Things Where Mexico Has the #1 Place

Hello, there. Welcome to my first MyTake after 4 years.

Today we'll talk about CATEGORIES IN WHICH MY COUNTRY RANKS # 1

We'll go through those prideful first-place rankings and also those shameful ones.

Things Where Mexico Has the #1 Place

1. Mexico occupies the # 1 place in Spanish. We are the most populated Spanish speaking country worldwide. (And third most populated in America, after the US and Brazil).

Shameful. So so heartbreaking. This made me so ashamed. What a pity that we have so much potential but that we have this horrible first place.

  • I liked this actually. It gives you credit, that you clearly refrained from being biased and took the sour with the sweets.
    1/5 beers come from Mexico? I didn't know that, but I do know, that Dutch brewery "Heineken" is the second largest brewery in the world and Danish brewery "Carlsberg" is the fourth biggest. But when you look at the numbers for beer production worldwide, neither Netherlands or Denmark is close to the top.

    So you see, because of reading this, I not only learned initially, but I even learned further down the road, because it made me wonder and I had to dig around for the numbers.

    All because of you - not bad at all!! :) haha.

    The numbers in question, by the way:
    (only included significant ones)

    Rank Country Tonnes (Metric Tons)
    1 China, mainland 49,219,000
    2 United States of America 22,600,000
    3 Brazil 14,000,000
    4 Germany 8,723,136
    5 Mexico 8,588,180
    6 United Kingdom 4,120,400
    13 Netherlands 2,369,600
    38 Denmark 610,700

  • I know you and I have discussed extensively about this topic, but it is hilarious the number of Mexican descent people in the United States of America that act as if getting sent back to México is a life-ruining punishment. They're all Mexican pride and proud of their Spanish speaking skills around gringos, but dread the idea of returning to or living in México.
    Oh no, you might spend 1/4 the amount of money on dental care as you would in the USA, and now have consistently warm weather, how terrible.
    I wouldn't even mind living in México for work if I didn't have family I am tied to here.

      Yeah, I know this. I really hate those mexicans.

      And believe me when I say many of us dislike them. They’re probably more racist than you guys.

      You’re welcome anytime you’d like to come. Let me know and I’ll make sure you get a good deal. I am in Playa del Carmen with my husband now.

  • Why do you have two (2) #6s? Anyway #2 & the first #6 are definitely nothing to be proud of.

  • Wow, Mexico is such an interesting country, and you have fantastic food 😋
    I thought that Mexico has the 1st place in Cocoa production too, cause the Mayans, Olmecs and Aztecs were the first ones who started making hot chocolate 🍫☕️

  • Great Take Amy, I love avocado, guacamole is one of my favorite dips ;)
    I think Mexico's capital is also famous for being the city with most museums and art galleries in the word.
    Mexico City also has the largest taxi-cab fleet in the world.

  • You guys also have the most museums in the world.
    I think you should've posted more negative ones to balance it, but still a good take.

    You're proud of the fact that 11 million people fled your country?
    I'm not trying to insult you or be aggressive.. but I really don't think that's a good thing.

      I don’t understand why people don’t get it...

      I mean, if you read carefully I said “good and shameful things”.

      I’m definitely not proud. Did you understand the meme? The meme is pretty much an insult to these Mexicans living there.

      I’ve never been outside Mexico and if I were to leave this country, I’d do it legally.
