No habla jibber jabber

Mexis in truckWell, The Vest sat down to watch a little MNF. Its been a few years since I saw anyone toss the old pigskin around. Now The Vest knows that TV isn’t free, and that ads have to be shown in order to bring amazing Technicolor into our homes. However, The Vest was puzzled by the first ad I had seen in about 50 years. An ad showing a fine looking truck came on, but the stereophonic audio assailing The Vest’s ears (yes, The Vest has ears) was in some sort of jibber jabber. Now The Vest knows that I’m in the US, and that Americans speak English.

Confused, The Vest remembered hearing some migrant workers on the set speaking the same kind of jibber jabber. Thinking back, The Vest recalled that the workers said they were from Mexico.  Now why would there be Mexican jibber jabber advertisements shown on good ole US of A television?  Well, The Vest could only assume that while in storage, the US had went to war with Mexico and lost.  Using my high speed internet connection, The Vest quickly did some research to get the details of the most recent Spanish-American war.  Unfortunately, there was no record of a war with Mexico.  There were records of wars with Korea, some place called Viet Nam, Iraq, Drugs and Terror (never heard of those last two places).  But nothing about Mexico.

When The Vest was last in the public eye, Americans spoke English.  The good ole US of A was happy to take immigrants, but those immigrants were quick to embrace and assimilate the American culture.  After all, they were coming to America for a better life.  So, logically, if someone moves from their home to another place to improve their lot in life, they would surely want to assimilate and blend in with their adopted home.  The Vest is thoroughly confused as to why there is jibber jabber being broadcast on good ole American TV stations.

The Vest will do a little more research and get back with the readers.
