Hello there Gustavo,
The ‘Mexican word of the day’ are either humorous to the reader or not. Given that the phenomenon exists, I’d say that there is enough people that find the word play funny enough. Me, I think Cheech and Chong’s jokes funnier.
However, my relatives in Chihuahua have much more interesting (read cutting) jokes about the Norteamericanos and have for decades. These Mexican jokes are trivial and of no concern.
However, one of the funniest things I’ve seen was in Mexico at a gas station near Nuevo Casas Grandes where assorted fruit, oranges, etc., were offered for sale. The prices in English were 50% more than the prices listed in Spanish. Now that was humor.
