More on that gallows humor circulating south of the border
"Ya oste que Mxico se ha convertido en una potencia mundial?", reza un chiste. "Cuando estornuda, todo el planeta se enferma".

Have you heard Mexico has become a world power? When she sneezes, the world gets sick

Yep, that is that dark humor that I love... and good for the psyche too

By the way, some folks SHOULD try this... laughing is good for you

1. When our people start dying we'll be funny here, too.
Gallows humor requires at least a corpse.

4. Hey, sometimes laughing
even bitter laughter is the best response to stress.
