Over the weekend, U.S. and Mexican authorities arrested one of the most dangerous drug kingpins in the world, Joaquin Guzman Loera. His is said to be responsible for the deaths of more Americans than Osama bin Laden; he's been a wanted man for more than 13 years; and he is the mastermind behind the all-powerful Sinaloa drug cartel. So, what part of this steamy and intriguing story do the late-night comics focus on? The fact that his nickname, "El Chapo," translates to shorty ... or is it corn porridge?

One late-night comic introduces us to the other members of the Chapo cartel (all with appropriately inappropriate nicknames related to food stuffs). Another focuses on El Chapo's stature. Does his arrest mean that the cartel will topple and America's drug woes will slowly come to an end? Take a look at this webisode of Punchlines to see what one comic has to say about that.
