Hey I know who Xuxa and Pele are...I'm nowhere near Brasil :-D
What about that second list of personalities? "You know who Os Trapalhoes, Turma da Monica, Zico, Caetano Veloso, Tom Jobim" etc?
Ehh.....*checks memory* No...I don't think I've heard of those I'm afraid lol :-D

I hope I get points for Xuxa though! I used to watch her on one of the Spanish stations here in town....I don't think her show is on there anymore though, I think its only on satellite or cable now.
Her show's changed so much over the years... It sucks now.
Awww boo! I loved her singing and people throwing shaving cream filled balloons around and stuff....all sorts of big gloopy games.
Hehehe. those *were* fun... None of that anymore... *sigh*
You are so used to corruption that nothing surprises you anymore.

Either Brazilian, or into politics there.
Hehehe
But what about Max Calaveras? You gotta know who he is too...
I googled that name, hadn't ever heard of him before. Seems that he's mexican...
