"Veracruz, Invasion, Sliced Ratoncito"

Ever wondered about Speedy Gonzales's cool outfit? How exotic, how cool, how "Veracruz-ish." 

The mystery and wonder go away when you recall U.S. incursions into Mexico in the 20th century--in particular, the 1914 invsion. This print commemorates that event, echoing the arguments to be found in Nericcio's Tex{t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the "Mexican" in America.
