Today, millions of gabachos and Mexicans alike will celebrate Cinco de Mayo in grand borracho fashion. I have written in the past about why I think May 5 is a bullshit Mexican holiday. But, hey: if people want to celebrate a bullshit holiday, Chicano yaktivists should just give it to the ultimate bullshitters when it comes to Mexican culture: gabachos!

This marks the return of my weekly ¡Ask a Mexican! video columns, which I used to do in 2008 and stopped for reasons you'll find out in the video. Enjoy!
