Mayonnaise Sucks, BTW

I had a roast beef sandwich from this fantastic French place (I'll grab the name and cite it later) for lunch today. The sammich had mayo on it. I got to thinking -- how amazing is it that mayo is the staple it is?

I mean it's not very tasty, it's not good for us, it's just sorta icky when you think about it:

Ingredients: Soybean oil, whole eggs, vinegar, water, egg yolks, salt, sugar, lemon juice, natural flavors, calcium disodium EDTA (used to protect quality).

How cool is it that there's actually a website all about mayo?

Finally -- the only thing worse than mayo? Fake mayo!:

Ingredients: Water, soybean oil, modified food starch, vinegar*, corn syrup, egg whites, salt, sugar, lemon juice, mustard flour, potassium sorbate, cellulose gel, cellulose gum, natural flavors, D, L, Alpha Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), beta carotene (color), and calcium disodium EDTA added to protect flavor.
