    I would never object to an abbreviation. I'm Australian, our entire language is abbreviated! I've just never liked mayo, I don't eat eggs and I've never really been a fan of creamy stuff like say, cream, or mayo.

    Yeah, that's how we use it.

They are mostly artificial colours, flavours, SALT! and preservatives so I avoid but some are tasty and a guilty pleasure.

    Quite possibly! One of my old cookbooks from the 1880s has a recipe for a processed cheese spread with cheese and butter as the two ingredients. I seem to recall it involved using a mortar and pestle to make it into a paste.

    Was it this thread or some other thread where a poster said they won't eat white food, like mayo, sour cream, milk, etc? I've run across a few other people like this and it's fascinating. Usually it's men. I have this joke theory in my head that they won't eat foods that remind them of... well, never mind, this is not the place for that.

    Theres a No White Food diet but that's about sugar and carbs, not aesthetics. I think Jennifer Anniston was/is a fan.

    I can think of 3 guys I know who make terrible faces if somebody even mentions mayonnaise. Like they're gagging and choking. They feel really strongly about it. Kind of a shame, because I think mayo & sour cream are AWESOME. They're missing out.

    Men tend to be picky eaters anyway. They all had Eric Cartman's mom. I once made dinner for a couple of MrAOs contractors who were staying in a crappy motel (their choice) and needed some proper food after weeks of eating junk. I didn't know much about them and so played safe (I thought) with roast chicken, peas, carrots and potatoes. They recoiled in horror at the peas, carrots and even the potatoes and devoured the meat like savages. Lesson learned. So I tried again a couple of weeks later - they were nice blokes - and tried something without any obvious vegetables, a very basic Spag Bol. Well, from the look on their faces you'd think I'd served up a bowl of dog sick. They sniffed it suspiciously and prodded it with a fork but wouldn't dare taste it even after I explained it was basically meat sauce. Then I decided they were just pathetic and didn't invite them again.

    ^ They sound unforgivably rude. Anyone who acts like that as a guest in someone else's home, especially when the hostess has cooked especially for them, is without manners and their parents should be rolling over in their graves in mortification. Short of a real allergy or dietary restriction, I think you should smile and eat whatever your host presents you with unless it is something truly vile. They could always hit McDonalds later for processed grease if they felt they were dying from eating an actual vegetable.

    I would have sex with spag bol if I could. It's on the list of forever foods like pizza and fajitas.
