If You Laugh At These 20 Tweets About Abuelas, You’re Def Going to Hell

If You Laugh At These 20 Tweets About Abuelas, You’re Def Going to Hell

The matriarchs of our families, our abuelas deserve unwavering respect for everything they’ve done to love and raise us. Teaching us right from wrong, showing their love through food and quietly sacrificing for their loved ones, our grandmas are extraordinary people. Still, that doesn’t stop us from making fun of these hilarious little women.

There’s no better place to find jokes about our abuelitas than on Twitter. Whether it’s about their salty ways or their tough love, there’s plenty of tweets that poke good natured fun at them. Just don’t let your abuela catch you laughing.

They’re pretty funny, but if you laugh at these abuela tweets, you’re def going to hell.

1. Abuela just isn’t tech savvy.

Twitter / @noproperlady

To be honest, you’re probably lucky if your abuela’s house even has wifi. If it does, don’t count on an easy-to-remember password. Our abuelas didn’t come up in the tech age like we did so it’s understandable that this stuff is hard for them. Still, don’t make fun of your grandmother too much unless you want to be stuck doing tech support.

2. *Stares in Abuelita*

Twitter / @yeli_tu

Let’s be real, not much is going to stop an abuelita from making judgements about her grandchild’s life. Not even the afterlife. So, you can be sure that no matter what you’re doing, your abuela is somewhere out there looking at you while tiredly mumbling, “Ay, Dios.”

3. That authentic Abuela smell.

Twitter / @sarair_

Considering our abuelas stay trying to feed us, it makes sense that even their scent is tied to the kitchen. Whether it’s pozole and limón or menudo and pan dulce, those smells are kind of like your abuela’s personalized perfume. It might not be Chanel N°5, but it smells great to us.

4. You’re never too grown to get yelled at.

Twitter / @brittalaflame

If you think you’re old enough to avoid getting chewed out by abuela, think again. As matriarch of la familia, she’s earned the right to check you whenever she wants. However, it’s not just you that’s in for it. Whenever you feel bad about getting in trouble, remember all those times you’ve seen your abuela take your mom down too.

5. Don’t mess with perfection.

Twitter / @iwatchVHS

When it comes to things that are sacred, their home cooking is like a religion to our abuelas. You mess with that, and you’re messing with something almost holy. So, if you don’t want your abuelita to look like this, you might just was to comer los frijoles like she told you to.

6. She’s earned it.

Twitter / @kelseydarragh

Listen, abuela has had a hard day and she deserves to unwind. It may be 9 am here but what do they say about it being 5 o’clock somewhere? Don’t judge abuela. Just give her una mas tequila shot and go on with your business.

7. Abuelita tried to save our soul.

Twitter / @ItsAllBollocks

Mija, you’re precious to abuela. She only wants to make sure you’re protected in this world and the next. The least you could do is gargle some holy water and stop making fun of your poor abuelita.

8. The newest Olympic sport.

Twitter / @shadiacrespo

Abuela might love you, but she’s not above taking off her chancla and putting you in your place. So, abuela’s naturally going to dominate in this game. Look at it this way, you weren’t victimized by her chancla — you were just her training partner.

9. The Look™

Twitter / @Lib_Librarian

Garunteed, if you’re back on your BS, you’re going to get that official Look™ from your abuela. It could send a chill down the spine of the baddest hombre and stop your grown tios right in their tracks. Sure, it’s easy to make fun of the Look™ when you aren’t on the receiving end but you better hope abuela doesn’t turn it towards you.

10. Abuelita likes to party, too.

Twitter / @lelatoledo14

There are two possibilities here. This abuela could have only seen the word “Jesus” and shared it in hopes to spread el amor de Dios. Or, abuelita just likes to par-tay. Either way, you do you, grandma and thanks for the laugh.

11. She’s got your best interest at heart.

Twitter / @Viciousjess

If you think you have freedom to pursue anyone you want, think again. When she asks “Y el novio?” she’s not trying to see someone with a giant tattoo on his face. Unless that tattoo is La Virgincita or the crucifixion. Those MIGHT get a pass.

12. Sana sana colita de rana

Twitter / @fifyy01

Abuelas made Vivaporu what it is today. Now, even folks outside the Latinidad know the power of this little jar. That being said, if abuelas could mix their love of food with their love of Vicks, we’d already know it. However, there’s no doubt they already tried it.

13. Savage, abuela, savage.

Twitter / @WandyFelicita

Abuelas don’t hold their tongues when it comes to criticizing their grandkids. In fact, you’re sure to get some solid shade if abuela is feeling especially feisty. That art of subtle yet devastating shade is something you can’t be taught. You simply inherit the talent when you become an abuelita yourself.

14. This look didn’t age well.

Twitter / @rauls2cool

Keep in mind this was the style back in the day, but that tattooed makeup didn’t age well with the changing trends. Especially when it comes to those thin, high-arched eyebrows abuela has tattooed up on her forehead. Still, be careful about teasing abuela over this look unless you want her to roast you on your own makeup game.

15. Abuela swears by it.

Twitter / @krystashayeoh

If you look in every purse and bag in your abuela’s home, you’re going to find tubs of Vaporu. According to her, this magicial miracle can cure your cold, stop your runny nose, heal your broken bones, heal your broken heart and find you a new man. Here’s to hoping we can believe in ourselves as much as our abuelas believe in vaporu.

