This Lady Went To Support Her Soccer Team And Ended Up A Meme

Fans of Guanajuato, Mexico-based soccer team León are licking their wounds this week after their team was eliminated from the 2016 Liga MX Clausura playoffs. Many of them probably wish it was still 2014, when León defeated Pachuca to win back-to-back titles. Not only did León lift a championship trophy that year, their fans were treated to a hilarious meme that nearly overshadowed their victory.

During a TV broadcast of a León match, a woman wearing lion makeup (León = Lion) was show on screen for a few seconds.

All she was doing was supporting her team by wearing some kickass make up. But that thousand-yard stare was too good for the Internet to resist.

And that’s all it took for the Internet to meme the woman, who was dubbed “Leonor” and “La Señora León.”

Here she is as the mascot for León. Soon, the hashtag #ChambasParaLaSeñoraLeón was trending in Mexico, and people began creating memes featuring La Señora as the perfect candidate for several “new jobs.”

Someone suggested that she star in a reboot of this Disney classic:

Not convinced? Here’s what it could look like:

If “The Lion King” isn’t your thing, how about a different movie from Disney?

Maybe she could bring a little courage to “The Wizard of Oz”…

Or some toughness to “Thundercats.”

She could make Laura León eat her heart out…

Or unleash a loud roar as the MGM Lion.

Maybe she could move to the U.S. and rep for the Detroit Lions…

Or become the face of a beer brand.

She would probably make a good sidekick…

Or make everyone forget about “Hamilton” by joining the “Cats” revival.

At the very least, Leonora could inspire León to give their cheerleaders a new look.

Shout out to Señora León. Without fans like her, fútbol would be a lot less entertaining.

Spanish Voiceover Actress For Jessie From Pokémon Dies And Fans Mourn

Pokémon fans in Latin America are mourning the death of Diana Pérez, the Spanish-language voice of Jessie of Pokémon’s Team Rocket. The voice actress has been voicing the character since 1997.

Diana Pérez, the voice actress of Team Rocket’s Jessie, died at 51.

Lalo Garza, a famed voice actor in Mexico, confirmed the death of the Pokémon voice actress.

“Rest in peace Diana Pérez, a strong, cultured, intelligent, and very talented woman. You are good now, friend. Nothing hurts anymore. Have a good trip,” reads the tweet.

Pérez has been a staple in the Spanish-language Pokémon fandom for decades.

Pérez was more than just he voice of Jessie. The voice actress was the voice of multiple anime characters including Luffy in One Piece and Kagura in Inuyasha. In recent years, Pérez had started branching out to directing, producing, and other branches in the entertainment industry.

Pérez’s death is being mourned by Pokémon fans outside of the Spanish-language fandom.

Sarah Natochenny is the English voice of Ash Ketchum in the Pokémon series, Jessie’s mortal enemy. The death of Pérez has impacted the larger Pokémon community. Pérez was a pivotal part of the Latin American Pokémon community for decades and her loss has devastated fans.

Descansa en paz, Diana.

There have been no plans announced for a replacement to voice Team Rocket’s Jessie. No official cause of death has been released either. Our hearts and thoughts go out to Pérez’s family and the greater Pokémon community mourning her passing.

This Mexican College Student Is Going Viral For Breeding the Largest Bunnies In the World

This Mexican College Student Is Going Viral For Breeding the Largest Bunnies In the World

Look out Bad Bunny. There’s another breed of bunny in town that’s taking the internet by storm. A college student in Mexico recently went viral for the oddest thing. He has genetically engineered a strain of rabbits to be the largest in the world.

21-year-old Kiro Yakin has become a viral sensation after internet users have seen him with pictures of the giant bunnies he genetically engineered.

Yakin, a student at the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla on the Xicotepec campus, is studying veterinary and animal husbandry. He began his experimentation by breeding two unique rabbit types together. The Flemish Giant rabbit and other, longer-eared bunnies that Yakin happened to notice. As a result, his monster-bunny was born.

According to Yakin, his experimental bunnies grow up to 22 pounds  Flemish Giant, while the average Flemish giant weighs 15 pounds. But make no mistake, Yakin’s bunny experiment was no accident. “It takes an average of 3 to 4 years to reproduce this giant species,” he told Sintesis.

Yakin’s ultimate goal is to breed a rabbit that can grow up to 30 pounds. “I am currently studying genetics to see how to grow this breed of giant rabbits more,” he said.

Yakin, who has had a soft spot for rabbits since he was a child (pun intended), now cares for a whopping fifty giant rabbits out of his parents’ home.

Luckily, his parents are supportive enough of his dream that they support their son (and his bunnies) financially. “I have the financial support and support of my parents to buy food a week for all 50 giant rabbits,” Yakin told Sintesis.

But he also admitted his project has a long way to go. “So far I have not set aside the time or budget that is required to start the project more seriously,” he said.

The only thing that’s preventing Yakin from committing all his time and energy to creating even bigger bunnies is–what else?–money.

Although he already submitted a proposal to his university to try and expand his research, as of now, he is self-financed. However, Yakin makes a bit of extra cash by selling the giant bunnies to private customers.

His ultimate goal though, is to open up a large, professional farm where he can breed and cross-breed his bunnies to his heart’s content.
