Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo! yarbiedoll and I plan to celebrate by going to a Mexican restaurant for supper tonight. Even my employer passed along Cinco de Mayo wishes, as an email with the following blurb landed in my inbox this morning:
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's defeat of the French at Puebla, Mexico, 100 miles east of Mexico City on May 5, 1862. The event has come to symbolize Mexican unity and patriotism.
What's not to celebrate on a holiday that commerates the defeat of the French? It reminds me of a favorite Google parody: French military victories (be sure to click the alternate suggestion).
