IT guy, Hoboken:
"I celebrated by drinking tequila, eating chalupa, dancing the samba, and masturbating to Salma."
Gregg (Greg's friend), 30
IT guy, Jersey City:
"I too drank tequila and ate chalupas with my buddy Greg. I didn't dance the samba, though, because I broke my foot trying to kick over a fire hydrant during Mardi Gras, which is French for Cinco de Mayo... which, in turn, is Spanish for St. Patty's day, right? Also, I didn't jack off to Salma Hayak, because I saw the commercial for "Frida" and it scared the shit out of me. Instead, I chose to observe this Cinco de Mayo by fantasizing about myself and Linda Lopez, J. Lo's newsreporting sister. "

George W. B., 56

Tommy N., 19
