Got your 'Tiagra'? It must be Latin Joke Day

Dec 28, 2009, 4:00 PM EDT

If you’ve gone online repeatedly today to try and buy something called Tiagra, a sex drug which will cause you to admire Mexican women, I feel obliged to inform you that it’s all a joke. And sadly once again you’ve been fooled by the Day of the Innocents; Latin America’s equivalent to our April Fools Day, only they take it way more seriously. Evidently most of Mexico’s big media outlets are in on the fun, which this year included
lots of jokes at Tiger Woods’ expense, and also a front-page headline in the Excelsior newspaper announcing a change in the World Cup soccer game between Mexico and France. The paper reported that the game would be moved from South Africa to Mexico.
By the way, the photo here is no joke; it’s my favorite Tiger Woods pic ever. Lost, entangled in underbrush, appearing to be waving away photographers … just so metaphorically apt. Pretend he’s in Mexico here and a lemur just stole his ball. Ha.


But the main focus is on Woods, as you knew it would be.

“Mexican women are the best,” said an alleged quote from Woods in Mexico’s La Reforma daily, which included a set up photograph with Woods purportedly admiring a Mexican waitress.

The parody at the expense of the world’s most famous athlete came as Mexican journalists twisted world news as well as stories closer to home, including a report on an alleged new vaccine for H1N1 made from Tequila.

Another report claimed that the Catholic Church had changed its position on divorce, creating an Internet site for express marriage annulments.

“In less than 10 clicks and five minutes, this message appears: “Marriage over. Hallelujah! Have a nice day,” the Reforma report said.

Twisting news to make it funny and exciting? We’re above that sort of thing in this country.
By the way, have you entered this Tiger Woods Photoshop ad contest yet?

    Leave Tiger alone. The Players want him back, the public wants him back, and even his wife will re-kindle the relationship which will lead to them renewing thier vows at the same location they married before. Tiger will win the Masters, the US Open, top 5 in the British Open, Top 10 in the PGA. He will also win another 5 events around the country. Unfortunately, the marriage renewal will only last 5 years followed by divorce (but the friendly kind). There will be no other women involved. They will remain friends and raise their 2 great kids together. Sam will grow up to run one of Tiger’s companies having no interest in playing golf. The son on the other hand will have a stellar career on the course but will not match his father’s record. So there you have it, Tiger is coming back, Elin too so give them some slack and do your best to mind your own business.

    Comment to G.Bruce. Don’t you wish! He cooked his goose after Thanksgiving but before Christmas. So he can swing a golf club and hit the ball. That doesn’t make him immortal. I do hope his family can heal, not only his wife and children, but also his mother.

    G.Bruce. DUDE?!??! what are you smoking?!!??!
    I dont want him back. Nobody want a 13 Hoe hitting Black man, oh wait theres alot of them out there. Never mind!
    I hope he loses everything, theres always someone better then the best! The best of the best of the best, isnt always the best!
    Im glad for one! NO MORE ELDRICK TV!!!
    YEAH BABY!!! YEAH!!!! WOOOF WOOOF!

    Really people, does this really matter?? The economy is still in the toilet, the **** on wall street are still getting HUGE bonuses, and some **** tried to blow up a plane over Detroit. It’s time to drop this whole american puritanism and not worry about someone’s personal life and be more concerned about our nation’s well being. KMA

    Mr Arcadian: The anger that you have pent-up must be personal. What happened, was your wife one of those “13 Hoes hit by a Black man?” Probably wouldn’t blame her, needle-point.

    G. Bruce, didn’t realize we had psychics visiting this page. And to jo mama, please go visit the Newsweek or Time blogs. We don’t need your holier-than-thou garbage here.
    As for Tiger, I think he’s got a tough road ahead. I doubt his marriage will survive and he will never be viewed the same again. Personally, I think his golf will struggle and I hope he achieves the greatness that 19 majors will bring, even if he has an asterisk after his name.
    Why was he so stupid to get married? He could have had any woman a no one would have said a word. Ever heard of Derek Jeter?

