Menudo vs. Menudo

Posted on


Ricky_lSo MTV is producing a new reality show called The Road to Menudo, based on the popularity of Ricky Martin’s boyhood band. Seven boys from auditions being held around the country will be picked for the American Idol meets Making the Band series, which reportedly premieres next month. Without further ado, here are the top five things the seven “boys” are sure to have in common with the popular Mexican stew also known as Menudo:


  Stew Boys
1) Hominy They’ll be corny. Duh!
2) Red chile-based broth The token flaming queen is likely to be just as spicy.
3) Tripe One will be the token fatty.
4) Oregano One is probably smoking a similar-looking herb behind the school portables as we speak.
5) Cures hangovers One probably has an affinity for a guy named José. As in Cuervo.
