When You're Down and Troubled, and You Need a Helping Hand

Mexico has a friend in Jennifer Aniston.

JENNIFER ANISTON chose to celebrate her 41st birthday in Mexico to help boost the country's tourism industry.

.. Aniston has revealed she chose the destination to help encourage others to return to Mexico for holidays following the recent swine flu outbreak, which crippled the country last year.

She tells Access Hollywood she arranged the trip after a male friend suggested it to her: "He said to me, 'You come to Mexico all the time and Mexico is really hurting right now because of the swine flu and the drug trafficking and all of this sort of stuff but it’s not all of Mexico.' These people survive on us coming down and spending money and coming here to these beautiful places. It sort of made sense to sort of say ‘Hey, let’s help out Mexico.' Let’s shout out to these kids in Tijuana at El Faro. That’s sort of our birthday celebration this year.”

So suck on that, Angelina Jolie and Haiti.

Of course, without swine flu and drug trafficking it would be really hard to fill up a blog, so here's a big muchas gracias to Jen and the stalkerazzi for serving up a little birthday pay de queso from Cabo San Lucas. She really is helping us through this difficult time.

What is funny, Burro, is that it's true. She always comes to Cabo San Lucas. She was there right after New Year and now again, but she always goes there a few times a year, and she always sports the same bathing suit! Always the same purple one! she must be really attached to it.