16. Abuela didn’t raise no diablos.

Twitter / @commonhspanicg

Abuela didn’t raise no dark brujas so you better not show up looking like one. If you come around with those devil nails, be prepared to get on your knees and recite the rosario for the rest of the night. She’s just trying to save your soul, mija, and that’s no laughing matter.

17. Every Abuela everywhere.

Twitter / @kaliwhatchumean

No matter where your grandma is from or how old she is, she probably looks like this. It’s only natural. One day you look like yourself, and the next day you’ve become an abuela. Is it funny? Sure, but you might not want to laugh. This is a glimpse into your own future, after all.

18. Masters of chisme.

Twitter / @taejinkoook

If you want that good chisme, you’ve got to head to abuela’s kitchen for the download. She’s got the goods on the whole community and she’s ready to spread everyone’s business. Except for you, of course. She’d never gossip about her precious grandchild. Just kidding; she’s totally talking about you too.

19. We get it from our abuelas.

Twitter / @DiovanniFrazier

Abuela has always been a bad babe, but when she was your age, she was the fiercest mujer on the block. She definitely hasn’t forgotten about it. So, if you ever start feelin’ yourself a bit too much, allow abuelita to humble you a bit. It will serve as a reminder of what a babe SHE was.

20. Every BBQ ever.

Twitter / @commonhspanicg

If anyone deserves to kick back and enjoy the asado, it’s abuela. Grab her a cerveza and fix her un otro plato. Our abuelas give us so much joy, fun, love and knowledge so let’s show these cute old ladies our respect.

After I Went To Urgent Care My Doctor Told Me That These Chips Send People To The ER All Of The Time

After I Went To Urgent Care My Doctor Told Me That These Chips Send People To The ER All Of The Time

Anyone who has ever snatched open one of the classic purple bag’s made up of pica hot Takis knows that they’re entering into a certain kind of uncertain territory the moment they pop the spicey chip fare into their mouths. Takis are predictable and yet slightly unpredictable. They’re going to scortch your tongue, but how much is up in the air. It’s part of the fun. Mostly because, in a way, they put your strength to the test. Can you endure the red-hot taste that will be unleashed onto your tongue by the tightly twisted chips you’ve plucked from the bag? Or are you un llanto bebé? You know, the kind that can’t stand the heat?

If I’m being honest, for me, Takis have admittedly acted as a taunting trial of my Latinidad. I’m a Cuban-American. We don’t use extreme spice or picante to pepper our foods and bring out flavor (I won’t test you all by proclaiming that our food is amazing enough without it… PERO it is), we use other amazing flavors to punch up and enrich our cuisine. Still, as members of the Latinx community, we are consistently subject to comments when others find out that we don’t die and go bananas for spicey food (Not all Latinos eat spicey food y’all! Dang!)

And yet, even despite my confidence in my personal taste and likes in flavors, every once in a while I find myself feeling slightly put off by the faces of “¡¿Qué, qué?¡”

It’s why, earlier this week when a co-worker asked if I wanted a few Takis of her own, I didn’t say “no.”

@colbertlateshow / Giphy.com

I didn’t want to have to hear how I was any less Latino because I can’t handle the spice. (I CAN.. sometimes)

But also Takis are mad good son, so I took some.

And then, because chips definitely have addictive properties, I kept helping myself to more.


Sidenote: I did this despite the fact that my entire mouth felt like a spate of flames had been set upon it.

It didn’t take long for me to realize that the bag I was eating up had a particularly spicey brand of Takis.

Alicia Keys / Youtube.com

You know you should be on high alert with a glass of water on standby when you find your Takis are dark brown and not bright red.

After I felt sufficiently full and as if my mouth couldn’t stand more of a burning…

I gulped down some water between spurts of coughs and went back to work.

@identity / giphy.com

Later on in the day, I headed out of work and to my car to go home. Takis were no longer on my mind and I was no longer attempting to choke through my tears so no one would call me out for being un llanto bebé. 

But on my car ride home I realized there was something terribly wrong.

@am85 / Giphy.com

The roof of my mouth was speckled with red dots and was a bit itchy. Earlier that week I had already gone to urgent care after I had eaten sushi and got a chopstick splinter stuck in my tonsil (yah rubbing your sticks together is really important guys). I quickly began to panic and realized that not all of the splinter had been taken out (as I had feared) and that my mouth was infected.

I texted a picture of it to my mom, for some comfort.

“Riverdale” / CW

She’s a doctor, I figured she’d talk me down.


Instead, I got the fear of God instilled in me after she yelled at me to go urgent care right !! away!! or risk death.


She said and I quote “Alexandria! You are very sick! And you clearly have an infection that could spread to your brain and you could DIE! Go to Urgent Care this instant!”

(geez wonder where I get my anxiety from)

Things went down hill from there.

There were no urgent care centers open so so I waited all night alert of my impending death from meningitis until I could go the next day.

In the morning I hightailed it to the ONE urgent care I could find open at 8 am in Los Angeles.


I sat nervously in my doctor’s waiting room, wondering how many days I had to live until a nurse came and called me to the back.


After a few questions about my health and history from my doctor and an explanation of my chopstick splinter experience, he examined my mouth.

When he was done, he sat down and asked if I had “ever heard of Takis?”

reddit.com / giphy.com

Um why yes, of course, I had. “I just had some yesterday…”

Then my doctor explained to me that irritation on the roof of mouths is fairly common for people with Takis.

Then he charged me a $50 copay and sent me on my way.


And that folks, is the story of how I found out that those Takis did not come to play. In fact, they came for your paycheck.
