Folks can say “Cinco De Mayo” all they want, but the fact of the matter is…Today is NOT Cinco de Mayo…
Anyone who’s anyone knows that today is…
Cinco de Mustache hasn’t been around for too long (I think it started in 1997), but Erin and I have only been excited about it for the last 2 or 3 years. So what’s the deal with this holiday? It’s just a day to celebrate the mustache. I do not have one, unfortunately, but many cool people do:
Once you get past the sexiness that is a good mustache, how does one celebrate Cinco de Mustache? Easy! You sport your stache (or at least show your appreciation of them), drink cheap beer and play lots of music!
Or at least that’s how it’s supposed to go…I decided to, instead, do laundry and cook dinner. Erin’s taking a bath. She’s having a Margarita when she’s out, and I’m having a not-cheap beer. I may play guitar, but probably not. Oh well, there’s always next year :-)
Here’s a nice little video that includes a group of folks singing along to the Cinco de Mustache song as made famous by Less Than Jake:
Aye Aye Aye Aye!
Cinco de Mustache!
The kids that are hip they grow hair on their lip!
They don’t have their razors! They don’t give a shit!
They grow and grow and grow!
So let your mustache show!
Enjoy today’s haiku:
It is 9:16
And I am ready for bed
Party pooper, much?
