How to tell you're latino

i got this off of someones page, I was on the floor:

1) If you have ever been hit by a chancleta.

2) If you grew up scared by something called "El Cuco" or "El Coco"

3) If others tell you to stop screaming when you are really just talking.

4) If you light a candle to Virgin Mary on the night of the lotto drawing.

5) If you use your lips to point something out.

6) If you constantly refer to cereal as "con fleys".

7) If your mother yells at the top of her lungs to call you for dinner, even if it`s a one bedroom apartment.

8) If you can dance merengue, cumbia, or salsa without music.

9) If you use "manteca" instead of olive oil and can`t figure out why your butt is getting bigger.

10) If you call your sneakers "tenis".

11) If you have at least thirty cousins, not including loco Julio working at "Don Pipo`s".

12) If you can`t imagine anyone not liking spicy food.

13) If you are in a five passenger car with seven people in it and a person is shouting "subanse, todavia caben!"

14) If whenever you feel under the weather, you compulsively dab on some "vaporub" all over your chest and inside your nostrils.

15) Your mom packs your "lonchera" every day even though you`ve just turned thirty-two.

16) If you call the North Americans "gringos", including Canadians, and call all Asian people "chinos".

17) If you just don`t get tired of the so called "sopitas".

18) If you don`t think Jennifer Lopez is hot, "she`s just another latina with luck".

19) If your favorite heroes were "El Chapulin Colorado", or "Cantinflas".

20) If you don`t need any explanations, you know you are truly a Latino!
