El Tzompantli

¡Feliz día de los muertos!



El Tzompantli
Antes, trofeo y advertencia.
Hoy de azúcar, nuestra querencia.

A former trophy and warning,
Now made of sugar,
A treat most heart-warming

Los Topos

Los ToposWith Gratitude…

Los Topos

Todo México agradece
su generosidad y valentía.
Cuando la tierra se estremece
por nosotros arriesgan la vida.

The “Moles”
Rescue Team
When the earth has trembled
and everything’s destroyed and dark,
they risk their lives to rescue us,
heroic people with a big, brave heart.

El Cerdo

Here is a digital alteration to the original card of El Cerdo. We thought this needed an update in light of recent events…


The enemy of half the population
is now the leader of the entire nation.
Rest in peace, American dream.
See you again at the end of this regime.

Llegó al poder el mentiroso racista y opresor,
con ayuda de un rusito de lo peor.
Ahora nos toca resistir y dar la lucha,
porque la cuesta es empinada y la urgencia, mucha.

El CERDO (The Pig)

Puro pelo y poco seso ostenta el gringo portentado.
A este chancho racista lo hará chicharrón el voto hispano.

Lots of hair and little brain does one gringo millionaire flaunt.
This racist hog will be crushed by the weight of the Latino vote!
