“What do you call a Mexican drowning in mayonnaise?"/"Sinko de Mayo.”

A popular Cinco de Mayo riddle is:

Q: What do you call a Mexican drowning in mayonnaise?
A: Sinko de Mayo.


The Cinco/Sinko de Mayo pun was posted on Twitter on November 26, 2012.


Wikipedia: Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo (pronounced: [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo]; Spanish for “Fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico. In the U.S. the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades.
