Can you be sexist, racist and ageist at the same time?

YES WE CAN!
Vintage swizzle sticks... Ahh, the great before when you could get away with this...
Made in Mexico... Agita-Dora is a untranslatable pun... Dora is a female name, Agitadora is shaker... Oh well, learn Spanish.

Recently noticed this tiki design on a wonderful old vacant building on Luis Moya in Mexico City.
I also saw the top tiki-head section posted on the doorways of the nearby derelict Orfeon theater.
Perhaps Zeta knows who is posting these?

Bien Eddy!
He is a street artist called NASH. I don't think he post those anymore... I met him personally about 5 years ago... I don't think he is "active" anymore... I traded stickers with him, the 3 Tikis, he also gave me a poster like the one on your picture... maybe I can post some picture later. Aloha amigos!

Where is Nash?

Made in Mexico... does anyone know if the records sold in the U.S. where made or printed in Mexico? I don't know if this records where made for the Mexican market or if they where just manufactured in Mexico to sell in the U.S.
