So its a week early. Next Wednesday marks everyone's favorite holiday (and birthday)...Cinco De Mayo. Just like all American celebrations, no one cares to figure out why they are celebrating so long as there is plenty of booze and stupid music to bop around to. I have been dually celebrating this day for what will be 22 years, and not one of them did I have any idea why.

The holiday commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
Similar to St. Patrick's Day or the Chinese New Year, Cinco De Mayo Cinco de Mayo is observed by many Americans regardless of ethnic origin. I mean cmon, throw on a sombraro and grab a case of Dos Equis and you're just like the rest of em'.

So, basically, after researching the crap out of the holiday....all I got was information on this battle from like 200 years ago(boring!). I decided to find some funny information on Mexico/Mexicans to spice up this post. Here goes:

Q: What do you call a Mexican on a riding lawnmower?
A: Promoted

Q: What do you call a Mexican baptism?
A: Bean Dip

Q: What do you call a midget Mexican?
A: Paragraph (He's too short to be an essay)

What is Mexican Poop??

108 Million people live in Mexico.
The second largest factor of the Mexican economy is American money being sent back.
Mexicans love to sleep (siesta)

Way down, South of the border
Way down, Mexico way
They’re having a big celebration
It’s on the 5th of May.

You can hear the castanets, they’re playing.
You can hear maracas keep the beat.
You can hear the guitars wildly playing.
You can watch them dancing in the street.

Oh, Cinco de Mayo.
It’s a Mexican holiday.
Oh, Cinco de Mayo.
It’s the 5th of May.
