“Last night my husband finally found a way to satisfy me.” Doña Felisberta’s friends stopped their ears, as they say, when they heard her make that statement. She explained: “He went to sleep in another room”… The crocodile predicted to his little son: “Sometime you will have a lot of money.” The little crocodile asked: “When, ‘papa?” The saurian responded: “When you are a wallet”… Don Ultimio was living his final hours. With him were his wife and the doctor who treated him, the family doctor for years. The dying man opened his eyes and spoke in a weak voice: “The only thing I feel is leaving my beloved wife, a beautiful, friendly, pleasant, hard-working and, above all, faithful woman.” He declared the doctor: “The end is near. He’s starting to get delirious… The first thing to note is that López Obrador no longer travels on commercial airliners. And the passengers yelled things at him, the way people barked at José López Portillo when he entered a restaurant. I happened to be in one where the former president arrived, but, respectful as I am, I didn’t bark. I love dogs, and I didn’t want to disrespect them. Likewise It is worth mentioning the fact that the plane that took AMLO to Chile avoided crossing the airspace of Peru for fear, according to the Tabasco native, of some nonsense. The truth is that he was the one who behaved rudely towards that brother country. I have felt this distance a lot, because I have a very special appreciation for Peru since I read the “Peruvian Traditions”, by Don Ricardo Palma, and “The Glory of Don Ramiro”, by the Argentine Enrique Larreta. Don Ramiro’s glory consisted of having met Saint Rose of Lima. I received affection from my readers in Peru when I went there to present my books. For all that, and for the Pisco SourI thank you most sincerely. I trust that at the end of this six-year period of reckless outbursts, relations between our countries will once again be harmonious and cordial. Finally, I will say that López Obrador is the President with the greatest cultural limitations of modern Mexico, and also of the not so modern one. Thus, his few presidential visits are almost always to Spanish-speaking countries, since he does not speak English, not even patriotically poorly, as César Garizurieta, the famous Tlacuache, said with Veracruz wit. Of course, it is not anyone’s obligation to speak a foreign language, but a certain dose of internationalism is expected from the President of a country. so that he does not appear as the mayor of a globe town, if I may use that colloquial expression. For the good of Mexico, I hope that there will be no nonsense on AMLO’s trip, neither his own nor those of others… Miss Peripalda asked the children in catechism: “Who was Moses’ mother?” Pepito raised his hand and answered without hesitation: “Moses’ mother was the daughter of Pharaoh.” “No, Pepito,” the pious catechist corrected him. Pharaoh’s daughter found it in a little basket floating in the waters of the Nile River. She added Pepito: “That was what she told her parents”… We know Capronio. He is a mean and inconsiderate guy. He was on a beach with his wife and his mother-in-law. He asked his wife: “Tell your mother to go into the sea before us, so she can scare away the sharks”… Tonito, the son of Don Poseidon, was going to get married. On the eve of the marriage he consulted his father: “How will I know on the wedding night if my bride is innocent?” The rustic gentleman advised him: “Paint your testes, didymos or companions green. If, upon seeing you, the girl asks you: ‘Why do you have green ones?’, that will mean that she is not so innocent”… THE END.
