Happy Totally Chipotle Day!

Today is May 5th - and you know what that means. No, I'm not talking about Cinco de Mayo, I'm talking about Totally Chipotle Day.

So instead of a bunch of white people sitting around getting hammered to "celebrate" Cinco de Mayo even though they don't know what the day signifies,* people can spend all day covering their food with delicious smoked pepper sauce and THEN get hammered on Coronas after work**. That should make for a pleasant Thursday around the office.

And while not directly related to the Chipotle fast food chain, it is easy to see how many people, like the Syracuse men's basketball team, could easily misconstrue the true meaning of the day and head out for a 1,000 calorie burrito. Give then fact that this chain has had a highly deleterious effect on the team in the past, I think we can all agree that it's a good thing this glorious day is being celebrated well after the conclusion of the season.

* Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day' but it is an excuse to drink
** This will totally be me
