame victims of sexual assault for being assaulted, it’s not a mother’s fault if her child is kidnapped. At the end of the day, the fault still lies with the person who commits the crime – not someone who was unable to prevent the crime.

While others pointed out the teacher’s bigotry and noted it needed to be punished.

Twitter / @CopperSiren

This user smartly pointed out that people who are in positions of authority should not be perpetuating discrimination – and that it’s important to challenge bigotry when it does appear from people who wield power.

The thing is, the real focus should be placed on finding Dulce Maria Alavez – not ridiculous online commentary from a member of the community who should know better. The only positive that can be taken from this situation is that, hopefully, the teacher’s comments and ensuing media coverage can continue to keep Alavez’s profile in the spotlight while she’s missing. On that note, reports say that a light-skinned man with facial acne was seen leading Dulce away from the playground on that fateful afternoon, to a red van with tinted windows. Anyone who has information about the incident is to get in touch with either the Bridgeton police on 856-451-0033, or the State Police Missing Persons Unit at 609-882-2000, ext. 2554.

From Taurus To Cancer, These Are The Most Compatible Signs With Virgo

From Taurus To Cancer, These Are The Most Compatible Signs With Virgo

Who are we kidding: one of the major reasons all of us check our horoscope is to find out what the future has in store for us when it comes to love and lust. After all, you know that if you’re really meant to be together, then it’ll be written in the stars. 

So Virgo, in honor of your birthday, we’ve put together a quick guide to point you in the direction of your soulmate.

Virgo with an Aries (March 21 – April 19) creates an explosively fiery passion.

Instagram / @pavingsunrays

Part of what attracts you to Aries is the fact that they do everything with so much passion. You can’t help but be attracted to the fire in their soul. But Virgo, you can only function on their level for so long until you burn out. For you, a relationship with Aries takes work.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) is a matchmaker’s pick!

Instagram / @the.bridal.visions

Taurus are known for being super grounded and down to earth, and that’s exactly the kind of person you need in your life, Virgo. Your drive for perfectionism means that your Taurus can put things into perspective for you – they’re the yin to your yang, so to speak.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Gemini (May 21 – June 20) sees opposites attract.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

If one of your brutally honest friends had to describe you, Virgo, they’d say you’re a bit of a square. And, they wouldn’t exactly be wrong. That’s why Gemini can get on your nerves a bit … they’ve always got their heads up in the clouds when you’re trying to be realistic!

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Cancer (June 21 – July 22) means both love and lust.

Instagram / @mannyg520

While on the surface it would seem like Cancer is a bit too emotional for you, Virgo, it turns out that they’re exactly the sort of person you need in your life – and they need you, too. Your pragmatism in the face of their emotional swings is what keeps them sane. And they remind you to stay in touch with your softer side. So you know what this means? You guys have fabulous, fulfilling sex. Noice.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Leo (July 23 – August 22) is one hell of a rollercoaster!

Instagram / @happy_healthy_fitcouple

Leo can definitely test your patience, Virgo. You’re a quiet achiever, whereas Leo likes to get all of the attention, wherever they can get it. Leo’s got a massive ego that needs stroking … and you’re more critical. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much the perfect environment for lots of silly bickering. Then again, every couple has those moments, right?

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Virgo (August 23 – September 22) asks the question: can you ever have too much of a good thing?

Instagram / @miles.and.smiles

You’d think that being with someone who functions on the same vibe as you would be a match made in heaven. But, that’s only true to a certain extent. Given that the two of you are perfectionists and workaholics, you’d make a great power couple … that has almost zero romantic and sexual chemistry. If you want it to work, you’ve gotta work at it, Virgo.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Libra (September 23 – October 22) meshes realism with idealism.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

When people think Libra, they think social butterfly. When people think Virgo, they think shy. Virgo, you’re a realist, whereas Libras are an idealist. They say that opposites attract, but in your case, you’d probably find that the differences between you and Libra would eventually drag you away from each other. The both of you would really have to put in an effort to find your way back.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) sees things heat up in the bedroom.

Instagram / @smperez

While Scorpio and Virgo can build a really secure and safe relationship, you kids can come unstuck when it comes to your attitudes towards the bedroom. Scorpio tends to be all about the real carnal side of the beast with two backs, whereas Virgo is more about connecting emotionally through sex.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) mixes fun and stability.

Instagram / @littledolewhips

It’s nice when you meet someone who’s as adaptable as you are. But in the case of Sagittarius, Virgo, you might find that they’re a little too spontaneous for your liking. That being said, they might get you to loosen up a little, which is never a bad thing in your case!

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) is a match made in heaven!

Instagram / @bonitachinitalatina

Capricorn’s brand of perfectionism fits pretty well with your brand of perfectionism, Virgo. The difference is that you strive for better because you want to do good, whereas Capricorn wants to be good – at everything they do. And that makes you good together!

Compatibility: High

Virgo with an Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) is a hella smart match.

Instagram / @brazilcupid

Because both you and Aquarius are intellectual sorts, you’d find that you’d have what Alanis Morissette called, “intellectual intercourse.” But since the pair of you have such different approaches to life, you’d probably find it a lot easier to work on a friendship together, rather than a real steamy, romantic relationship.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Pisces (February 19 – March 20) means sweetness in spades.

Instagram / @yamelyhr

There’s no denying it, there’s definitely an attraction between you two. You’re both devoted, thoughtful and detail-oriented souls – but where Pisces is a dreamer, you’re much more realistic. If you’re both able to navigate your differences, then there’s no stopping you! Chances are, though, you’d find that your relationship will always be an ongoing project.
