    I Googled chancel yesterday just to understand what was what.

    Does nobody remember that Lalo did a Sunday strip on a horror movie called “Chancla” just a few months ago?
    I googled videos and it really is horrifying (and hilarious).

    Yeah, that was a new one on me, too, yesterday. But now we know.

    What’s the difference between a chancla and a huarache?

    Huaraches are heavy duty with a lot of leather. Closer to a shoe than a sandal. Back in the day they made them with soles made from tires. Those were mostly for export to us gabachos. You could buy them in TJ for cheap so they were pretty popular.

    If you have to explain a joke, it really isn’t a joke.
    But the bigger takeaway here is that now the rest of us know that Latina mothers universally use the sandals for physical abuse on their children.
    Lalo seems to be trying to make fun of the NFL dad, but what I’m seeing is that Lalo’s people can relate because of an equivalent experience of violence.
    And the fact that he brings it up more than once almost says he’s proud of it.
    Obviously there are times when children need a nudging reinforcement to teach them discipline, but I think most caring parents would rather not air their dirty laundry in public.
