“I’m not above using obscure Mexican battles to justify my drinking” (Cinco de Mayo joke)

"I’m not above using obscure Mexican battles to justify my drinking” is a Cinco de Mayo joke that has been printed on an ecard. The ecard has been in print since at least May 3, 2008, and the joke was posted on Twitter on May 4, 2008.


Wikipedia: Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo (pronounced [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo]; Spanish for “Fifth of May") is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico. In the U.S. the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture.
