Subject: [CHAT] OT/Cinco de Mayo

It seems that New York is having a big Cinco de Mayo celebration this
weekend.  Puerto Rico day has been huge for years, but I don't remember
this one before - ironic that the city is also undergoing a panic attack
Swine flu among those who took spring break in Mexico.  Anyway, I expect
you guys already know this, but thought I'd pass the information on

Most people don't know that back in 1912 Hellman's mayonnaise was
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 New York City.
Mexicans were crazy about the stuff.
The Mexican people were eagerly awaiting delivery and were disconsolate
("desperados") at the loss. So much so that they declared a national day of
which they still observe today. It is known, of course, as...
Sinko de Mayo
