Juan of Words

¡Regio! ¡Regia!

O sea, ladies and gents, allow me to introduce you to my new guilty pleasure. Cindy La Regia! She’s Mexico’s most famous niña fresa who’s been immortalized into an uber-popular cartoon character by artist Ricardo Cucamonga, and I just so happened to come across her singular style and sense of humor while I was looking up the definition for the word ¡regio!

We’ll get to that in a minute, but first I just want to share how insanely hilarious this character is, albeit a bit politically incorrect as well. I’ve been cracking up at her comic strips all evening, and I’ve even followed her on Twitter already too.

Pero bueno, now to the definition of regio. According to the Free Dictionary by Farlex, regio is 1) proper to regal or royal; 2) something that is magnificent or substantive; or 3) it applies to a ballroom that is splendid or majestic. The adverb definition by the same source means “used to manifest the acceptance of something in a very enthusiastic form.”

I’d say all of the above are correct. O sea, ¡que regio!

Now back to the business of Cindy. Enjoy these memes from her webpage 🙂

There’s also an interview with her creator at the end from CNN Mexico.
