Orlando, FL (AP) – Mayo, Florida, is holding the mayo, at least for a few days.
The mayor of this tiny town of less than 1,500 residents is announcing Saturday that the city is switching its name to “Miracle Whip.’’
But it’s a joke.
Videographers for the Kraft Heinz-owned mayonnaise-alternative want to capture the shock of residents when they hear that the name of their town is being changed to a corporate brand.
The town’s elected officials say they will let residents in on the joke after a few days, but not before street signs and the name on the water tower have been switched out.
However, an open-government advocate says the elected officials may have violated Florida’s Sunshine Law by reaching the deal with Miracle Whip behind closed doors.
