Por supuesto. And with your generous offer, I think Mexicans can finally get over their hatred of the proposed U.S.-Mexico border muro. Let's wall those gabachos in, compañeros. Let's deny them our cheap labor and chalupas and Canada's affordable medicine. You betcha gabachos would make more incursions across both of our fences than a Sidney Crosby-shot hockey puck past a goalie.
There was a sports controversy in Australia (because here, sports rates above the drought). Cricket authorities banned the Mexican Wave (what Americans call "the Wave") from major sporting events because, apparently, fans would get hit by any stray object flying out of people's hands during said Wave. I know the Wave first received international notice during the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico, but Wikipedia says it might've been created in Vancouver for a marketing campaign for a soccer team called the Whitecaps. So, wouldn't it be called the Canadian Wave? Because Wikipedia says the Commonwealth refer to it as the Mexican Wave. At least, that's how I read it.
Confused and Nasally Congested
Finally, the Mexican has found a dumber race than Guatemalans! Relying on Wikipedia for your information is like relying on a Mexican to handle immigration policy. No one knows the true origins of the Wave, except that Mexico didn't create the crowd-stretcher — the earliest reference I could find for it in the Nexis database was a June 1, 1986 Toronto Star dispatch from that year's World Cup calling the Mexican wave an "odious North American import." As to why the English-speaking world except the United States refers to this sporting phenomenon as the Mexican Wave . . . Do I really have to answer that pregunta?
Being from Canada, most of our Mexican knowledge comes to us second-hand through the U.S. media. What we always hear about are the jobs that are refused by Americans, yet sought (or endured) by Mexicans. But are there any jobs Mexicans won't touch, whether for cultural reasons or others? What jobs do Mexicans take that other Mexicans look down on them for?
