  1. “And tomorrow the world?” The joke is, I guess, that he’s scratched the thin veneer of the harmless [your ethnic stereotype here] and found the undercurrent of revolutionary socialism? Of course, I assume he’s just mocking the paranoid fantasy.

  2. “This is the Precious One – who will take all your land!!”

    Well, they’re bent on world domination I guess.

    Or it’s some kinda LOTR reference….

  3. I think it’s mocking the fear that immigrants from Latin America are coming to America in huge numbers and “taking over America.”

  4. I made some comment to a guy named
    Diego Rodriguez one time to the
    effect that anglos had taken Texas
    away from Mexico and he said,
    “That’s okay; we’re getting it back. We’ve already got San
    Antonio: you been there lately?”

  5. He clarifies on the strip of the 11th. (yep, I’m an insomniac)

    I was confused by the one the day before this . . . I think I at first interpreted it as the radio station being mad that the white kid was appropriating their culture . . . so the non-Latino kids listening was the “invasion” (as with rap music, something like 70% of which is purchased by white young men) . . .

    but I must be wrong about that, in the context of the next few days . . .

  6. An all-Spanish radio station in Atlanta apparently included a talk show where callers were introducing themselves and giving their town name – as part of Mexico.

    “I’m from Atlanta, Mexico.”
    “Juan, from Kennesaw, Mexico.”
    “Carlos in Macon, Mexico.”
    (Yes, all cities in Georgia.)

    It was funny – until the Hispanics went on strike. Three times last year. While they didn’t cause any serious shutdowns (“no pine straw deliveries! oh no!”), they did score major political points.
