I laughed at the joke. My half-Mexican wife at it. She did point out that they should have included a pregnant Mexican woman jumping the fence. Anchor babies and all that

Ima4nic8or: People are getting way too sensitive.  First off, Cinco de Mayo isn't even a Mexican holiday.  Mutating its name into drinko de Mayo therefore cannot be racially insensitive to Mexicans.  I would also note that Mexican is not a race but nationality. Lasty, if you can't make fun of criminals who break into our country who can you make fun of?


Dude stop referring to them as 'Mexicans'. Mexican is a racial slur. The proper term is Latino.

UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi told the newspaper she believed that adding a mandatory diversity course could prevent future controversies like this one.

UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi should be prepared for everyone to show up to that course wearing a sombrero and poncho...

OtherLittleGuy: RTOGUY: I think the comparison to St.Patrick's day is very apt. Why is it okay for everyone to get shiat faced to be "Irish" for the day but poking fun at Mexicans hopping a fence is out of bounds? Which is a more hurtful stereotype when you consider that the U.S does have a serious problem of Mexicans hopping the border illegally? Now that said anybody on a university campus should have known this wouldn't go over well.

Cultural Insensitivity: No Irish Need Apply.


My English and Viking ancestors did their best to eliminate the Irish problem.  Obviously, we didn't try hard enough or got sidetracked by trying to take over France.  Sorry, our bad.

That's it?  Seriously, that's what's getting people upset?  OMG, I was 10 times worse than that in college, sober.  I suggested to a street pastor that if he really wanted to imitate the early Christians he could go to the zoo and jump into the lion pen.  I screamed "INS" at a bunch of day laborers as I drove by once and just so they would scatter (which they didn't, more's the pity).  I suggested to a group of lesbians that if they would let me fark them, I'd turn them straight, during a rally.  Its probably a good thing I can't remember what I did drunk.  Jesus titty farking Christ, people, loosen up.  Someone put the PC police back in their cage.

"Chican@/Latin@ " -- DAFUQ?  When did this abomination start?

Admittedly, I'm more of a spic than a wetback, but I think we're forgetting the bigger picture: today is May the Fourth Be With You, so I vote we all just make a sink-o full of margarit-os and get drunk-o for the next two day-os.

// Now, nobody start singing the Banana Boat Song, because that would distract us from our outrage.

Chabash: Ima4nic8or: K3rmy: Hmm. . .people making fun of a current hot topic.  Though done in jest, at least it addresses it.  It is not getting swept under the rug.  Other people whine because it is insensitive.

Put on your big boy bragas and stop acting like a little puto. Rather than have a sit in at the coffee shop and chant slogans you can form study groups and impromptu think tanks to come with possible ideas to possible move towards a resolution.

But of course this won't happen.  Obama was partially correct with the "Yes We Can" slogan.  He just did not state the second part "But We Won't".

Or they could, you know, go study whatever there are supposedly there to study.  I know its a novel idea but hear me out on this one.  Sitting in the coffee shop shouting slogans in protest of an insignificant issue isn't going to help any of them pass that upcoming calculus or chemistry test they are worried about.

What makes you think the protesters are majoring in something that requires either of those subjects?


I just picked two random subjects that I guess I was familiar with but you are right, the protestors are the type that are probably majoring in underwater basket weaving, leisure studies or 12th century feminism.  I suppose it is good then that they are protesting at the coffee house since that is where they will be spending much of their careers.

I think the main issue is, we're not still getting boats of Irish showing up.


That shows how lazy the Irish are. Probably drunk, too, the shamrock-wearers. "Aye, I could be building a boat, but the room is spinning and I need me a wee bit more tipple."

Cinco De Mayo was invented in California, so we can do whatever the hell we want with it.

Lazy Mexicans, stealing America's ideas.  Get your own damn holidays.

(Yes I know latinos came up with it, but they were employed by Americans in California at the time.  It's called "work for hire", look it up.)
