What is Cinco de Mayo?

For those who are genuinely curious about what Cinco de Mayo is, I'll explain briefly.  It's an American drinking holiday.  It's not Mexican independence day.  In 1962, the Mexican army defeated the French at the Battle of Puebla.  That's all Cinco de Mayo commemorates, and it's a minor holiday in Mexico.
