Mexico needs to make us all wish to move there and control its borders. Pumping plenty of oil would help.

There is only one officially acceptable joke in the US today:

“GOP” stands for “gringos y otros pendejos,”

Until further notice, if you find your self in a situation that requires a joke you may use that but nothing else.

That's what's so great about the World Cup (and the Olympics) - it's a time when nations can meet on common ground and the crude drumbeat of incessant nationalism is broken by love and peace and international chumship.

I'm hoping nobody gets kilt out of this, but it sure isn't the way to bet.

So a perfectly polite greeting in Spanish is now offensive?

My first question is...who the bleep is Gael Bernal? My second question is why should I give a rat's hindquarters what he/she/it thinks of this airline?

That’s the problem with such a gigantic ego ... people have a greater opportunity to step on it!

Bet Mr Mexico says nothing when Mexican fans dump urine and feces balloons on visiting...and even home fans. This has happened at a number of matches vs the USA over the years

El Tri...its more like El Pee

Thought it was funny, and not hurtful. KLM should never have apologized

it amazes me how so many get upset over the slightest thing today.
Don’t like what is said then fine, don’t laugh but to act like a pathetic little spoiled brat is another thing.
