    If Baldo can’t tell who ate the cake with all that chocolate all over her mouth, he’s dumber than I thought.

    The first four panels vaguely tell the story of what happened on Cinco de Mayo in 1862, where the Mexicans defeated the French in the Battle of Puebla.
    It’s about as obscure as the 1814 battle in Baltimore where the Star Spangled Banner was written, but has been taken over by many in the United States who made it a drinking holiday.

    You’re so right, Ashburn. Which is why we shouldn’t have any more legal holidays in this country. They’re just an excuse for people to waste their money (and their lives) on alcohol.

    Yes, the Mexicans did indeed defeat the French. As did the English (something of a habit) and the Germans (ditto) and the Spanish and the Russians and the Haitians and the Algerians and the Vietnamese . . .

    I seem to recall the Napoleon won a few victories for France too.

    Who turned what into a “drinking holiday”? That’s a new one on me. Must be a geographic trend. And if you which to skip holidays, knock yourself out. I, and millions, welcome the opportunity to sleep in and spend the extra time with family. I guess you’re the type that kicks over nativity scenes and stomp on Easter eggs.

    Now who kicks over Nativity scenes and stomps on Easter eggs? No one, just your scurrilous fear and hate mongering.

    No, I’m the one that will pour out the bottles of every Johnny Walker, Canadian Club, Windsor Canadian or Mad Dog 20/20 down sewers, and break the bottles of any other 80 and 100 proof spirits until there are no more to celebrate with!

    And I agree with you on that!

    @Josh Lyons:
    Must be someone with a drinking problem in your life. Personally I feel there is nothing wrong with a glass of wine with dinner, a beer or two with a bbq, champagne on New Years Eve and mimosas in the morning, tequila on Cinco de Mayo or just a good cocktail to celebrate the end of a work day.

    slowoldcelt: If it weren’t for de Grasse, Lafayette, and enough money to bankrupt France, you would be singing “God Save the Queen”.
