100 pesos and a donkey

Pull Up

Urban legend has it that Alfredo Gonzales won 100 pesos and a donkey in a drinking contest – which was enough to get him to New York to start a new life.  He landed a job in a sock factory and as soon as the Mexican started customizing the factory socks with little buttons he found on the street, he found himself to be something of a sensation.
