Juan Bobo Trailer Park

NEW YORK, NY  – As part of his congressional campaign, Juan Bobo announced a revolutionary housing initiative for the people of  Washington Heights.

Bobo thrilled the crowd with a few card tricks, then yanked a tablecloth and revealed his ultimate miracle: a four-story, pre-fabricated trailer park.

“Now everyone in my district can own a dream home!” shouted Bobo. “Why should rich people have all the fun?”

According to Mr. Bobo, any registered Democrat will qualify for a trailer. All they have to do is vote for me.

“I’m bringing congress back to the people,” he said. “And the people want trailer parks.”

Juan Bobo Battles the     

Deepwater Horizon

GULF OF MEXICO  –  The Deepwater Horizon oil spill – also called the BP Oil Spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, or the Macondo blowout – is a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It is now considered the largest offshore spill in U.S. history.

The spill stems from a sea floor oil gusher that started on April 20, 2010.

As part of his campaign for U.S. Congress, Juan Bobo is in the Gulf Of Mexico. He is fighting to resolve this great environmental crisis.

A satellite photo shows Bobo stopping the spread of the Deepwater oil slick.

His opponents claim this is a maritime publicity stunt. These are the same people that accused another great Puerto Rican of a maritime publicity stunt.

They should all be ashamed of themselves.

Vote for Bobo. He is the real deal.

Juan Bobo in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV  – In a break from his congressional campaign, Juan Bobo took his musical skills to Las Vegas, to appear nightly at the Sands Hotel.

After just two weeks, Juan Bobo is being called “the new Wayne Newton” with such hits as Babalú Bobo, Boogaloo Bobo, Bugle Boy Bobo, and Gangnam Style Bobo.

Bobo also enchants the golden age ladies with classics like Volare and Let the Good Times Roll.

For a show-stopping finale, the Sands Hotel erected an outdoor tent. The whole audience marches in, sits down, and the spirit of Bobo enters the tent for a stirring rendition of Onward Christian Soldiers. This feat is so spectacular, that audiences have begun arriving from other hotels.

Juan Bobo History Lesson:

The Truman Assassination Attempt

On November 1, 1950, two men attempted to assassinate President Harry S. Truman. It was a desperate effort to turn the world’s attention to the U.S. colonial regime in Puerto Rico.

The attempt failed. Griselio Torresola was killed, Oscar Collazo was shot in the chest, and a policeman was killed.

For a one-sided newsreel about the assassination attempt, brought to you by the Liberty National Insurance Company, see here:

Juan Bobo History Lesson:

 Pablo Casals

Pablo Casals was the pre-eminent cellist of the first half of the 20th century, and one of the greatest cellists of all time.

He made many recordings throughout his career, of solo, chamber, and orchestral music, also as conductor, but he is perhaps best remembered for the recordings of the Bach Cello Suites he made from 1936 to 1939.

Pablo Casals’ mother was from Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. He married Marta Montañez y Martinez, a Puerto Rican woman, and lived in Puerto Rico the last 17 years of his life. He made an impact in the Puerto Rican music scene by founding the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra in 1958, and the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico in 1959.

In 1956 he founded the Casals Music Festival, which continues to be held yearly in San Juan. Here is film clip, of Casals playing the Bach Suite No. 1:

The Criollos de Caguas

CAGUAS, PR  –  In preparation for its 2014 season, the Puerto Rican winter baseball league just announced the new manager of the Criollos de Caguas.

As you may have guessed, the new manager is Juan Bobo. The outgoing manager, Adam Clayton Powell VII, was caught by surprise.

According to Powell, “Juan Bobo is a fraud. He knows nothing about baseball. The only way he got this job, was by bribing people in Caguas.”

Though Cotto is a  28-1  favorite, Juan has been training in the Isla del Carajo gym…the most rigorous and spartan gym in the world.

Two world-class heavyweights have died in Isla Del Carajo, as a result of the brutal training methods employed by their staff.

Juan Bobo Develops

Anti-Aging Drug 

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Juan Bobo has developed a revolutionary Coquito drink.  It contains the usual rum, Coco Lopez and Carnation evaporated milk…but according to the Puerto Rican, it also contains “a Jack LaLanne Hormone which adds 30 years to your life.”

This claim was recently tested by Dr. Claire Richmond, Chief of Internal Medicine at Staten IslandUniversityHospital. Within ten minutes, Dr. Richmond performed a scene from Rocky and invested $200,000 in the Puerto Rican’s company.

Push Up GrannyThe Coquito works within minutes

Also skeptical was Prof. Tomás Morales, President of the College of Staten Island. After half a cup of Coquito, the professor performed handstands for nearly an hour.

According to the Staten Island Advance, the Coquito formula is already under exclusive patent, and Bobo will be a billionaire within five years.

Juan Bobo drinks six glasses of Coquito a day. He was last seen doing 500 laps in the McBurney YMCA swimming pool.
