The Daily Word in bacon shortages, salsa contests, zombees and castration.

The Daily Word

Here’s a man made 300 obscene phone calls.

Castration makes men live longer.

Hey, a car flipped over.

How to read body language, they claim.

The bacon shortage is coming.

Puppy cam. If anyone cares.

There’s a snake with heads on both ends. I am a snake head eating the head on the opposite side.

Make yourself a sad little song in Bb.

Dawn of the Zombees.

Ritz Crackers are #1.

Here's the latest bigfoot photo, such as it is.

A Monster House blocks out the sun.

Matt Erdman thinks the State Fair’s salsa contest was rigged.

Happy birthday Mark Hamill.

Eeeee! Who you callin’ turkey, chicharrón?

This week in Food, Ari LeVaux visits decades-old Chicharroneria Orozco’s new digs on Bridge and samples a golden-fried plate of turkey tails (aka colitas de pavo), one of the few non-pork meats in the place.

In other chicharrón news, that’s the name of the porcine sidekick carried around by Lynette ("Shit Burqueños Say") in a new series of New Mexico State Fair commercials. Felicidades to Blackout Theatre and Expo New Mexico for a local marketing campaign that’s actually, and awesomely, local.

Fancy fish tacos y todo

In honor of ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano’s visit to Albuquerque next Wednesday, our restaurant critic paid a visit to an upscale taco and tequila bar named after the Arellano family's home state: Zacatecas. Fish tacos, ahoy!

¡Que Vivan los Tacos!


To properly honor Gustavo Arellano’s visit to Albuquerque and his new book, Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, there was really only one option: an upscale tequila bar that serves gringo tacos, chips and salsa, and leafy salads.

I mean, what better way to pay tribute to Señor ¡Ask a Mexican! himself than getting buzzed on organic mescal in a place named after the Arellano family's home state, Zacatecas?
