Cuco and Yayo…priceless

With apologies to my English speaking readers, I had to share this with the cubiches in my family and friends circle. This abuela explains how the internet search engines work, Google (Cuco) and Yahoo (Yayo).

The brilliant elements here are of course the Cuban propensity for calling anybody a derivative of their given names, and the omnipresence of Cuco’c/Lalo’s/Yayo’s et al. Absolute brilliance! If you read Confessions of a Middle-Aged Cubanita then you know I love the nicknames.

I’ve been reading My Big Fat Cuban Family for a while and regret not having caught this sooner. But here it is, and I encourage you all to give her a read too. She writes in English, even though the video is in Spanish.