    G. Bruce, How do you know these things?

  8. chicorgs - Dec 29, 2009 at 12:36 AM

    BEEN READING THESE COMMENTS FOR DAYS NOW AND IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME HOW SO MANY REVEL IN THE HEARTACHE AND TORMENT OF ANOTHER. IT MAKES YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING. BUT WHEN YOU GIVE IT A MINUTE TO SINK IN,WELL….YOU’RE KIND OF AT A LOSS FOR WORDS.I REALIZE WE ALL HAVE AN OPINION,BUT I THINK MANY USE THIS MANS MISTAKES AS THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO CLIMB ABOARD THEIR BIG HOLY WHITE HORSE OF LOOK AT ME OF NO MISTAKES.TIGER IS THE WORLDS GREATEST GOLFER, SEEM TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY,HAD ALL OF THE THINGS WE ALL WISH WE HAD JUST A PORTION OF.AND FOR WHATEVER THE REASON PUT IT IN HARMS WAY.SO NOW LETS JUST WISH AND HOPE HE LOSES EVERYTHING,HIS WIFE CLEANS HIM OUT,HIS CAREER IS OVER, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT CAN CAUSE PAIN OR GO WRONG DOES.WHY? BECAUSE HE’S TIGER? BECAUSE HE CHEATED? BECAUSE HE’S A WORLD REKNOWN MAN? OR DOES IT JUST MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF? THINK ABOUT IT. WHATEVER HIS THINKING IN THE PAST, I’M SURE THAT HE AND ELIN AND THEIR FAMILIES ARE HEARTBROKEN.I WOULD HATE TO BE IN THEIR SKINS EVERY MORNING TO AWAKEN TO THE HEARTACHE AND CONFUSION THAT I AM SURE DOMINATES THEIR LIVES RIGHT ABOUT NOW. MAYBE JUST TAKING TIGER OUT BACK AND SHOOTING HIM WOULD MAKE IT ALL BETTER AND MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER. AFTER ALL…I’M SURE YOUR BAG OF SINNER STONES ARE GETTING HEAVY. AND YOU ARE JUST THE ONE TO LAUNCH THEM, ARE’NT YOU?

  9. oldmanrules - Dec 29, 2009 at 4:07 AM

    Yeah man what cha on? I want some o that. Ya’ll can see the future an evry thin. Truth is: Elin is not wearing her wedding ring, she’s moving out and has a divorce lawyer. Now thems the facts, JACK, oh no, sorry G Bruce. Not that fantasy you are on.
    Just to throw it out there? Since it’s proven Tiger is a liar, cheat and infidel to his vows I wonder if he cheats at golf too?
    Just wondering?

    Years ago I was the same type of judgemental person that many of you appear to be. No one wants to give grace until they have been in a situation where they needed it…instead of judgement. We may think we know the details of Tiger’s life/situation, but we don’t. We only know what the media has fed us…and we all know that the media NEVER EVER LIES right? Yeah, right.
    People want to jump all over Tiger for his sinful life, but they don’t think any of their own faults are bad. Yes, Tiger REALLY REALLY screwed up, but just like all of us, he deserves second chance. Give it three years and most people will forget about this…just like they have forgotten about all the other athletes who have made similar mistakes. Give Tiger a chance a grow up and come to terms with life. If you were in his shoes you would want the same chance to change.

    It had to happen, He now knows that people only respects his Talent and not the Man. They will use him until they can’t use him no more, then they will find someone else. Giving him a false sense of who he really is was part of that plan, someone saw those Nasty Looking women coming and said nothing. Why was he not warned that these things were Pros at pleasing men, any man. His so called friends must have saw this and did nothing. Tiger, if you are reading this, just sit and think about everything that happened. It is hard to have true friends, they surround you for the money, not friendship. Pops was a good man, but he did not know that the only true friend is your wife. You suppose to do everything with your best friend. Now the healing starts, life is not over, learn from your mistakes and move on. I believe Pops when he said you will do Great things. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and finish what you’ve started. God is good, he puts us in a state of mind so we can truly see, be blessed.

