"The celebration of Sinko De Mayo can be traced to the War of 1812 when the British sank a ship full of mayonnaise of the coast of Mexico. The name 'Sinko De Mayo' has been bastardize to 'Cinco DE Mayo'. The Beer Cartel ran with this celebration so they could sell beer in buckets of five colds beers on ice and the liquor industry jumped on the ship to sell margaritas. This is why even today Mexicans don't like mayonnaise ...its either red or green salsa."
Sinko De Mayo
Please remember that my home town newspaper reported the moon landings as a hoax and was instrumental in instilling fear into peoples lives when they reported that Orson Well's 'War of the Worlds' broadcast was genuine.
