Running with scissors since 1970-something... Stay whimsical. Be incredible. It's your story.


The summer of 2006 brought us a holy cast of comical and catchy characters from south of the border: Nacho, Esqueleto (a.k.a. Steven), Sister Encarnación, Chancho, and the feared Luchador, Ramses. It was the beeeeest!

Chancho, when you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It's for fun. – Nacho

Nacho: I'm not listening to you! You only believe in Science. That's probably why we never win!

Esqueleto: We never win because you are fat!

Sister Encarnación: Where are your robes, Ignacio?

Nacho: They were... stinky. These are my recreational clothes.

Sister Encarnación: They look expensive.

Nacho: Thank you. I mean... they might have the appearance of riches, but beneath the clothes, we find a man... and beneath the man we find... his... nucleus.

Sister Encarnación: Nucleus?

They think I do not know a buttload of crap about the Gospel, but I do! – Nacho

Nacho: I'm a little concerned right now. About... your salvation and stuff. How come you have not been baptized?

Esqueleto: Because I never got around to it ok? I dunno why you always have to be judging me because I only believe in science.

Precious Father, why have you given me this desire to wrestle and then made me such a stinky warrior? – Nacho

Nacho: Do you remember when everyone was shouting my name, and I used my strength to rip my blouse.

Esqueleto: Yea, and I saw them knock you unconscious, ok?

Sister Encarnación: Ignacio, I have been looking all over for you, where have you been?

Nacho : I have been here. I have been sleeping.

Sister Encarnación: In a frilly shirt and slacks?

Nacho : They are my PJ's

Sister Encarnación: Can I come in?

Nacho: No, people might get the wrong idea about you... Like maybe you are a floozy.

Sister Encarnación: Wrestling is ungodly Ignacio. People cheer for him... and he is a false idol.

Nacho: Whatever.

I was wondering if you would like to join me in my quarters this night... for some toast. – Nacho

My life is good. Reeeeal good. – Nacho
