‘Siren of the Lambs’ is in essence a depressed and weathered green slaughterhouse delivery truck, labelled Farm Fresh Meats, crammed with 60 cuddly soft toys on the road to a (sic) death. The collection of stuffed animals are accompanied by a variety of screams and squeals playing in the background as they stick their heads and snouts through the slits in their mobile prison.

Let the Donald Trump bashing begin – #Mexican artisan launches #piñata #donaldtrump [#geekgirl]

Donald Trump piñata

Artist Dalton Javier Avalos Ramirez created a piñata of Donald Trump for fellow Mexicans to take their frustrations out on.

Mr “Piñateria” Ramirez told The Independent that he created Mr Trump’s paper-mâché and cardboard look-a-like in one day and was inspired by his controversial presidential campaign announcement speech.

“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime,” Mr Trump said in at Trump Tower in New York City. “They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

The craftsman, from Reynosa in Mexico’s Tamaulipas state, said that the piñatas provide an outlet for Mexicans to vent their frustrations at Mr Trump’s controversial portrayal of Mexicans.

“It was a way of expressing disagreement of what he said about us Mexicans,” the artist said. “Donald Trump should not promote racism against Mexicans or Latinos in America.”
