Slog It Blog It, Watery Wednesday!


Molly The Wally!
 
Well you could not make it up on watery Wednesday. A Titanic exhibition in Northern Ireland was closed yesterday due to .......... well water damage. Reports are sketchy from the area as to whether or not the museum was hit by an iceberg or if the damage was from heavy rainfall? I've got that sinking feeling about this.
 


Anyway moving on did you know Hellmanns' Mayonnaise is a 100 years old this year. Bet you thought we couldn't bring these two stories together.
 


Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmanns' mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss.

Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day. The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko de Mayo.

 Have a wonderful Wednesday all.

  21. Fact ~ Did you know Hellmanns is the only mayo that is gluten-free and you can eat it even if you have Celiac Disease. I went to a lecture last night by a Dietitians. The Titanic got hit by lettuce of my gosh! I like that cucumber Titanic.
