Guillermo Gonzalez was sent by his boss to Veracruz to measure some lands. He went by horse. Because it was very hot, he stopped to take a short rest by the river. He fell asleep and heard a voice in his dream that was calling him. He woke up and saw three crocodiles ready to attack him. He’s sure it was the Virgin of Guadalupe who warned him in his dream, and he thanks for saving him.

One cold night, a flying saucer landed near doña Francisca Gomez’ house. A martian came out of it and wanted to get inside trough a window to take a doggy. But señora grabbed a broom and gave him tremendous trashing so that he ran to his spaceship. Thanks, Virgin of Guadalupe, because I thought he was going to abduct me with my two doggies.

I thank the Virgin of Guadalupe for saving me from being bitten by a shark when I was surfing at the beaches of Baja California during my honeymoon. I’m grateful for staying alive and enjoying my marriage.

Nayely gives infinite thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe because her husband didn’t find out that she cheated on him in this hotel with his boss and saved him in this way from being thrown to jail for crashing his boss’ car. She asked for forgiveness, but she did it out of love for her husband.

I got drunk with a martian. Thanks, it was fun.

Thanks, Brown-skin Virgin, for making so that Marcela doesn’t want to whiten her skin any longer with the creams that say they help to make her white-skin. I’m proud to be brown-skin, and Marcela is too now, and I’m very much grateful.
