…to the Mayonnaise Defense League, an organization of individuals dedicating to protecting this wonderful condiment from defamation and disparagement.
Who is the MDL? We are your neighbor, your co-worker, your aunt, your grandpappy. MDL is everywhere, and we do not appreciate it when you call mayo gross or disgusting. MDL local chapters meet bi-weekly around the world.
The MDL does not preach hate toward any sauce or condiment, however, MDL cannot defend “light mayo” or Miracle Whip. We are affiliated with the Mayonnaise Appreciation Society and the British Mayonnaise Defence League, but have nothing to do with the scoundrels at the Mayonnaise Council.
End the Intolerance
Across the globe from Africa to Zimbabwe, billions enjoy mayonnaise1, and why not? This concoction of oil and egg is as versatile as it is delicious. It is used as a spread, a dipping sauce, and an ingredient in salads and other dishes.
Recently it has become fashionable to badmouth mayonnaise (no pun intended). Of course, everyone is entitled to their tastes and opinions, but please keep it to yourself. Our children should not have to hear taunts such as:
- “Spreading it a bit thick, aren’t we?”
- “Mayo is for losers, ketchup is king!”
- “I heard you go through a jar a week.”
- “Ew, that looks gross.”
And please, I cannot stress this enough, no one wants to hear what bodily fluids mayonnaise reminds you of. No one.
