Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, and it couldn’t come at a better time. Finals are in progress (so you definitely need a study break) and for seniors, graduation is right around the corner, which means it’s time to party. Cinco de Mayo parties to college students mean two things: 1) tons of cheap tequila, and 2) borderline ridiculous amounts of tortilla chips. Salsa, too, if you’re not broke. And with cheap tequila comes shenanigans.

There’s only one thing that compares to that Tostitos and wannabe Patron-fueled ridiculousness every college kids experiences on Cinco de Mayo, and that is Arrested Development. Break out the guacamole and the shot glasses, because it’s about to be Cinco de Cuatro up in here. The Bluth family are the only ones who really understand you anyway…

You realize Cinco de Cuatro Mayo is coming up, and you’re ready to have a little fun…

At first, you decide to pretend it didn’t happen.

And all you’re left with is pangs of guilt, embarrassment, and nausea.
