The taste test
Here we have two samples of red blood:
The blood of a Mexican migrant worker
Who has been picking strawberries in the San Bernardino Valley for seven years,
And here we have the blood of a Caucasian Distribution Manager from Silicon Valley.
And here is Mindy, a self-employed career-coach from LA,
To tell us which sample of blood is the most red-blooded.

Ok, Mindy, remove the covers on samples, 1 and 2.
Mindy: Oh, my God!
Tell the audience what you see Mindy.
Which sample was the most red-blooded?
Mindy: It was the illegal Mexican migrant worker who picks
For our smoothies!!
Well, that's our show, ladies and gentlemen.
Next week, we rate accents to see who speaks real American:
A plumber from Ohio or a construction worker from Minneapolis?
Until then . . .
