We Should Invent a Mexican-Themed Holiday
to Celebrate on the Fifth of May


Cinco de Mayo is a time to celebrate all things Mexicali…which apparently we Americans think is limited to getting shitfaced off tequila at unauthentic Mexican chain-restaurants.

So as we Americans celebrate this joyous holiday that we know absolutely nothing about, it is good to see a group of Mexicans joyously embracing an American past-time: poker.

Check out this youtube video and watch as bedlam ensues at a Mexican poker game.  And Happy 5th of May to you all!

*Editor’s Note: The people in this video may not actually be Mexican.  They could be Italian or Arab.  It is so very difficult to tell these days.  Now you know what airport screeners have to deal with…

    Andrew. The addict and I are just checking in our hotel in vegas. Our apologies if indeed this is a shit ass video. Can’t view on the blackberry. Chops left alone though is a dangerous thing and he alone is to blame. Let’s just see what he does with this weeks parting shot.

    You mean there’s actually a holiday that gives gringos an excuse to go get shitfaced at local (local chain that is, same menu everywhere, all across the country), authentic (authentic American-Mexican food), restaurants? I usually call that holiday “Friday”.
