Mexico's Liquid Lunches Make the Endangered List

Tequila-fueled lunches on their way out

As sacred a tradition as a wedding piñata, lunches that stretched out for entire afternoons were a way of life in Mexico, followed by the glorious siesta, of course.

The boozy lunch is out of vogue though and is being replaced by a power breakfast, according to Reuters. Some people think it's another sign of US influence in Mexico, but here's a thought - maybe it's just smart thinking.

I'm betting people aren't downing 3 beers with their eggs and sausage. Call me crazy, but that might reduce alcohol-related car accidents. If you've ever driven in Mexico, you'll agree it's akin to flying on an airplane that's never passed a safety test.

Some staunch supporters of the liquid lunch argue fast food will replace sit-down restaurants, which in turn will ramp up soaring obesity rates in Mexico.

Yes! It's my shorter, booze-free lunch making me fat.

Let's hear it for tequila-powered lunches and skinny thighs!
