Posted on 08/15/2018 7:02:09 PM PDT by EdnaMode
The inexorable rise of identity condiments has led to hard times for the most American of foodstuffs. And thats a shame.
Along about a decade ago, though, I began to notice I was toting home as much of my offerings as Id concocted. My contributions were being overlooked or shunned. Why should this be? Moms extraordinary potato salad fragrant with dill, spiced by celery seed went untouched on the picnic table. So did her macaroni salad, and her chicken salad, and her deviled eggs. When I carted home a good three pounds of painstakingly prepared Waldorf salad all that peeling and coring and slicing! I was forced to face facts: The familys tastes had changed. Or, rather, our family had changed. Oldsters were dying off, and the young uns taking our places in the paper-plate line were different somehow.
I racked my brain for the source of this generational disconnect. And then, one holiday weekend, while surveying the condiments set out at a family burger bash, I found it. On offer were four different kinds of mustard, three ketchups (one made from, I kid you not, bananas), seven sorts of salsa, kimchi, wasabi, relishes of every ilk and hue
What was missing, though, was the common foundation of all Moms picnic foods: mayonnaise. While I wasnt watching, mayos day had come and gone. Its too basic for contemporary tastes pale and insipid and not nearly exotic enough for our era of globalization. Good ol mayo has become the Taylor Swift of condiments.

More idiotic clickbait
Philly is Miracle Whip country. Nasty stuff.
I didn’t do nothing! Mayo is ok....I guess.
Better than that disgusting avocado that they try to shove down my throat because “ALL Millennials LOVE AVOCADO TOAST!”.
LOL, I really dislike mayonnaise, so when I saw the thread, I had to come in and ask “Is it really dead?”
Great. One down, one to go. Onions next.
I use olive oil mayo now. Back when I used to eat salads out, I would always ask for Mayo on the side for my salad dressing. A couple of the wait staff even asked me “why would you do that?” And I told them salad dressing has powdered garlic, powdered onion, powdered this powder that and I can taste it for 3 or 4 days afterwards. So I just use Mayo little salt and pepper and I’m good.
Mayonnaise reminds me of certain body fluids. Just saying.
From my cold dead greasy hands...
I put mayonnaise on my avocado.
So new I have to keep my S&W Model 60 in the fridge to protect my mayo?
Make your own. Its not hard and its delicious.

That’s a good line, don’t worry, it tastes like Mayonnaise.
I guess Bill Clinton didn’t think to use it with Monica. It would have saved him a lot of trouble.
oh, and lots of Frank’s Hot Sauce.
It ain’t no way dead in my house. We go through lots of it. A cheeseburger or a RB sandwich isn’t complete without lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, ketchup and bread & butter pickle. We like Miracle Whip too.
Mayo on toast with a little mustard, fried egg and mild cheddar cheese just melted. Quick hot breakfast sandwich... yum.
The writer needed some novel theme that would pander to AfroCentrism-derived dreck, and THIS is it.
What’s wrong with Taylor Swift?
Mayo is white and gross, just like white people. It is micro-aggressing the culinary society.
Do you want mayo with that tuna sandwich?
No, why would I want it to be moist and delicious?
