Since this came up again recently, here’s a golden oldie. Art Dystopia is a freebie font that emulates the look of black and death metal logos (see Mike Rampton’s article for Kerrang! and also the Black Metal Logo Database). It was made in February 2015 by artist and amateur font maker Art Dystopia. Someone thought it was a good choice for a stand of Mexican food – possibly to indicate that their dishes come flaming hot?

In June 2018, a photo was posted on Don Mamastroso’s Tumblr, captioned “No sé si pedir mi gordita con salsa verde o con la sangre de mis enemigos” (Dunno whether to order my gordita with green salsa or with the blood of my enemies.”). It was further popularized in September 2021 by Twitter user @buddy_ferrara, here with the comment “what if we kissed at the death metal gorditas y quesadillas stand”. The rest is internet history, and now one can buy T-shirts, throw pillows (see below) and other merch exploiting this meme.
