The Livin' Dead

How alluring is Querétaro? Not only are students flocking here from around the country; families moving here to escape the violence of the close-to-the-US regions; and tourism on the rise - Querétaro is apparently also a great place to dump a body! At least according to this maddeningly vague story, which claims that, since December, three dead bodies - all men in their early 50s who died of excessive consumption of alcohol - have been found in the streets of the capital despite the fact that they're not from here! Why this means they were dumped here rather than died here is not made clear, but assuming they're right, this means actually being alive is not even a requirement for livin' it up in the QRO. C'mon down!

We moved here from WV in Oct. and we love it. We also do a blog to educate the folks back in the US. Check us out at

Welcome! From a quick tour of your site, it appears you live a block and a half away, in a house previously occupied by some acquaintances of ours. Small world!

Unfortunately, though you seem like lovely people, we simply can't allow another English-language expat blog to set up shop within 100 meters of Burro Hall, so we're going to have to ask you to leave. (Reminding you, parenthetically, that we just wrote a post about the best places to dump a body in this town.)

You have 24 hours.

So, fuck you. I guess you have to leave!

How about this story in the Edmonton Journal about the BBC's defense of their quirky British humour? I submit that it qualifies for your competition because it’s illustrated by a photo captioned “A local police car is seen with two bullet holes in Acapulco, Guerrero state, Mexico on March 13, 2010.”

OK, the above comment was meant to be an entry for the Crowbar Award, the post above this one. I guess I lost out of the starting gate.
Me again.
