5. Anyone who cares about the real meaning of Cinco de Mayo. Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! This most-important Mexican holiday celebrates Mexican national independence from watery margaritas as well as the international human right to stuff your face with nachos! Many years ago, during the Battle of Puebla, the Mexican army defeated French forces by replacing all of their water with Corona in the middle of the night. The French couldn't tell the difference, so they accidentally got wasted, and everyone spent the night wearing sombreros and vomiting up chicken fajitas behind the bar. And that is why we still celebrate Cinco de Mayo today, at least according to most Americans celebrating the holiday. —SRD
