After years of false alarms, the Cuban American community in the 305 was finally able to celebrate the end of an era. A very painful era. While some may think it’s un poquito morbid to bang our pots and pans in excitement over someone’s death, we prefer to see it as a celebration of a new chapter in Cuba’s story. Here are a few of the reactions you may have seen when news first broke of the dictator’s death:
1. Pure ecstasy
“Pa’rriba, pa’ bajo, Fidel pal’ carajo!”
He’s really gone? Are we sure this time? I don’t want to ruin my new Rachael Ray cookware for nothing.
I wish my abuelos were here to see this.
Coño, his brother is still alive.
Oh, so everyone is an expert on Cuban history now? Looking at you Colin Kaepernick.
I gotta text all my primos, call the fam in Cuba and update my Twitter. TOO MUCH TO DO.
Pero like, what’s gonna happen now?
