The True Origin Of Cinco De Mayo

Many years ago an American mayonnaise company decided to build a factory in Mexico. The local villagers warned the arrogant Americans that they shouldn't locate their factory on swampland. No matter how much landfill was trucked in, said the locals, the property wouldn't support such a large building.

The American businessmen laughed at the villagers, thinking they were ignorant.

The factory was built and was soon up and running. But one day it suddenly sank, breaking up, a total loss.

The local villagers celebrated that event as a special holiday: Sinkhole Of Mayo.
