Probably Not a Real Holiday: Cinco de Jonathan Mayo

Mayo
These coeds also can’t believe the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces in 1862.

The capital-R Record states that Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated on May 5th and originally established in the Mexican state of Puebla so that young dipsomaniacal Americans might have a sanctioned pretense — between St. Patrick’s Day (in mid-March) and Memorial Day (in late-May) — upon which to make terrible life decisions.

The intent of the current post is to establish is that, upon examination of the aforementioned Record, that Cinco de Jonathan Mayo — presumably in honor of MLB.com prospect analyst Jonathan Mayo — does not appear to be a real holiday. This is not, of course, to discount the importance of Mayo’s work, but rather just to establish that said work has not (yet) been officially recognized by means of a widely celebrated holiday.

I made shots yesterday with tequila, mayonaisse, and ground up peanuts + crackerjacks. Do you mean this was done in vain?

I’m flattered, and honored, I think. But Steven, that drink sounds like it should be against the Geneva Accords.

Thanks for thinking of me!
