It’s Cinco de Mayo on Friday and that can only mean one thing! Mexican stuff! Everywhere! For something that I don’t even know anything about! Brilliant!
Considering Mexican food and drink is probably the best ever, tomorrow should be the perfect excuse to get tanked up on booze and shovel a bin-bag full of chimichangas down your neck and not feel guilty at Slimming World on Thursday.
I’ve done a quick Google search and Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the Mexican Army’s victory over French forces about 200 years ago. Since then the date has been picked up in the States as the perfect opportunity to celebrate the diverse aspects of Mexican-American culture and the impact it has on everyday life in the country – especially in California and the South.
As a result, this year’s Cinco de Mayo will have a particularly meaningful impact insofar that many Americans agreed to shun this Tex-Mex utopia and voted in leather-faced Oompa Loompa Donald Trump into office who has promised to build a massive wall between the two countries. Dick head.
To celebrate the day, and their hatred for President Trump, those pizza making mental-cases over at Crazy Pedro’s have designed a brand new t-shirt – featuring the Orange One getting the shit kicked out of him with everyone’s favourite meal – pizza.
They’ll be offering this brilliant t-shirt for half price tomorrow! Nice. So get on down to Pedro’s and get sloshed to buggery on Mezcal while scoffing one of their brilliant slices (Surf and Turf special perhaps?).
