Yesterday, was Cinco de Mayo - a big party day for Americans and the fine folks in Mexico. (Personally I think it's just an excuse to drink a lot of alcohol.) Anyway, my son learned about this day in school. But before he did, he had to take a test to see what he already knew. Here's how that went:
Question: What does Cinco de Mayo mean?
My Son's Answer: Hold the Mayo.
Question: What does Cinco de Mayo celebrate?
My Son's Answer: The glorious existence of mayonnaise.
So there you go, ladies and gentlemen. Cinco de Mayo is all about mayonnaise. Bet you had no idea!
Before I go, I'd like to wish all moms a very Happy Mother's Day! (We celebrate here in the United States this Sunday.)
No, I didn't.ReplyDelete
And surprised someone hasn't made either beer-flavored Mayo or vice versa.
You joke, but just remember that no matter how terrible it sounds, somewhere, somehow, some hipster has brewed it.Delete
Ha! I'd have to be really drunk to drink mayo-flavored beer!Delete
So funny. Happy Mother's Day to you!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day as well.Delete
Deep sigh. A whole day devoted to mayonnaise...? Well, then again, they have whole days for talking like a pirate and ice cream, so why not mayonnaise?ReplyDelete
Absolutely. Think of all the fun things you could do with mayonnaise. ;-)Delete
Actually, Bubba is on the right track. South of the border, "Cinco de Mayo" is an expression customers in restaurants use when ordering to indicate that they want 5 times the usual amount of Mayo on their sandwiches. :)
I hope Bubba is on the mend. His imagination and sense of humor are in great shape! :)
I wish you a happy Mother's Day, dear friend Sherry!
Thank you, Shady! I had a lovely Mother's Day. Bubba is certainly on the mend. And you are right - his sense of humor is in great shape!Delete
No deviation to Miracle Whip? Clever boy!ReplyDelete
No. We use mayo at my pad. Nothing but the best. ;-)Delete
well, not that it isn't glorious! I could not imagine life without mayo!ReplyDelete
Mayo most certainly is glorious. Where would the tuna noodle casserole be without it. ;-)Delete
Mayo probably has it's own day somewhere too. True, excuse for people to drinkReplyDelete
Saw lots of the latter going on in Atlanta!Delete
T be honest, I would have answered the questions in exactly the same way as your son :) Never heard of the celebration but it must be fun. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
If you like Mexican food and alcohol, it's a lot of fun.Delete
If someone had pronounced it for him instead of him reading it, and he heard the "i" sound instead of seeing the "a", who knows what he might of come up with. I can see he has a political future!ReplyDelete
I'll have all my family here tomorrow after church! The kids are cooking fish and frog legs.
Side note: Mexico celebrates Mother's Day on the 10th.

That's funny you should mention Bubba's political future. He has a keen interest in politics.Delete
Fish and frog legs? Uh, not so sure I'd want to be stopping by your place for dinner. ;-) Enjoy!
Happy Mother's Day to you, too! :)
Cute... I like the idea about this day being about mayo... and no I never knew that... lolReplyDelete
Happy Mothers day... have a wonderful one xox
Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day, Launna!Delete
Awesome! I came across a mayo recipe in making dinner rolls.ReplyDelete
Just in time for the celebration!Delete
Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
Not a 'day' I'd come across before. Wishing you both a belated Cinco de Mayo as well as a belated Mother's Day.ReplyDelete
Thank you. We enjoyed both days at my pad.Delete
Actually, he's closer to the real Cinco de Mayo than most.ReplyDelete
Haha! I'll let him know.Delete
Ha, ha, ha! He knows more about Cinco de Mayo than some presidential candidates.ReplyDelete
