"Si te gusta el sexo oral, vote por Caragol por consejal."

("If you like oral sex, vote Caragol for council.") Just some political slogan in Hialeah, Florida, which the Miami Herald informs us is "no laughing matter." The Miami Herald isn't going to tell me when to laugh.
"People want to give it a negative interpretation, but anyone who knows me and my way of being knows that I didn't mean for the comment to degrade or offend anyone,'' [Jose "Pepe" Caragol told The Miami Herald.
"My way of being" — I love that. I'm going to use that. Anyone who knows my way of being knows....

Caragol's opponent, Mercy Dominguez, wants us to know "that as a mother and a woman she finds the phrase offensive."
Caragol is quick to note that Dominguez did not point out the rest of the zingers he dished out at the Seguro Que Yes! taping.

''I also said that I was the only V-I-P councilman appointed to the board,'' Caragol said. "Viejo, impotente, y presumido -- old, impotent, and vain.''

For now, Caragol says he'll be sticking to a new campaign slogan -- "Olvídese del colesterol, y vote por Caragol'' -- "Forget the cholesterol and vote for Caragol.''
The man is an irrepressible poet. The woman is a dreary scold. Life goes on.

this sharpens Katherine Harris into perspective doesn't it.

I think Larry Craig has his new campaign slogan.

A vote for Caragol will improve my chances of getting oral sex?

Telecomedian said...

That slogan sucks.

Kiley said...

Good thing he didn't Clintonize it and make it like a handshake- where's the fun in that?

"Si te gusta el sexo oral *que no es relación sexual*, vote por Caragol."

Whenever someone says "that's not funny", said person concedes the argument. I know of no exceptions to this rule.

Mel Brooks was the master of "inappropriate" humor.

cara = face

gol = goal


So if your looking for the oral sex candidate, look no further than Pepe Caragol.

Keep in mind that Hialeah is the most corrupt city in the most corrupt Miami-Dade County. No doubt there is more to this slogan than we know.

"Sure! I love to talk about sex as much as the next guy!"

"The man is an irrepressible poet."

Or maybe he's just a potty-mouthed old gasbag trying to mask his lack of substance with shock value.

Maddad said...

could be worse, he could be trying to mask his lack of substance by squirting out a couple of kids.

Will he vote for it if he gets elected?

Could enliven televised council meetings.

Perhaps if he does not get elected he could do Bill and Monica reenactments. Probably more fun than Civil War reenactments.

Which reminds me re: all that Civil War reenacting. Why is it always battles? Why not visits to camp followers?

Lo que es bueno hoy
Quizas no lo sea mañana
He ahi el valor del momento
He ahi el presente perfecto

La oportunidad de llegar
tu veras si te montas en ella
Agarrate fuerte
Y ya no te sueltes

Rie, llora
Que a cada cual le llega su hora
Rie, llora
Vive tu vida y gozala toda

Todo es tan relativo
No es que recuerde, si no que no olvido
Eso es el perdon, recordar sin dolor
Agarrate fuerte, y ya no te sueltes

Rie, llora
Que a cada cual le llega su hora
Rie, llora
Vive tu vida y gozala toda

Rie, llora
Vive tu vida y gozala toda
Rie, llora
Esta negrita no pasa de moda

Esta negrita no pasa de moda
Y con mi ritmo, mi ritmo, gozenlo ahora

Ay que sabroso es
Ay que sabroso
Que sabrosito es
Este ritmo de ahora

Esta negrita no pasa de moda

Te lo dije

(Celia Cruz 1987)

He said a mouthful.

He's just letting the ladies know that the tongue still works even if other things don't.

Janet Reno, too.

..te gusta el sexo oral?

Not that I do abroad, but if I did it is so handy to know what to ask in a casual, almost throwaway, conversational manner.

Please though supply the requisite 'Yes please, at once if possible' / 'No thank you, but kind of you to enquire' response, as I would hate to get that one confused.
