    Laugh's,but true.............

    CHISTOSO, PERO ES LA MERA NETA

    1. Not only do you know all the security guards and
    cafeteria workers, ONE OF THEM HAS ASKED YOU OUT ON A
    DATE OR VICE VERSA.

    2. Your version of a conference call is when you call
    your friends and plan what you are doing for tonight
    or for the weekend.

    3. The only time your man/woman picks you up from work
    is on payday.

    4. Friends and family members call you at work to cuss
    you out because you didn't answer your home phone the
    previous night.

    5.You paint your nails at your desk.

    6. When you are on a personal call you laugh so
    loud-your coworkers on the other side of the office
    come and ask you what's so funny.

    7. On casual Friday you wear your best- Versace,
    Tommy, Polo, D&G, Burberry jeans (ladies - tightest)
    Parasuco jeans)... but the rest of the week you looked
    professional.

    8. You have pictures on your wall and around your
    computer with you and your friends at the club with
    drinks in your hands, as well as pics of all of your
    "sobrinos".

    9. You talk about how much money you make.

    10. You have codes for personal calls that let's
    someone know that you'll call them right back. (Let
    the phone ring two times and I will know it is you and
    call you right back.)

    11. You go get your haircut / hair done on lunch and
    come back two hours later..

    12. You use your corporate credit card to buy clothes,
    pay bills, personal plane tickets.

    13. Your nails are so long you can hardly type.

    14. You don't like your supervisor and a couple
    other coworkers and you tell them off on a regular
    basis and wonder why you haven't been promoted.

    15. You brag about how you haven't done anything all
    day and you have the nerve to say when you get home,
    "I am so tired."

    16. You call in sick on Friday because you went out on
    Thursday you call in on Monday too

    17. You go shopping at lunch and come back with a
    lot of bags and proceed to show everyone what you
    bought.

    18. You bring your kids to work and they run all
    over the office.

    19. You come to work on Friday's dressed for the club.

    20. You cuss creditors out for calling you at work.

    21. Your kids call your job and say to the operator,
    "Let me speak to Mami."

    22. You call in sick on payday Friday and send your
    cousin to pick up your paycheck.

    23.You contribute $1 to the office Christmas party,eat
    the most food and take a platter of lunchmeat and
    potato salad home to your family for dinner.

    24. Your kids` school supplies all have your company's
    insignia on them. (You know who you are)

    25. You give your out-of-town friends your company`s
    1-800 number.

    26. Before calling in sick, you rehearse your sick
    voice and sick story several times out loud. (You know
    who you are)

    27. Coworkers inquire how your father`s surgery
    went-that required you to be out for days and you
    haven`t seen your daddy since he left your momma when
    you were born ..... [img]graemlins/lol.gif[/img] [img]icon_rofl.gif[/img]

    -how are these statements/corny jokes supposed to be directed for only Latinos?

    I can't get mad at DeeJay Raare simply because these are jokes. I get more pissed off at the lame shows that we have. I mean, has anyone seen the crap that is on the Latino stations lately? Many of our jokes are chauvenist, sexist, and demeaning to women. Most of our commercials rely on T&A to sell products, even to children (remember the joke they made on the Simpsons about the lady who did the kids show who was scantily clad-it was in the Brazilian episode). Shows such es 'Sabado Gigante' and 'Hasta En Las Mejores Familias' rely on exploitation, not only of our women, but of our cultures and values to push their ratings. We can try and blame someone else for it, but we should look at ourselves first before we start talking smack. Just my two pennies .....

