It’s Sinko De Mayo

May 5th, 2011

In 1912 the Hellmann’s Mayonnaise Company shipped 12,000 jars from England to Vera Cruz, Mexico. On the first leg of the journey, it was cargo on the Titanic which sunk. This devastated Mexicans looking to zest up their rat sandwiches…

(Sink sandwiches!)

From then on it was known as Sinko De Mayo

Another little slice of history about today, in Michoacan Mexico on May 5th, 1983 the entire city decided not to wear deodorant for an entire week leading up to the date…

(Oh the funk)

That event was also kindly known as “Stinko De Mayo”

Have a day!
