In every language, there are some words that don’t quite make the leap over the cultural divide. Bimbo would be one of those. In Mexico, Bimbo is the name of a giant food conglomerate that ranks No. 4 globally, behind Unilever, Sara Lee, and Nestlé; in America, bimbo tends toward, well, this.
So as we move into December, and therefore into the “real” holiday season (none of this Christmas stuff hung in October crap), let’s remember the differences that make cultures unique — and that sometimes it’s OK to wear a shirt that says “Bimbo” on it. Just probably not here. — Bryan
