That is actually a fairly old practice. Fark even had a link to early photographs of dead folks posed with their families only last month.

Aww. That's sweet.  I hope my family does the same with my corpse, only in a bar.  I'll take care of the pickling to save them some trouble.

then everyone there can kinda just leave one by one and leave your corpse there to pick up the tab.

I don't believe it's a deliberate attempt at racism, so put the outrage away Francis.

As for posing with the corpse. It's been done for years. Post mortem photography was all the rage in the 19th century. Personally, I think it's gruesome, but most people's tolerance of death and seeing death is probably higher than mine.

...link to an article (tastefully done) on the British website The Daily Mail. Still, may not be safe for work. View with caution.

One of my drinking buddies is counting down the days right now, cancer from Agent Orange. He's made some things clear about his funeral: Open bar, no crying (even his wife), friends posing for pictures. He wants people to have good memories about saying their goodbyes to him, not just remembering the good times when he was alive.

The actual semantics of it isn't my point.  My point is submitter has been called a racist and a bigot because of four words "Stay classy Puerto Rico".  Sure, it's a prejudicial inference and incorrect in this case, but dropping those words so easily reduces their impact and ultimately negates all effectiveness.  Is submitter a racist/bigot?  I have no idea and neither do you.

FWIW - I came in to mock submitter for those four words, but found the racist asshattery to be much more entertaining.

Yeah.... that's not a typical puerto rican funeral/wake tradition. It's actually some tacky PR ghetto shiat.

This is what a typical puerto rican funeral is supposed to look like... at least in the 1890's. There's supposed to be booze and lechon and music.

Real nations get to pick the anthem they want. The current PR official anthem was a runner-up.... because the original was deemed to be subversive by American authorities.  The original anthem's lyrics spoke of revolution and independence (from Spain) and the gringos thought a less confrontational song about how pretty PR is would make a better anthem. It would be the equivalent of someone forcing the US to replace the Star Spangled Banner with America the Beautiful. It's actually kind of sad and pathetic.

I like to bag on Puerto Ricans as much as the next guy, because they are the ghetto fabulous of the latinos, but I would say the best song about Puerto Rico is En Mi Viejo San Juan.

I will never forgive Puerto Rico for reggaeton and Ivy Queen.  I would rather listen to the fat lead singer from Son by Four and Gilberto Santa Rosa fart a duet with Jerry Rivera as the backing vocals than listen to either.

The Star Spangled Banner talks about bombs. Machetes were a weapons used by nationalist fighters in both Cuba and PR. Most national anthems make references to war and violence.

And the reason Cuba is named in the original anthem is because when Jose Marti declared Cuban independence, he was also declaring PR independence. Many Puerto Ricans fought in Cuba. It was a bigger front and the more valuable colony. Once Cuba was free, the Spanish would have less of an incentive to keep Puerto Rico and the Cubans had vowed to take the fight over to PR if they had to. That's why they belonged in that anthem and why the flags are similar.

You're welcome.


Your memory jog jogged my memory of a literal honest-to-goodness mom & pop burger joint that used to exist. They had Spy Hunter and a few others. Excellent cheeseburgers and non-greasy fries for cheap, and the games set to medium difficulty,(the pinball was 50 cents, so that usually broke my budget, though, hence less play heh) not a bad way for a young boy to spend an afternoon; the owners would even smile and lean in and watch sometimes like you may have seen in a movie. Was so sad when they sold it
. (as a possible quirk of fate, the new owners of the location are extremely nice)

So for all intents and purposes you are Puerto Rican but with Cuban heritage.

I am American born with Colombian heritage.  I do not say Colombian-American, because it would sound just as silly as Cuban-American born.  Especially, Cuban American, Puerto Rican born.  I have citizen ship in Colombia,  Panama, and the US.  I was born in the US, so I am just american.

Unfortunately, many US Puerto Ricans who run around with Puerto Rican flags on their cars, calling themselves boricuas, and who only know middle school Spanish, have no clue about their protectorate or their culture.  They just pay lip service to it, because like most Americans they look for something to base their identity on.    Latinos have too much false pride.

And as a brown person Puerto Rico needs to become a state or go at it alone.  Right, now you have all the bennies without any of the downside.  Who would want to become a state?

The guy was merely pointing out that your national anthem was whitewashed...

Wait, Puerto Ricans are a race now? Just like Mexicans, you get enough of them together, they claim thay're a "race" as well, but truth be told, they share a common European ancestor, despite most of them coming to America via the Canary Islands.
Sure they breed like beetles in "The Mummy" but overall it's a cultural thing, and nothing race based about it.
