Two gringos decide to open up a bungee jumping business in the middle of of the Yucatan. As they finish setting up their 120 foot platform, a large group of natives assemble to watch. The two men climb the platform and one places the harness around his ankle saying to the other," As soon as they see this, they'll be signing up in droves", and leaps off the platform. On his first return trip back up the other man notices the jumpers nose is bloody, on the second return back up his face is a bloody mess and shouts to him,"My God, are you hitting the ground? And the other guy say,"No, but what fuck is a piƱata?"

customs in the Port of Vera Cruz, Mexico. This was to have been the next
port of call for this great ship after it's stop in New York City. From
there, it was destined for delivery to the aristocracy in Mexico City,
which as you know is the seat of government for the Republic de Mexico.

This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever
delivered to Mexico. But, as we all know, that great ship did not make
it to New York City after it hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic and
sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly
awaiting this delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was
so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they
still observe today.

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on 5th of May and is
known, of course, as Sinko de Mayo.
I heard a guy on the radio tell that same goofy story this morning.

Don't believe everything you think