    Eldrick will be back for the Masters. Prior to that he will make a pseudo emotional plea to his fans,sponsors for forgivness while seated next to Oprah. Ms. O will give Tiger an equally false I really understand and care reaching out I feel your pain talk. In the meantime, while the dust settles on his infidelity another current event will capture our attention. Until docks his yacht, Privacy and books his time on Oprahs chat show this scandal won’t go away.

    mr-Arcadian,
    Unfortunately for guys like you your inadequacy as a man is only overshadowed by your racist views. You don’t care about Tiger cheating on his wife. You only care that he had white women. This bothers you because you can’t help but wonder if your wife or girlfriend could have potentially been one of them. You wonder if they look at black men and compare them to you. This thought is particularly frighetening to you. Don’t fret. Any woman that would be with you is safe from Tiger or any other black man. Fear not, as yor significant other will attest its really the small things in life that make most people happy.

  14. ZoDouble - Dec 29, 2009 at 10:02 AM

    cheating at golf…you can only hope…don’t stay on the edge of your seat hoping and praying for that one satan

  15. Roxy Silver - Dec 29, 2009 at 11:55 AM

    Will the perfect person among you stand up!
    Man, we all make mistakes and some of them are very serious. But we all have to correct us and move on. That is what we learned from life. Tiger is a great athlete and a stupid guy too. He did a lot of good things through his Foundation. Other that the current scandal did he do anything against the law? In other words Tiger is another typical American or Canadian, as far as I’m concerned.
    You’re ready to forget your own mistakes made at your level; Tiger did mistakes at his level. Now he started to understand the serioousness of them. So it is completely up to him to reincarnate during his next phase of life.
    He is already reeceived the punishment and has to live with that. That is the bottom line here.
    Please don’t pretend you’re the only good human on the face of the earth.

  16. Bill Perry - Dec 29, 2009 at 12:04 PM

    I hope he drops the “S” from his last name….Good man, my Tigga! Keep it up….literally!
    What’s the difference between Tiger Woods & Hugh Hefner? Nothing!!

  17. smokehouse - Dec 29, 2009 at 12:27 PM

    G Bruce…Funny, funny, funny. I won’t call you an idiot. I will just think it. Oh, Roxy, I just stood up.

  18. Don Smith - Dec 29, 2009 at 3:01 PM

    G Bruce is right and this is an old story.
    I’ll be watching golf again, when Tiger comes back and I’m hoping Elin comes out of all of this in one piece, too… I’ve always liked her. But, I’m sure she will find her own happiness again, at some point- most people who go through this do.

  19. cheyennegully - Dec 29, 2009 at 8:55 PM

    So, your on the payroll as well. You really don’t believe that readers are gullible enough to actually believe you are are an independent voice and not a ‘a paid PR flack’. It’s so obvious you’re paid to track and refute any negative Tiger publicity on the Web. Get a life, we’re not that stupid.

  20. Phil - Dec 30, 2009 at 4:42 PM

    Pretend he’s in Mexico here and a lemur just stole his ball? Lemurs are indigenous to Madagascar, not Mexico, you dolt!

  21. Glendale - Jan 1, 2010 at 3:45 PM

    Do you personaly know Elin Woods???, Are you related to G. Bruce.
    You are STUPID, ARROGANT, and STUPID…

  22. Bob Johnson - Jan 2, 2010 at 1:23 PM

    Where did you come up with all that stuff G. Bruce? Leave him alone? Like that’s going to happen. Looks like you want this to be as painless for everyone as possible. Sure he’ll still win his share of golf tournaments. But for Elin to forgive and forget? That MIGHT have happened if there was only one woman involved in his cheating. But hey, wake up. There are at least a dozen of these bimbo’s and probably more. He’s a serial cheater. Can’t help himself, and most likely doesn’t want to. He’ll say he’s sorry, but what he really means is he’s sorry he got caught. Great golfer, lousy husband and for that matter a lousy, two-faced human being. His image is shattered…and it should be.
