History I
Back in the early 1900's Hellmans mayonnaise was manufactured in ?.....ENGLAND!

In May 1912 a large shipment of approximately 12,000 large jars was bound for the Port of Veracruz in Mexico after a brief stop in New York City. The Mexican people were crazy about the condiment and were packed into Veracruz awaiting its arrival...

HOWEVER: The ship never departed New York City having never arrived after it met with a sea going disaster. The Titanic went down carrying most of its passengers and all of the Mayonaise.

The crowd upon hearing of this loss were disconsolate. The national government declared a day of mourning

To this day they remember it as:

Sinko DeMayo.

Yes, very funny joke, however, didn't the Titanic sink on like 12 April or something like that. I guess it was due to arrive in Veracruz Mexico on 5 May, right and it took that long for the news of the sinking to arrive.

The pony express had been abandoned by then MEL, ask RR that's when he decided not to work for the post office and went into business for himself. Of course he realizes that in retrospect it was a good decision, he'd probably still be cleaning stables..

That's OK, I like Mircle Whip better anyway.
