While in Guerrero, Mexico a few months ago (October 2014), it was hot and we drank a lot of beer. Mostly Victoria (I prefer it to Corona). At the time they were running a marketing campaign called ‘Pretextos para Llevar’ which means something like ‘Excuses To Go’. Under each bottle cap was a saying which was a sort of ‘excuse’ for something, I am not sure what.
I must say I did not fully understand the jokes, some were obvious, but others not so much. Regardless, it was kind of a fun way to learn some more colloquial Spanish from Mexico, the kind of stuff you don’t learn in classes… I think the fact that I was raised 90% in English and learned most of my jokes/sayings/colloquialisms from Puerto-Rican culture has hindered my ability to get these sayings, but then again maybe they are just stupid!
I took some pictures of the bottle caps and they are below. Tell me which one is your favorite and why?
