Today’s Hideous Trans-Linguistic Pun

  • Teri

    Very Clever…unos, dos, tres…

  • Ken Jones

    Stop it.
    Just stop it.

  • Alfredo Escalona

    ………………..Ay, Chihuahua!

  • Faith Roberts

    Oh my gosh, that is soooo bad.

  • Marion (Mael Muire)

    I don’t understand! What can he mean?

  • Brad Harvey

    *facepalm* So clever and yet so bad.

  • Noah D

    Careful, you might end up accused of being ‘secretly Mexican’…

  • Jennifer Fitz

    Just got it – hehe. Many happy returns of the day.

  • Christian Ohnimus

    It took me an hour but by golly I figured it out.

  • S. Murphy

    Hmf. Now we see… How an illegal alien from County Mayo might have sympathy for illegal aliens from among the heretics who celebrate the 5th of May instead of the4th of July. Mm-hmn.

  • Marthe Lépine

    I still don’t get it, but it could be because I am from Canada and probably do not know enough about the history of illegal immigration in the US…

    • Cinlef

      As a fellow Canadian I’ll admit it took me a while until I remembered the date the 5th of May which is celebrated in Mexico under its Spanish name….

  • Hunk Hondo (C.H. Ross)

    Just got it. Ay Caramba!

  • Andy, Bad Person

    Ah, I see. Sink-o de Mayo. It’s a funny joke.

    As for you, Mr. Shea, do you condemn those poor individuals who slap mayonnaise on hamburgers? It’s disgusting, really, and something so disordered should never be condoned by someone I thought was an orthodox Catholic.

  • Cantorboy

    This sinks to new low.

    • Sherry

      Felt stupid for not getting it instantly when I did get it.

  • Jon W

    I like the idea that people in other countries put on tri-corner hats and drink a Sam Adams on July 4 for no more serious reason than to have another excuse to have a party, and a neighbor’s independence day is as good a reason as any. I don’t know if it happens, but I kind of hope it does.

  • Adolfo

    Cinco de Mayo does not celebrate Mexican independence. In fact, outside of the town of Puebla, Cinco de Mayo isn’t celebrated in Mexico at all. The town celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. The battle is significant b/c, while the Mexican army was outnumbered and out-gunned, the French–being French–went ahead and lost anyway.

  • Will

    Enough! By order of the Apostolic Punitentiary, you will be taken into custody until due and proper punance be accomplished.

  • Amy P.


    Mark, whatever are we going to do with you?

  • Billy Bean

    Shameless. Absolutely shameless. I Loved It!

  • ds

    All kidding aside, who was this “Chico de Mayo” guy anyway?

    • Mark Shea

      One of the Marx Brothers.

      • Marty Helgesen

        Yes, Karl’s twin brother, but that’s a secret, so don’t spread it around.

  • Marty Helgesen

    Because I am an evil person I showed that picture to a friend at work. She went away. Later she saw me again and, saying she was going back to an earlier occasion, asked, “On the Fourth, did anyone say to you, “May the Fourth be with you”? I immediately replied, “”No. You’re the Firth one.”

  • Carbon Monoxide

    Mayo de sinko? Doesn’t make any sense.
