Try making it to the end without salivating ???.

Be honest, the only reason you eat fruit is when it’s drenched in lime.

No doubt, the best part — after finishing the actual fruit — is drinking the lime juice.

Racist Oregonian Plumber Can’t Tell the Difference Between Latinos and Arabs

Some people will never learn that if you’re doing something stupid and someone is recording it, it’s gonna end up on the Internet. Just ask this guy, who was caught on video spewing an anti-Latino racial rant while driving in Oregon.

A Facebook video featuring a man screaming anti-Latino slurs at another driver has gone viral. *Warning: Offensive language.*

The incident happened in Beaverton, Oregon during the first week of 2016.

But the woman he was yelling at is NOT Latina…she is Arab.

Susan Khalaf, the woman who recorded the video, was born in California and is of Jordanian descent. “Before I was able to catch the first part of what he was saying on camera, I couldn’t believe he was saying it, telling me, ‘You immigrant, go back to your country,'” Khalaf told KATU2.

Soon after the release of the video, the man was identified as Joseph Metoxen by social media users. He was promptly fired from his job at Wolcott Plumbing.

A note from our President:

“First of all, this is a very upsetting situation. Under no circumstances do I personally,…

Posted by Wolcott Plumbing on Wednesday, January 6, 2016

“Upon further investigation today, I learned and confirmed it was one of my employees in the video. This employee was immediately terminated,” Wolcott Plumbing President posted to the company Facebook.

But that’s not all. Metoxen said he feared for his safety after the video went viral, so he called the cops to protect him.

Unfortunately for Metoxen, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office found an outstanding warrant (not related to road rage) and they quickly arrested him at his home.
