Brittany Miller – A great-grandmother had a singular request for her grave: a 5½-foot-tall, nearly 600-pound penis statue. Catarina Orduña Pérez’s family erected the monument in “recognition of her love and joy for life,” according to Vice.
“She wanted to break the paradigm of everything Mexican, where things are sometimes hidden because of not having an open mind,” her grandson Álvaro Mota Limón told the outlet.
“She was always very avant-garde, very forward-thinking about things.”
Orduña Pérez, who died at the age of 99 on Jan. 20, 2021, was known in her small town of Misantla as Doña Cata for her fascination with penises. “She always said … that we were vergas,” said Mota Limón.
Vergas is a Mexican slang word that can mean three different things. There’s the usual English word that mean “c–k.” But it can also be an insult that means “Go screw yourself” or “You aren’t worth s–t.” The third way is actually a compliment, calling something cool. It just depends on how it’s phrased.
According to her grandson, the third way is how Doña Cata used the word.
She wanted her family to know that they were all vergas and could do anything they set their mind to, he said.
