TACO TIME

OK, I broke down and bought a small Pinkberry's yogurt with NO toppings for $4.

Was it worth it?

Hell, no. The yogurt had a sour taste and made my stomach bloat.

But I did find some good eats down the block.

Waiting for me on the corner of 14th street and 8th avenue was a Mexican food truck. Honey, the $2 tacos were heaven on earth and very authentic - corn tortillas loaded with chicken and laced with lime juice, sliced radishes and pickled peppers.

As I gobbled up my taco, I was suddenly surrounded by a group of Mexican hip-hop skateboarders. The hipster kids ordered their tacos and started break dancing while they waited for their eats.

It was 1 AM and I was being entertained by a group of ghetto fabulous Mexican kids while enjoying the best $2 taco in town.

Only in New York, kids.

Mexican hipsters sound delicious, son.

Mexican hipsters are pretty cool. Have you ever seen "Wassup Rockers?"

Technically, the movie features Guatemalan hipster/skaters, but they're cool none-the-less.

mexican hipsters need to crawl back to their country of origin

If my Mexican hipsters crawled back to their country of origin, I wouldn't have my yummy tacos - and that would be a bad thing.

The immigration thing is a tough problem. Instead of blaming the immigrants, I blame the big white businessmen who hire them and pay them dirt while knowing full well that they are illegal. I mean, these immigrants are just trying to have a better life.

That said, it does piss me off that they get free medical and schooling etc...while many seniors and others struggle to pay health insurance premiums etc..

It's a tough problem - one even the opinionated MM doesn't have an answer for. Although, I do think Muslims should definitely be put through the ringer before being allowed into this country.
