    Talking A Little bit of Unknown History...

    A Little bit of Unknown 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.

    That's horrible!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I thought you were serious up until the first few lines. I saw it coming, but couldn't stop it.

    That belongs in Peabody's Improbable History.

    I'd laugh, but someone might find out what I'm laughing at and forever question my sense of humor.
