Subject: BAD Mayonaise
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....
