Goodbye Blue Sky

Not content to annoy us simply with loudspeakers mounted on trucks, bicycles, fat-ass Jesus freaks, and...shit, we don't even know what this is - Querétaro's megaphone-based advertising community has now taken to air.



This barnstorming braniac has been strafing the Centro several hours a day for about the past week and a half, playing the same advertisement over and over - and still, we have no idea what it's for. Between the roar of the engine, the Doppler Effect, and the fact that the guy is a mile above us, we've only been able to make out the words "Querétaro," "today," thank you," and "20 pesos" - meaning that whatever this clown is burning all this gasoline in the hope of selling to us, it costs about a buck-fifty.

According to the Wikileaks cables, the US has been worried that the Mexican cartels might acquire Russian anti-aircraft missiles. If any of our readers happen to belong to a cartel which has, in fact, acquired anti-aircraft missiles, please get in touch with us via the email address on the right. Confidentiality guaranteed.

It sounded like Calzada asking for donations to his re-election campaign.
