La Cucaracha -- Cinco de Mayo

{ 0 comments }

maydaybigEnjoy the Internacional, the world-wide (Get it? It’s international!) anthem of those red commie cabrones in Cuba and Venezuela and China and North Korea (and lurking in secretive Sanders cells here in the Homeland but the lamestream media sheeple won’t tell you that).
