Cinco de Mayo, monkey style! Queso, guacamole and nachos, and fun ways to celebrate the Mexican holiday with your favorite terrycloth primate. Also, a little dueling Kahlo haiku for good measure. Viva de Cinco de Mayo!! Ay yiy yiy!!

Cinco De Mayo
Lemon wedge thwarts my parched mouth
I need a chopstick

No margaritas
Cannot find mix for drinking
Not a drunk monkey

I happened to be in Puerto Vallarta for Cinco de Mayo a few years back. We were in Chico's dive getting stuff set up for some Scuba diving, and we asked the gal there what was going on for Cinco de Mayo. She said "what? We don't celebrate that here." We told her it was a big deal in America. She just said "oh", and shrugged her shoulders. Sigh, another myth exposed....

Exactly, E-cat. I could not fathom what this person (see above) was talking about. As if they had some obligation toward a holiday apparently invented by the lime and Corona lobbies.

It celebrates a victory in Puebla by the Mexicans over the French. I'm currently in Guanajuato and the "Dia de los Ninos" a couple days earlier was a much bigger deal.
