Rule 5 Friday: south of the border edition

December 7, 2012

Sometimes it’s nice to end the work week by contemplating and appreciating beauty. Especially when we’ve already considered the tragedy of Pearl Harbor, the crushing of a small business by Leviathan, and how we’re all better off on welfare.

So, without further ado and to end the day on a happy note, Public Secrets is happy to  present the most famous weather presenter in all Mexico, Mayte Carranco:

You know, if they want to get me watching local news again…

Hmm… I may have to start a feature on Mexican weather girls.

As you can see, they had been hit pretty hard. Thankfully, Grandpa survived.

Eleven years ago, we were hit by another fascist enemy, Muslims waging “jihad fi sabil Allah,” with casualties 25% higher than Pearl Harbor:

Our grandfathers finished their job. Let’s not do any less, shall we?
