Happy Cinco de Mayo

Just wanted to say Happy Indie day to all you Mexicans out there. Raise your flags proudly and bump that tuba beat (you know what I'm talking about) as you display your patriotism and pride on this great day in which you gained your Independence.

Yeah, it's celebrating a victory over the French army.

The Germans call that Tuesday.

Cinco de Mayo is a beer company holiday. In Mexico, other than tourist locations, the Mexicans don't pay any attention to it.

I believe the italics and sarcasm smiley imply that he knows this and was mocking the bulk of America. Of course, maybe that's not allowed either on the board

Don't drink a corona today, please.

thank you for recognizing the sarcasm. Now this thread is useless. Hopefully Metro saw it before the title was made PC.

True, I was in Mexico a few years ago and the Cab driver was saying how he thought it was silly they make such a big deal about it in America.

Cabrón, your OP is still wrong. Mexico gained its independence on September 16, 1810. The ass whuppin' those cheese-eating surrender monkeys suffered occurred on May 5, 1862.
