Hellmann's Mayonnaise - a bit of history.

For some real education

Cinco is Spanish for Five
Mayo.. May

De, Of or From

Cinco De Mayo 5th of May.

It is, however, a good joke.. Thanks for posting it.

Hey wayne, I said it was a good joke.

I could have said it was a bad pun, but you should know that the only good puns are bad puns right.

Anyone remember the old Hellman's commercial from the mid 60's where a guy is in a pool on a floating lounge chair, and yells "Hey, where's the Hellman's?" and a mini submarine surfaces, the conning tower opens, and a hand appears, holding a Hellman's mayo jar?

My uncle and my father were in the film production support business at the time, one day my dad brought home a Dodge motor home with the submarine resting on the bed in the back, he was in charge of the motor home and the sub for the production. Pretty heady stuff for a third grader.
