EngineerAU: God-is-a-Taco: We care about the opinions of Mexicans now?

We have ever since their culture became a source of additional holidays to sell beer and stuff. Remember once upon a time the Irish were considered lower than slaves. Then we discovered they had a holiday we could use as an excuse to get drunk and piss behind a dumpster and suddenly being Irish was a good thing. That's why Muslims aren't likely to ever be fully accepted in American culture... they don't have a drinking holiday.

While they're fighting over the more popular holidays, I'm going to quietly copyright Arbor Day.

I always get a kick about asking right-wing anti-immigration rednecks why they're loading up on Corona & tequila for Cinqo de Mayo.

Aquapope: Are they releasing a movie named Day of the Dead, and are covering their bases for its release south of the border as Dia de los Meurtos?  If so, George Romero and the production company for Dawn of the Dead should should sue Disney for trademark infringement for making a movie with too similar of a title. After all, it's not a stretch, entirely likely in fact, that people with think the Disney movie is a sequel to Dawn of the Dead.


You can't copyright a movie title. Which is why multiple films have the same name.
