CINCO DE MAYO REDUX
Raven is making a mess with his toast this morning.
What's with the slob act, Rave?

But Rave, according to my watch it's June 18th.
"Not in the soccer-psychotic world of Mexico. The 2-zip win against France yesterday was the first time Mexico's gotten one up since Cinco de Mayo and the Battle of Puebla."
Actually, Rave, I think Juarez having Maximilian shot by a firing squad was AFTER the Battle of Puebla.
"I dunno. After all, we are living in a country whose pre-Hispanic past--in fact whose past previous to 1900 doesn't exist. According to the Secretary of Public Education, anyway. If they had their way, Mexico's history would start in 2000--when Fox the Fatuous Fuckhead was elected."
Must be why they are having such a hard time putting together the two hundred years of independence, one hundred years of revolution celebration.
"Fuck yes--they even hired a gringo publicity firm to put it together--to the tune of millions...."
