These Female Rebels Are The Scariest In The Jungle

In Colombia, the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, or FARC, is considered a rebel group by the government. But, it’s an organization founded on Marxist beliefs and even practices gender equality. In fact, a lot of the fighters on the battlefield are women and they are something to be reckoned with.

“The women are the worst,” said an an undercover special forces officer, “If you get captured, you pray it’s by the male rebels.”

Some of the women fighting with FARC joined to escape poverty or violence at home. And although they’re far from home, they still like Katy Perry and wearing makeup and nail polish.

The difference now is that they fight alongside men armed with grenades, pistols, and automatic rifles. And according to the undercover officer, “They’re more ideological than the men. They’re merciless.”

Their presence in FARC has allowed the men to stay put in the battlefield longer without having to miss some of the comforts of home.

These women serve as an interesting example for those who doubt women in the U.S cannot be soldiers because of their supposed limited physical strength.

Larry Hernandez and Lupillo Rivera Play Narco-Lotería

Regional Mexican singers Larry Hernandez and Lupillo Rivera recently hung out together* to play a little game of lotería. But it wasn’t just any old game of lotería…

*The guy on the left preferred to keep his identity a mystery, so we’ll leave him alone.

It was a game of NARCO-LOTERÍA.

Hernandez posted a video of the friendly game to his YouTube, but it’s a whole 5 minutes long and you’ve probably got shit to do, so here’s what it looks like:

There’s no dama, borracho or valiente in this game.

Wait – did they buy this somewhere? Did one of them get crafty and decide to make these during their free time? So many questions.

Instead, it features notorious drug lords such as Pablo Escobar, Francisco Javier “El Tigrillo” Arellano Felix and Alfredo Beltran Leyva.

If you look closely, there a card for a grenade launcher, as well as former Mexican president Carlos Salinas de Gortari.

Of course, there are cards for La Barbie and El Chapo…

Even the DEA has its own card:

And it probably wouldn’t be narco-lotería without the queen:

If you’re wondering who won all those hundred dollar bills, it was Lupillo Rivera, who celebrated with a sip of tequila.
