Hablando de lo que pica el gallo…formando un arroz con mango.
You were young, your room was a mess y mami tenia el palo de trapear in hand and was yelling at you to recoger. Instead, you were on the phone, playing video games, painting your nails or fighting with your siblings. When she finally realized you weren’t doing what was supposed to be done, she called you by your name, her loud, Cuban voice bellowing out your first, middle and last name(s) and said, “Hagame el favor, para de comer lo que pica el pollo.”
Lo Que Pica El Gallo is a movement to do just that; to stop eating at what the chickens peck at (or eat) and move on to greater things. Lo Que Pica El Gallo derives from that very saying, of speaking or doing (in the sense of the idiom) what the chickens eat. And since Gallos are older and more mature than chickens in general, we like to think of our content on LQPG as a lot more sophisticated. We’ve grown and started to pick at bigger and better things. Don’t let the name fool you, although our opinions about our habits, our culture and our customs are radical and exaggerated, the truth behind our Cubanism is in-tact and is far from feces per say. We would never undermine our content, we just don’t want anyone to take any offense to some of the nonsense that may come out of our humor. Follow us as we trace our memories of growing up in our Cuban households as first generation Americans, and share with you our insights, experiences and discoveries across the hectic streets of Miami.
