Hold on to your Sombreros: Cinco de Mayo 2019 Has Begun!

I don’t care who you are. Don’t do this to your puppy 😦

No matter how many bizarre holidays Americans come up with, Cinco de Mayo will forever be my favorite. And not only because it’s an excuse to drink all day and yell ¡Viva México! while thinking it’s our celebration of Independence (it’s not) but because it is also the time of year that brings out the stupidest most creative marketing brains to sell Americans everything, from DIY printable fiesta kits and taquito shooters (whatever that is,) to senseless drink mixes, “ethnic food” and even life-size cardboard Mexicans as scene setters.

Etsy T-shirts, anyone?

Nacho de Mayo, because why not?

This time around, though, in honor of that amazing marketing tool known as Twitter, I’ve put together a few tweets making their way to my timeline. This has only begun, so, please help me by tweeting me your own personal horrors for 2019 Cinco de Mayo, preferably using the #CincoDeFallo hashtag and let the “Mexican” madness begin!
