The holiday means more in the US and on the border of Mexico than it does in the interior. But most people don't really understand the significance of it. It's basically the Mexican equivalent of the Boston Tea Party.

It celebrates the day May 5, 1862, when a group of Mexicans swam underwater to a French ship in Veracruz harbor. The ship was carrying a load of salad dressing. These intrepid fellows drilled hundreds of holes in the bottom of the ship, causing it to slowly descend to the bottom of the harbor. Hence the name of the holiday, "Sink-o de Mayo."

MarcoM, who told me this story, swears it is true.

The really sad part is that for a few seconds there I thought Bill was actually passing on an interesting bit of history. Shame on me.

One of the regents of Rice University up until last year was Dr. Camacho, a gentleman of Mexican-American descent, and a truly fine scholar as well as a really fun fellow. He fell for this one hook, line and cinco.

Hey listen, you take your opportunities to drink where you can find them!
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

Har! har! That's good!
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.
