I went to Pedro’s Tex Mex Cantina to claim my racist sobrero

Pedro’s Tex-Mex Cantina is a fantastical shack near a ring road in Norwich. It was recently asked to stop handing out sombreros at the University of East Anglia Freshers’ Fair, because anti-racist activists (henceforth known as ‘morons’) at the UEA Freshers’ Fair reckon the sombrero is racist, and gave the staff of Pedro’s Tex-Mex Cantina a lecture about ‘cultural appropriation’, which they took well; that is, they did not set fire to the UEA Freshers’ Fair, which is what I would have done.

    Sombreros are a great way to serve corn chips.
    We used to do that on our Mexican themed buffet which we added to our menu during the PanAm Games a few years ago.

    • Nobody in Mexico wears sombreros except professional entertainers, and tourists so they can fit in and nobody can identify them.

      But I heard they’re great for serving corn chips.

        • Yep, that’s me. Real name Ricardo Jaime Perra — I started using “Rick James Bitch” after we moved here from the Dominican Republic. It’s a transliteration into English.

            My favourite Dominican is Big Papi.

          • Who’s that? Listened to Juan Luis Guerra — great merengue. Unfortunately the only Dominican I’ve heard of.

            Big Papi is David Ortiz of the Red Sox, who has more than 500 career home runs.

    I have a sombrero that I store on top of my cardboard Obama figure.

      Cardboard Obama!

      How do you sleep at night?

        Hey, you can have a lot of fun with cardboard figures of famous people. Cardboard Joe Montana got a lot of action in a bar I used to frequent in San Francisco.

      Put corn chips in it – with maybe a little bowl of salsa, too.

    Hey third world — why are you coming to the the ‘racist’ West in droves…because you want what we built? Do not bring your third world here. People make a country.

      And some people INVADE other peoples’ countries. That’s why there’s a tradition called “fighting back” and “war”. People will start connecting those dots. Counting 10, nine, eight, seven….
