Secrets to a Hot Latin Body Can be Found on a Midtown Food Cart


I don’t know why I found this so funny.  Admittedly I know nothing about selling books, but if you are going to advertise “The Hot Latin Diet”, don’t you think there are better places than street carts?  And even if you must go with a sidewalk vendor as your canvas of choice, wouldn’t one of those fresh juice carts be a better choice?  And what was the vendor thinking?  Do you really want to remind people how fat they are, just before they step up to your cart for their 75 cent coffee with doughnut chaser?

Seeing as how I consider myself the prototypic street cart customer, I can’t see how this book will appeal to anybody willing to buy pastries out of a mobile tin can, parked on a Midtown sidewalk.  Unless ”Hot Latin Diet” is one of those crazy weight loss programs (Atkins I’m looking at you) that involves eating more carnitas?  Does it involve stuffing your face with roast pork?  Because I’d buy that book.


  • Oh dear lord, you don’t want to know what goes into my latin diet. Let’s see, last night I had grilled skirt steak with a side of beans, corn tortillas, cotija cheese, salsa verde and a negra modelo beer.

    I haven’t lost a pound yet, but I’ll keep at it.

  • Mamacita,

    As Sir-Mix-A-Lot said in his timeless classic “Baby Got Back”:

    Give me a sister, I can’t resist her
    Red beans and rice didn’t miss her
    My anaconda don’t want none
    If you ain’t got buns, hun
