Sink all the mayo!

This is the story behind why we celebrate the fifth of May.

When the USA was early in its war between the states, Mexico was experiencing its own internal struggle. The country’s condiment king, Pepe de Trumpe, was taxing the citizens without giving them a governing voice. The workers quickly went from frustrated to motivated to activated.

There was no condiment with nearly the profit margin or popularity as mayonnaise. Taking inspiration from the Boston Tea Party, they decided that the next mayonnaise shipment would be targeted for destruction.

The cry went out: “Sink all the mayo! Sink all the mayo!”

The successful drowning of the mayonnaise was the beginning of the sinking of de Trumpe.

With a shortage of mayo, the people needed to find an available condiment. They turned to salsa. Soon, salsa would be Mexico’s favorite food flavoring.

Because salsa eventually grew to be beloved throughout the world, we join in celebrating Mexico’s victory and gladly cry: Sink all the mayo! Sink all the mayo!
