  1. ” He points out that the Mexican section consists of Mexican beer and 9 packs of cheese”

    Que la fregada Al! The reverse of those store items would be the famous “A six pack of beer and a taco”,
    The legendary Mexican 7 course meal, of course!

  2. But they left out the obligatory South/Midwest image of a sleeping, sombrero-clad Mexican taking a siesta against a cactus! How will anyone be able to find the salsa without it?

  3. I think the worst “Mexican” restaurant I ever ate at was in London. I should have know I was in for trouble when the waitress couldn’t pronounce most of the things on the menu…
