I feel an urge to go ring a bell.

Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores in 1810, which initiated the war of Mexican independence from Spain.[1][9] Cinco de Mayo has been referenced and featured in entertainment media, and has become an increasingly global celebration of Mexican culture, cuisine, and heritage.

Yeah, that was the joke.

Gotta remember your audience.

Best fireworks on that night.

As FYI for those that don’t know, the celebrations have already happened. It is customary on the big holidays to celebrate at Midnight the night before. For independence day there are big gatherings and “the shout” of Viva Mexico. And a lot of fireworks. It’s awesome.

Yeah, I’m not doing all that work.

I’ve asked for a font color button, to no avail.

One day we will invent Americanese

Not according to one of my British friends in grad school.

To be fair, he was a little sensitive on the topic after he was criticized by students on his teaching evaluations for his poor pronunciation of English.
