She’s Got a Moch

Shit Burqueñas say

By Marisa Demarco
The first time I saw actor Lauren Poole become Lynette at a screening of the local film Imagi-Nation, I bristled. But Lynette’s legit. She’s a whole person with varied interests. You’re probably familiar with her “Shit Burqueños (New Mexicans) Say” videos, put up on YouTube by Blackout Theatre Company. See what she had to say in her interview with the Alibi.

Blackout Theatre Company’s All Sick Burque Speaktionary

Kind of like Merriam-Webster’s with Moch. Example: baeg: noun - a carrying device often used at grocery stores or in a leather variety by women. Example: “You ain’t supposed to use plastic baegs no more. They’re bad for the environment.”

Shit Burqueños Say: The Return!

Using suggestions from people who loved the first video, Blackout Theatre company made a sequel. The original has nearly 300,000 hits on YouTube.

Since I’m from New Mexico all my life, some of these jokes don’t make sense to me. While watching part two, I was thinking to myself, “Mountain? Button? Why’s that in there?” My sister had a similar reaction. She did not understand what was funny about the “Coke” thing in the first one, because that’s what she calls soda pop. Someone had to explain it to her.

It’s great someone’s documenting this stuff. Albuquerque is a special place.
