"In 1912, mayonnaise was manufactured basically exclusively in the UK. In addition to all the people on it, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of Hellman's mayonnaise, bound for Vera Cruz, Mexico, the next port of call after New York. It would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But, it didn't get there, for obvious reasons.
The Mexican people loved mayonnaise so much that they actually declared a national day of mourning, which is still observed to this day, on the date the shipment was supposed to arrive: May 5th."
anyone else fucking love mayo?
