Tacos El Bronco is the realest of the real Mexican restaurants in Brookyn. I feel like I'm allowed to voice my authority on what constitutes a "real" Mexican place as I've been to probably a hundred little taco joints in actual Mexico and the only difference between those places and this one is that you're allowed (even encouraged) to flush the toilet paper here. I'm talking $1.50 tacos, real. Topless women gracing the covers of Meringue Hits Volume 3 in the jukebox, real. Paper streamers up all fucking year because Mexicans don't need a reason to celebrate, real. But back to the main point- $1.50 tacos?!!! That's like fucking 15 Pesos! It's nothing! So anyhow, this place is the shit and my boyfriend and I eat here at least twice a week and we love it.
So around Christmas I went in for some tacos and they gave me this amazing Tacos El Bronco calendar, which I was SO, SO insanely excited about. Upon immediately running out the door, dropping my bags on the sidewalk and tearing the calendar open, I was met with serious disappointment. It appears some group of people settled on the theme of "baby humans + baby animals", and the result turned out to be one of the more horrific displays of "art" this side of Gallagher.
Exhibit B; October 2013
Exhibit C; May 2013.
Propped up on a paper towel, and playing second fiddle to one of the ugliest babies I've ever seen in my life (and don't even start with the "babies are miracles!" bullshit, because you are wrong. Most babies are accidents, not miracles, and not even the good kind of accidents like Post-Its.) This puppy is doomed to live out his days in Resentments City.
Exhibit D; August 2013.
And finally, the most redeeming/most disgusting aspect of all,
Exhibit E; July 2013
Tacos El Bronco, stop! Just stop. You put the black baby with a pile of black puppies AND a football??? Come on. This isn't even the most racist offense on the calendar. April's "Fun Baby Fact" states that "All babies-even black ones-have a ruddy complexion. This is because their blood contains a high number of red blood cells."
(long, terribly awkward silence)
How about just "all babies"?
I'm still gonna eat here all the time though.
