You Know You're Puerto Rican If ...

You've ever used your lips to point something out.

You've ever been hit with "chancletas", "la correa", or the cord
of "la plancha".

You get really scared whenever someone mentions "El Cuuuuuco!!!"

You've gone to Titi's house and passed through the "bead
curtain" in the living room.

You step into a house that has all those little figurines taking
up every inch of space on the TV and under the TV.

Your mother has a porcelain cat, dog, Buddha or elephant in her
living room.

Almost everyone you know is nicknamed "mira".

You've eaten "esporsoda" with butter.

You have a perpetually drunk neighbor.

You know your mom is sneaking up on you because you can hear the
'clack-clack' of her "chancletas".

Someone in you family is name "Maria".

You have actually met several people named "Jesus".

You treat fevers with "alcoholado".

You know "Don Francisco" from "Sabado Gigante".

You need a cup of coffee after every meal.

One of your aunts weighs over 300 pounds.

You have a delinquent cousin.

Your uncle owns more gold than the jewelry shop down the street.

You've sat in a two-passenger car with over seven people in it,
and there's a person shouting "Subete que caben mas!".

You put a big Puerto Rican flag on your car come June.

You've sung "Japi Beldei Two Yuuuu" more than you care to
remember.

You know at least four of your last names.

You scrunch up your nose to ask a silent "que ?".

You've ever left grass out for the camels on the night of Jan.
6th., instead of leaving milk and cookies for Santa Claus on
Christmas.

You remember Ricky Martin as the little one from Menudo.

You were raised on Goya products (Si es Goya, tiene que ser
bueno).

You consider the bad luck day to be "Tuesday" (not Friday the
13th).

You ever wished El Chapulin Colorado would come and save you.

You've dropped food on the floor, picked it up, and eaten it
after saying "lo que no mata engorda".

Your sofa or rug is covered in plastic.

You start clapping when your plane hits the runway.

Your cousins have "original" names, like a blend of their
parent's names (ViMari = Victor + Maria)

Your mother, tia, or hermana's hair is black cherry, "sun in"
red, or a burgundy that would make Celia Cruz jealous.

You go to a wedding or Quinceanera party, gossip about how bad
the food is, but take a plate to go.

You can dance to merengue, cumbia, or salsa without music.

You think Christina can beat Oprah any day.

You can get to your house blindfolded because the smell of
chuletas is SO strong.

Your mother yells at the top of her lungs to call you to dinner
when you live in a one bedroom apartment.

Telenovenas have the status of holy ceremonies.

You think platanos are a whole separate food group.

You have a picture of "Cristo" in your house.

You think your name begins like this: "Ave Maria Purisima,

You walk around saying "Chacho", or "Chacha" or "Ay Bendito".

Others tell you to stop screaming when you're really talking.

You know someone who drives a "Cheby".

You call all sneakers "tenis".

All breakfast cereals are called "Con Fley".

All tissue papers are called "Klinex".

All brands of diapers are called "Pampel".

A balanced meal consists of rice and beans and some kind of meat.

You know the difference between "Carolina Rice" and everything
else.

You appreciate the difference between "Agua de Florida" and
"Superior 70".

You have a great uncle that had more than three wives.

You've put a penny on your forehead to stop a nosebleed.

Your mother has put a balled up piece of thread on your baby
cousin's forehead to stop her hiccups.

The thought of eating fried pork intestines filled with blood
and rice reminds you of Christmas.

You have at least 30 cousins. At least!

You know how to drive an "estandar" or "estic chift" car.

You can tell the difference between "Cafe Crema" and "Bustelo".

And last, but not least:

Your grandmother thinks Vick's Vapor Rub is the miracle cure for
everything!

Give it up Upfront Yankee, you and TPMP have lost these battles and you both have also lost this final war....

Why continue to make asses out of your own selves? Why can't neither one of you accept that it is over that you both need to move on and allow us "WHO REALLY STILL CARE' to try and bring these forums back to some kind of normalcy without you 2 trying to ruin everything that Can help us all achieve that THAT peaceful goal?....

