Mexico's Got Some Nerve...

Mexico Slams Burger King For 'Whopper' Of An Insult
Mexico is protesting what it says is a whopper of an insult.

An advertisement for Burger King's chili-flavored "Texican" burger that has run in Europe shows a small wrestler dressed in a cape resembling a Mexican flag. The wrestler teams up with a lanky American cowboy twice his height to illustrate the cross-border blend of flavors.

"The taste of Texas with a little spicy Mexican," a narrator's voice says.

The much-taller cowboy boosts the wrestler up to reach high shelves and clean tall windows, while the Mexican helps the cowboy open a jar.

Mexico's ambassador to Spain said Monday he has written a letter to Burger King's offices in that nation objecting to the ad and asking that it be removed. Jorge Zermeno told Radio Formula that the ads "improperly use the stereotyped image of a Mexican."
Hahahahahaha! I must disagree; I think BK quite properly used the "stereotyped image of a Mexican".

I gotta say though, Mexico has some nerve considering this, and this, and this, and this.

Mexicans: they can dish it out, but they can't take it. My advice? Tienes que relajar, amigos.
