¡Viva La Mexic0!

Today is Mexic@n Independ3nce Day. I am reminded of this because I live on the main drag of my city, and currently there are about a hundred cars and trucks with Mexican flags waving, driving up the street honking their horns. This is actually a much bigger deal in Mexico than Cinco de May0, which more people in the USA know about and celebrate. I attribute this to the fact that it arrives in September during football season, and that it doesn't have the date in the celebration name, which means Americans can't remember it.

I kinda wish the Norwegians would do that for Syttende Mai.

Carlos, elsewhere

They still have fun:

And then there is that rat game they play at the festival in North Dakota...
