Some Humor for Tuesday!

IMG_0801[1]Happy Cinco de Mayo . . . and now, for those of you who enjoy a good play on words or pun (okay, so there’s no such thing) this should be right up your alley.  Enjoy!  Seriously though, contrary to an oft mistaken belief, today does NOT mark Mexico’s Independence Day (celebrated on September 16); rather today represents the Celebration of the Mexican victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  This battle was significant for two reasons: 1) the Mexican army was outnumbered two-to-one by a more well-equipped French Army, and 2) it was the last time any country in the Americas had been invaded by any other European military force.