You are both continuing to fight a constant losing battle with me because hell will freeze over before I allow you 2 again to run things around here ever again when all you both have managed to do do is run off all of our highly educated and decent well meaning posters at large.

Over my dead body will neither one of you be allowed to run things into the wrong directions, or get your wicked ways around here any longer...You are both washed up and no one may be coming to my defence, as I do not need it, but neither are any decent posters coming over to defend you both either. That message is loud and clear that they are giving me room and ample time to clean house and I will continue to do just that, with you becoming humbled or not.

Does anyone have anything to add to the topic above, please feel free to do so...It will help us all bring some kind of normalcy back to these volatile forums and maybe then our old good positive posting friends will come back to post their intelligent, educational and well meaning things in our Puerto Rico Topix once again for the good of everyone, including myself.

I look forward, I really do, for that day to really happen, to become a reality once again and that both upfront Yankee and tpmp will humble themselves and join our well meaning posters at large, to do it the right way, or they can also leave, as many not so well meaning already have, by the quick way, meaning the highway.

Save face by just humbling yourself and knowing when enough is enough...It seems you don't want our good well meaning posters back, but I sure do. I'm just also tired of all this ongoing none stop negativity and in-fighting already...Give it up, TPMP, as no one wins, all of us lose, accept it already.

How can you tell if you are a Puertorican?



IF YOU GREW UP SCARED OF SOMETHING
CALLED " EL CUCO"
IF YOU KNOW THE MEANING OF
" NO DA PIE CON BOLA"
IF MOM CAN'T COOK BECAUSE THERE IS
NO " SOFRITO "
IF DINNER USUALLY CONSISTS OF RICE AND BEANS WITH SOME TYPE OF MEAT
IF YOU WERE RAISED ON "GOYA" PRODUCTS
IF YOU USE YOUR NOSE OR LIPS TO POINT SOMETHING OUT.
IF YOU'VE EVER DROPPED FOOD ON THE FLOOR, PICKED IT UP, AND ATE IT AFTER SAYING " LO QUE NO MATA ENGORDA"
IF YOU HAVE BEEN EVER HIT BY A "CHANCLETA"
IF YOU REFER TO CEREAL AS " CON FLEY"
IF OTHERS TELL YOU TO STOP SCREAMING WHEN YOU ARE REALLY TALKING
IF YOU CAN GET TO YOUR HOUSE BLINDFOLDED BECAUSE THE SMELL OF CHULETAS IS SO STRONG
IF YOUR SOFA IS COVERED IN PLASTIC
IF YOU CAN DANCE MERENGUE OR SALSA WITHOUT MUSIC
IF YOU'VE BEEN IN A COMPACT CAR WITH OVER 5 PEOPLE IN IT AND SOMEONE STILL SHOUTS " CABEN MAS"
IF YOU CALL YOUR SNEAKERS " TENIS"
IF YOU START CLAPPING WHEN YOUR PLANE LANDS ON THE RUNWAY
IF YOU CAN RELATE TO ALL THESE
YOU ARE DEFINITELY PUERTORICAN!

I haven't changed anything.......I will do whatever i please as a man, with my name at anytime i please. You are the one with 1,000 monikers with your silly polls. You are nobody to talk about name change.

The tenor to change here has to start with all of us. I have been stating that for a while now.

Including YOU as well.

Everytime we start to change the tenor, here....You come and destroy it, if you are not a part of it

Have you ever heard of accountabilitry?

I sure hope that this is not just another of your "moodswings" to attract people in ,and then, when everything is back to fairly normal.....You break out your fangs again.

If thst happens. The posters will run for cover once more.

We are then back ro square one in the forums. as usual.

The choice belongs to you Dave.

You want to set a tone as a so-called editor? That's what you want?

Then start acting like it and MAINTAIN it!
