cinco de mayo
POCHO sent reporters to bars and parties, barbecues and parades all across the United Estates to find out how Americans were celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Here’s what they said:
- CLYDE WORKMAN, DETROIT: I’m squeezing limes into my 40′s
- TAD BROGET, PRINCETON: Naturally, one had one’s valet bring a snifter of proper reposado
- PANAMA RED, DENVER: A dank day for primo Oaxacan, meng! [Coughs.] [Mas…]
Former President George W. Bush knows what’s good about Cinco de Mayo — and he explains it in his own special way.
White folks in sombreros and serapes. Spanglish beer commercials every few minutes. Yup, pretty ridiculous, señor.
I agree with most of my friend Gustavo Arellano’s Cinco de Mayo video rant, mas o menos.

Through the process of cabron-dating, which involves reading the label on the bottle, it was confirmed the absinthe was from the Napoleonic Era. [Mas…]
