The President Of Mexico Pardons The Lunch Ladies - Allows Them Back Into The Country For KINÉ Fest
In October, the Ladies were an official selection of Mórbido Fest in Mexico City but blew it after drinking too much Mezcal, knocking over a giant armadillo float during a Day of the Dead Parade, wounding a chihuahua and causing horrified participants to scream for cover.
A Lunch Ladies ban was issued and met with unanimous approval by important Mexicans:
"Never come back again, Lunch Ladies (horribles señoras del almuerzo)."
Barely six months later, they were officially selected by KINÉ, Muestra de Cortometrajes. In an unprecedented turn of events, Enrique Peña Nieto ignored widespread protest and opened the borders to the Ladies. Apparently, unknown to all, he is a huge fan.
Said Seretta, grooming her eyebrows like Frida Kahlo in honor of the fest, said: "We couldn't be more thankful to The Rickster and promise not to embarrass him after he put himself on the line. No Mezcal. Is Tequila off limits?"
LouAnne, modeling sombreros and practicing her Samba, answered: "Yes, Seretta. Tequila is off limits. However, cerveza is always on the table. Thanks for the selection KINÉ, Muestra de Cortometrajes - party on!!"
KINÉ, Muestra de Cortometrajes is a noncompetitive fest that aims to celebrate the beauty of short film embracing even the hideous Lunch Ladies. It runs May 17-20 in Puebla, Mexico. Ticket details to follow!
