Piñata Yadda Yadda: The History of the Piñata
In this episode of Ctrl-F (“Control-F”), Jeff Sarris and Amara Andrew celebrate National Piñata Day the only way they know how: by providing historical context to these hollow paper bodies of fun. Unlike their bodies, however, the history of piñatas is far from being hollow. Their history is as richly colored as their exteriors and as mysterious as the identity of the blindfolded attacker. Jeff and Amara explore the birthplace of piñatas which, as it turns out, may not be Mexico after all.

Little does anyone know, though, that the blondie and the brownie are caught up in a case of stolen identity. The blondie was backstabbed by the brownie in its infancy.
