Cinco de Mayo Larry

Larry says, "Let the party begin!" and is already celebrating Cinco deMayo, even if it is a few days early, because as everybody knows, Larry loves a party.  Even though Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory by the Mexican army over the French in the Battle of Puebla, it has become more of a celebration of Mexican heritage here in the States and is hardly celebrated at all in most of Mexico.  Just like a lot of people are Irish for a day on St. Patrick's Day, lots of people are Mexican for a day on Cinco de Mayo and much eating and drinking is to be had.
