Story Number Five from the Mexican Ambassadors

How much of this story is stereotyped?  How much is accurate?

One day, an overly large Mexican man was walking on the street eating.  His name was Carlos.  Carlos then put on his sombrero and pulled out his maracas.  He then began to sing a Mariachi song.  He was singing when a mouse, wearing a sombrero, began running around him, shouting, “Andale, Andale!  Arriba!  Arriba!”  Carlos soon became angry at the mouse and tried squishing the mouse with his foot.  They ran around the city but the mouse was too fast for Carlos.  He soon became tired of chasing the mouse and quickly went to a burrito stand.  He bought three of the biggest burritos ever.  Each burrito had Tabasco sauce on it and he ate all of them in less than 5 seconds.  Carlos went to the washroom and saw that he had Tabasco sauce all over his big mustache.  He had to wash it all off his mouth and moustache.  Later he fell asleep on a bench and then he woke up with the mouse staring at him.  They decided to have a gun fight.  They took 5 steps away from each other until they both turned around and Carlos got a hit and killed the mouse.  Carlos went home happy and he then again began to sing another Mariachi song.  Carlos finally went home and was greeted by his many brothers and sisters.  They had a fiesta with burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, and enchiladas.  Carlos went to sleep with a full stomach.

  1. Hello, we are second graders and we read your story. We think that there are so much stereotypes because we don't solve problems with guns and we don't eat so much either, but the story is very funny. We like Speedy Gonzalez (the mouse) and we have a lot sense of humor.
    See you soon, we are waiting for you!
