One of the odder --and, if you like, charming-- aspects of modern Mexico is its habit of making celebrities out of silly drunks who are featured on local news programs and then uploaded to the internet. There was Pedro of "Qué pasó muchacho" fame en Torreón, Monterrey's Dulce Sarahí, who had a series of run-ins with the law, and many others. And now, the latest, is Don "Fua", who you can see up above. Don Fua seems to have gone further than any of his predecessors, and is now a political inspiration: Ernesto Cordero is capitalizing on his now-famous phrase, promising to make use of his own personal "fua" in his presidential run. Good luck to you on that, Secretary.
