Is there a holiday in the US today that I'm not aware of (I am in Canada)? I am trying to contact a dealer in Wisconsin and have been on hold for over an hour. I have also tried peoples extensions and no one is picking up and neither are operators.

If no pants day is causing them to not answer their phones then I am as well intrigued.

It hasn't made the lists yet. It's in honor of a cast member of Futurama. The thing is, this day every week is that holiday. I don't know why this isn't better known.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Probably all hung over from Cinco de Mayo.

Actual conversation I had with a Mexican-descent employee:

Me: What are you doing for Cinco de Mayo?
Her: When is Cinco de Mayo? (she was 100% serious)
Me: (inside my head) Your fired...as I walked away.

What part of Wisconsin? Here in the Milwaukee area, we're working. In Madison, they do whatever they want and up North, they're probably fishing.

Problem is, she won't, but the 200lb 85 year old granny probably can't wait!

Its because to them Cinco De Mayo is about as important as the Boston Tea Party is to the average American. It was important but not many can tell you when it happened...helll...most Americans cant tell you what it was or what it led up to.

That's very likely but what shocked/annoyed me is that someone who speaks Spanish natively does not know that cinco = five and mayo = May...I'm the whitest guy around who speaks no foreign languages; even I understand when Cinco de Mayo is !

I thought it was the international celebration of mayonnaise. Where have you been?
There are five foundation sauces or basic sauces, called in French grandes sauces or sayces meres. Two of them have a record of two hundred years behind them; they are the "bechamelle" and the "mayonnaise". They have lasted so long, not only because they are very good, but also because they are so adaptable and provide a fine basis for a considerable number of other sauces.

The other three, which also date back to the 18th century, are the "veloute," the "brune," and the "blonde." These five sauces still provide the basis for making of many modern sauces, but no longer of most of them.

Modern sauces may be divided into two classes: the "Careme" and "Escoffier" classes. Among the faithful, in the great kitchen of the world, Escoffier is to Careme what the New Testament is to the Old.

Problem with all that, it forgot Eastern Carolina Que Sauce.
