This little Mexican genius just adorably destroyed the anti-vaxxer argument.
Marco Arturo has set the Internet on FIRE. This 12-year-old Mexican genius went full savage on people who legit think that vaccines lead to autism. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has already stressed that vaccines don’t cause autism, but that’s not enough for the anti-vaccine truthers. So young Marco stepped in to further drive this point home.
You might say, “But it’s my child so I should have the right to choose what happens to my child.” Marco agrees with you on that 100 percent.
“OK. I agree,” he says. “It’s your choice if you are going to expose your child to deadly diseases, but, you know, it’s not just your child. It’s basically everyone else’s child. It’s also everyone else’s child you are putting in danger because you read some forwarded email.” [insert dripping sarcasm]
No matter how sensibly you eat most of the time, all rules and best intentions go out the door when it comes to drunk food. That’s the whole point of drunk food, right? It’s got to be salty, greasy, heavy and delicious enough to absorb all that, uh, liquid courage you imbibed while psyching yourself up to talk to your crush at the party. So here’s the best drunk food Latinos have perfected, RANKED. Because if there’s one thing we at Mitú love more than snacks, it’s drama.
15. A plate of spaghetti con salchichas y ketchú because, after all, you’re DRUNK.
Why they’re awesome: I mean. Fries. Need we say more?
And yet… Fries are also just fine plain. Plus, if the “salchi” part of your salchipapa equation isn’t made just right, you’re left with a mound of soggy tube meat on soggy potatoes, and we think you deserve better than that.
Why they’re awesome: An L.A. institution (which you can also find in other cities, sure) often found outside of nightclubs and music venues, danger dogs are hot dogs wrapped in bacon and topped with all sorts of goodness. They’re salty, greasy, smoky and the perfect food when you’re completely wasted.
Why they’re awesome: Easily portable morsels of breaded and fried goodness? WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE???
And yet… Look, chances are, if you’re eating these drunk, you’re gettin’ ’em at the end of the day. Do you know what happens to a croqueta that isn’t fresh? The dreaded “breading separation,” wherein the breaded portion slowly draws away from the center, making for a stale-tasting, less than ideal gastronomic experience.
Why they’re awesome: Because they’re tacos. Duh. Portable meat and veggies in a warm tortilla, delivered straight to your face. Buy them from from a truck at 3 in the morning, and they’re the perfect drunk food.
And yet… Spillage can be an issue, particularly if your motor skills are impaired after a night of revelry.
