    Happie Cinco de Mayo! I didn’t nott to know this but Cinco de Mayo it be HORSE RELATED.

    There beed five Mayo brothers: Groucho, Harpo, Zippo, Gordo und Rico Suave. They haff beed distant relations von der Guinness brothers Patty und Ricky. Any ways, there beed twenny chillens all to gether in der Mayo family, aber we only be talking a-bout these five.

    They haff started ein horse racing stable called Mayo Brothers Racing in Rosarita Beach, Mexico, der idea wot it haff comed to them one night when they beed getting hammered at der bar von La Fonda. Gordo he haff sayed that die distant Oirish cousines, Patty und Ricky, they haff invented horse supplement wot it be called Guinness, und this it be verrie good for horses. Und so Rico Suave he haff sayed that they could to make one them selves, mit tequila und worm at der bottom, und giff it to der race horses wot they haff been running at Agua Caliente in Tijuana for years.

    Und zo this it beed how it haff beed invented. Der grooms at Agua Caliente (this wot it be Espanol for “hot water”), they haff discovered that MAYO it also be good for peoples, und zo they goed to the store und sayed “I will have ein cinco de Mayo, bitte.” Und then they haff shared this mit their horses.

    It haff becomed legendary drink in Mexico und zo they haff maded Cinco de Mayo ein big celebration day for this good supplement for horses.

    Ole!

    Loff Willem.

    Ok, Willem, my dear friend, I am revising my idea for the book you should write.

    It should definitely be a history book!

    Another little-known fact is that the Mayo brothers who started the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota were distant cousins of Groucho, Harpo, Zippo, Gordo und Rico Suave, and they were originally veterinarians. They started the REAL Mayo Clinic as an equine hospital, but when the use of horses in the city declined, they doctored (as it were) their diplomas and converted the Mayo Clinic to a hospital for people.

    Enjoy your supplements, all!
