Monday Pun 5-5-2008

Sent to me by many readers and is a repeat for the occasion.

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was
manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of
the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be
the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.

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

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

The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of
course, as

Sinko de Mayo.

And a bonus from Richard.

To deal with an incorrigible punster, just don't incorrige him.

This sad holiday is actually remembred everyday
by Mexican Lunch Trucks (Roach Coaches)here in
L.A., Kalifornia.

Instead of ruining an otherwise perfectly good
hamburger with Mayonasse, They ruin it with
a slice of more or less ripe avacado. Please
save the Mayo for tuna and the avacado for Goucamolie.

I'm with Bruce Willis' character from The Whole Nine Yards on the value of mayo on hamburgers.

Yeah, I so love this holiday. A big parade with a bunch of illegal's marching down my home town main street bitching about their so called "right" to be here. They always seem to forget about the legal document AKA green card, visa. Even my recently home from Iraq son commented on it today. He wanted to know why his home town has become all hispanic.

I saw it coming around the bend......but I still liked it.

Teresa - Thank your liberal buddies. Illegals vote for Dimocrats. And yes, illegals do vote.

Posted by: Denny on May 6, 2008 03:24 PM

Ah,No Denny. What about your pick McCain? He is all for amenesty. He wants to let them all come in so that they can vote for his old flat ass. Pro war and all that crap. HE IS TOO OLD AND NARROW MINDED TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY.

Nebraska Nitwit - Actually, McRINO is not my pick. He's a Dimocrat. I fear the winner will be Jug Hussein Ears, if Thunder Rodent Thighs doesn't steal the nomination. If you think illegal immigration is bad now, wait until the black Jimmah Carter gets in. The only people against illegal immigration are conservatives, those people you hate so much. We conservatives with our letters and faxes (and I was one of them) to our elected representatives are the ones who spiked amnesty. My congressman (Tom Price)and my senators (Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss) voted against amnesty. You prolly don't have a clue as to how your congressman and senators voted. You better learn Spanish TDO. Look for more Mexicans in your schools. After this election, the Dimocrats will push through an amnesty bill and President Obama will sign it. You'll prolly still find a reason to blame Bush.

Teresa of Nebraska.- You know nothing about your country. You worry about Spanish people. You should worry about terrorists. Your country is already invaded by terrorists and you don't even see it. Your only chance to keep your country safe is to let McCain handle the Iraq War with honor. Instead you want someone as leader who will open the gates and invite the terrorists in. The Spanish will not bomb your streets, your buses, your subways. How come you don't see where the real danger is?

You always mention McCain's age. Churchill was over 70 when he led England to victory with his allies. You're the one who is narrow-minded. I'm over 70, and I understand your country better than you do. And I'm still doing difficult work. What do you have against older people? You think we're senile?

Invasion is always unfair to a country. I understand the irritation. The difference between the illegal Hispanics and the legal Moslem-terrorists is huge. The first ones want to attain the American standard of living. It's their dreams. The others want to destroy USA and create a nightmare. The way I see it, at the moment, only Mr.McCain could stop it from happening. I've spoken my piece. I'm with you, with all my heart.

Claudia - It's pointless trying to explain anything to the Nebraska Nitwit. Remember, she is a liberal and liberalism is a mental disorder. On top of that, she suffers from a real bad case of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Can you believe she is an RN and is responsible for the care of people?

Posted by: Denny on May 7, 2008 03:46 PM

Denny - I'm sure other liberals read your blog. Maybe some of what you say to Teresa will get to them. Also even conservatives have to see what the major problem is at the moment. It will be terrible if they don't vote at all because they don't like McCain. You have to do the best with what you have. Maybe you should start sending your faxes to McCain's campaign headquarters right now. I wish I could!

"Senator McCain, you'll have my vote. Here's what we want..." I would him give him a list.

Thanks for the comment Denny as always. Pfft. You are also from the Midwest so very funny of you to diss me, jerk. Claudia my dear, I do in fact know a lot about our country. I know that the spics are overtaking my town and my son came home from Iraq with hearing damage. Thank you Dubya and will this war ever end? I also know that my freshman son is a minority in most of his classes. His class has to Wait for someone to translate for those that cannot understand english. So yeah, I make no appologies for getting upset about what our kid's have to face.

Posted by: Teresa on May 8, 2008 11:49 PM

Nebraska Nitwit - I didn't diss you because you are from the Midwest. I dissed you because you are a clueless liberal. Jug Hussein Ears, Thunder Rodent Thighs, and McRINO are all for amnesty which means you'll get even more "spics" (nice racist epithet there). It's only conservatives like me who want stronger borders and enforcement of our immigration laws. Keep voting for liberals TDO. You are a fine example of cognitive dissonance. You vote for people who want us to lose in Iraq and who want our country overrun with illegals. Who are you gonna bitch about when we have President Jug Hussein Ears with a Dimocrat Congress? And for the record, McRINO would be almost as bad.

Teresa from Nebraska-

I'm not your "Claudia my dear". Just an old folk like McCain. I'm always taken by surprise by your type of Americanism. Of course your son suffered from his war experiences. All veterans do. But he was brave enough to volunteer. Don't take the glory away from him by using him to express your own discontent and by minimizing the just war he fought in. Be proud and help him with the problems he encounters. Maybe he'll be the man that will work at correcting those problems, one day. Your constant disparaging of your country must be so depressing. He is alive and he is home. It's still a free country. Make sure you elect a President who will keep it that way.

My brother, a volunteer and WW2 veteran, did not come back to a perfect country,and with a perfect health, after 5 years overseas. He settled back to his law studies, with students much younger than him. He worked hard, and then became an active, useful citizen ready to help his country with the problems we had. The main thing for him was that we were still a free country because he had gone, with others, to fight for our freedom.
