Let's have a frank discussion about the "patronage" of ballet in the 19th Century:
Or we can just put quotations around the words "patronage" and let everybody draw their own conclusions. There's even a John in a tux in the background for Degas' sake!

Vintage Jayne Mansfield was really hot.
And it's her birthday today! She also gave the world Mariska Hargitay so she's practically a saint, right? 'Nuff said.

Do you know any Undercover Mexicans?
An undercover Mexican is a person that is of Mexican heritage, but is generally considered ambiguously ethnic or white or anything else other than Mexican (perhaps Pakistani or Indian even). Anthony Quinn, James Roday, me, and the majority of my family are good examples.
If you do know any, and feel like sharing, please submit a picture and the back story of an undercover Mexican you might know and/or love (famous or not, we all brothers undercover) to my other blog "Undercover Mexicans". I'd prefer a picture of the undercover Mexican not looking Mexican AND looking pretty Mexican... check out the other blog if you want examples. You can also submit any other bizarre Mexican related things for shits and giggles to email@example.com as well. Just title your submission "Undercover Mexican." Thanks!
