A molcajete (mo̞lkaˈxe̞te̞ or mol-cah-hay’-tay; Mexican Spanish, from Nahuatl molcaxitl)[needs IPA] is a stone tool, the traditional Mexican version of the mortar and pestle, similar to the South American batan, used for grinding various food product. The molcajete was used by pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican cultures, including the Aztec and Maya, stretching back several thousand years.

They are frequently decorated with the carved head of an animal on the outside edge of the bowl, giving the molcajete the appearance of a short, stout, three-legged animal.

Cattywampus is a word that I have grown up hearing in my house. To me it means messy, disorganized, and to say the least discombobulated. The etymology of a word does not always have to be symbolic; sometimes there is an actual historical story behind it.

Pátzcuaro: Pátzcuaro is a small colonial town located in the Mexico city of Michoacán. It is reported that the town was founded as early as 1320 AD and was the capital of the Tarasco people for about eighty years. After the death of Pátzcuaro's king, Tariácuri, the town became a member of a three-part alliance, also including Tzintzuntzan and Ihuatzio.
