“She’s always late. Her ancestors arrived on the Juneflower”

Many people’s ancestors arrived on the Mayflower ship that landed in America in 1620. There was no ship called the “Juneflower,” but there are jokes.

“I’m always late. My ancestors arrived on the Juneflower” was posted on the newsgroup comp.sys.ibm.pc.misc on December 5, 1993. “She’s always late. Her ancestors arrived on the June flower” was printed in the Vancouver (BC) Sun on August 26, 1997. “I’m always late. My ancestors arrived on the Juneflower” has been printed on many images.


Wikipedia: Mayflower
The Mayflower was an English ship that famously transported the first English Puritans, known today as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth, England to the New World in 1620. There were 102 passengers, and the crew is estimated to have been about 30, but the exact number is unknown. This voyage has become a cultural icon in the history of the United States, with its story of death and survival in the harsh New England winter environment. The culmination of the voyage was the signing of the Mayflower Compact, an event which established a rudimentary form of democracy, with each member contributing to the welfare of the community.