    DeejAy: Hermano, no problem I'm not 100% mad, just kinda perplexed that these are so called "Latino Attributes".
    I mean if it was something like:
    "You know your latino when you go to the hardware store and ask for a lightbulb and the store owner asks how many Watts you need and u reply:
    "Damelo con mucho wat, po que lo wa prender y lo wa pagar chico"
    NOW THATS COMEDY! [img]graemlins/lol.gif[/img]

    but what I'm REALLY upset is how no one else on this board brought up some DRAMA?!
    WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DRAMA?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?
    is it cause its a LATIN THING?!?!?!?
    HUH?!
    I'ma start a protest in front of the DHP offices and DEMAND FOR MORE THREADS THAT ARE LATIN BASED AND FULL OF DRAMA!! [img]mad1.gif[/img]

    El, are you upset that this board which encourages topics on Black issues, music, art and culture addresses these issues more than Latin issues? If you got issues\topics then you take the lead and bring them up. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Ummmm, lest you ever forget: http://deephousepage.com/cgi-bin/ult...c;f=1;t=030923. Does that make you feel better? DHP knows how to bring the drama, no matter the topic, the ethnicity, gender or what-have-you... :D

    Magic Juan, you hit the nail on the head! i've been thinking of this for a minute...what you mention with the t&a marketing of those shows would not make it on mainstream American tv...and a lot of those shows (especially the univison ones) are crap. i mean, that "sabado gigante" has been on the air nationally since 1987 and that sh** is tired, tired, tired! ese viejo verde Don Fransisco needs to give up his schtick and retire before his viagra gets the best of him...and what about that "primer impacto"? it's pathetic! if there's bloodletting, they'll report it ..the gorier the better...they constantly report about tradegies, shootings, and the like and pass it off as "news" when it's nothing more than 21st-century yellow journalism with a heavy dose of sensationalism...one day, i was with my mom and the show aired....they had this report about this guy in California who stabbed his brother with a knife and the folks who run that show stooped so low as to show the stabbed brother entering the ambulance with the knife still attached to his back. [img]graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] [img]mad1.gif[/img] complete bollocks!

    and if you switch over to telemundo (which i think nbc runs and runs a distant second to bigwig univision), they got this show out of Peru called "Laura En America"...it airs weekdays at 4pm....it's extremely pathetic...a jerry springer copycat where Laura acts as though she is some sort of good samaritian and constantly has adversaries duking out the drama...and to hear the constant "bleeps" to cover the cuss words (sometimes you hear about 6-8 "bleeps" per minute)is just horrid...not only that, but has anyone heard the theme music to that show???? if you thought lambada music was dead, just listen to the theme and you'd think it was on the verge of a comeback!

    univision recently established a second network called "telefutura" as a result of relaxed media laws and has their fingers in many areas, especially with a record label which they often push their stuff...what's sad is that univion has a visegrip on mainstream Latin culture in the States...Univision is sadly one of the few Spanish-language media choices out there with telemundo going a distant second and Tv Azteca starting to establish affliates in the States (mostly out West)...

    speaking of Univision...here's some recommended name changes to their shows:

    Hasta En Las Mejores Familias -- Hasta En Las Mejores Peleas
    Sabado Gigante -- Sabado Insignificante
    Cristina -- Cretina
    Primer Impacto -- Primer Implantes
    Despierte America -- Sigue Durmiendo
    Clase 406 -- Clase 666
    Mujer...Casos De La Vida Real -- Sangano...Son Casos Que No Son Leal
    El Gordo Y La Flaca -- El Peo Y La Caca
    Fuera De Serie -- Fuera Del Aire
    El Blablazo -- El Cagazo (can't believe this crap is still on the air!)
    Otro Rollo -- Otro Bollo
    Lente Loco -- Lente Mosco
    Tu Desayuno Alegre -- Tu Desayuno Triste
    Cero En Conducta -- Cero En Comedia

    commercials

    ingles sin barreras -- ingles a la carerra
    fonovisa -- pornovisa


    changing the subject just a little bit, does anyone remember back in NY/NJ wnju channel 47 during their pre-telemundo era (before 1987)? their commercials were a ball to watch as well as a lot of the comedic and variety fare they used to import from Puerto Rico such as:

    Los Kakukomikos
    Estudio Alegre
    La Casa De Juanma Y Wiwi
    Noche De Gala (Eddie Miro)
    El Show De Iris Chacon
    El Show De Las Doce (con "La Condesa Del Bochinche")

    let's keep this going...

    Raare, how has all been brother? :D [img]graemlins/respekt.gif[/img]
    with well tidings and kind regards,<br /><br />kelvy
