*Hellmann's Mayonnaise - a bit of history. *

*Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was
manufactured in England . In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of
the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be
the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York . This
would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to
Mexico . But as we know, the great ship did not make it to  New York . The
ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost. The people of
Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its
delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that
they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this
day.  The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known,
of course, as -

Sinko De Mayo.

WHAT??? You expected something educational from me? You need a shot of
Tequila after that don't you?
