Saying Happy Cinco De Mayo Can Get You Arrested In Arizona

Pin it

A new political ad attacking Sen. John McCain makes a pretty valid point: under the states new immigration law, wishing a buddy, "Happy Cinco de Mayo," could get you arrested. After all, you’d be speaking Spanish – which is reasonable suspicion that you’re an alien.


I wonder whether Corona and Tecate ought to add to their warning labels:

GOVERNMENT WARNING: (1) According to the Surgeon general, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects. (2) Consumption of alcoholic beverages impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems. (3) Consumption of Mexican beer may lead racial profiling, arrest, and even deportation.

But that’s depressing. This is hilarious. Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone.
