I Hate Mayonnaise Club

Honolulu columnist Charles Memminger founded the Worldwide I Hate Mayonnaise Club in 1988. Its purpose was to spread the gospel of mayonnaise hatred. It did so by circulating quotations such as, "Mayonnaise, like hollandaise, was invented by the French to cover up the flavour of spoiled flesh, stale vegetables, rotten fish."

Member's would receive an official certificate that they could frame and put on their wall.

I'm not sure if the club is active any more. Its website (nomayo.com) is dead, though you can check out an archived copy of it at archive.org.

Perhaps all the members saw the light and realized that mayonnaise is the greatest food ever.

I never have liked the stuff! Probably a necessary ingredient in Mac D's special sauce.

Not surprised that the founder of this club worked in Honolulu. People in Hawaii tend to LOVE mayo -- on burgers, plate lunch rice, and of course, Spam. When I was a kid, you'd have to ask specifically for a burger or sandwich without mayo. I think that's changed somewhat now.

I mayo on some stuff, well really miracle whip. I was raised using salad dressing and calling it mayo. I still prefer what I grew up with mostly.

Most fast food vendors push the workers to prepare a number of burgers ahead during a shift. (Haven't you ever wondered why your order is filled so fast in the drive through line?) That means everything will be glopped on when assembled and placed on the warming rack.

A co-worker told me years ago that the best way to make sure you receive a freshly assembled burger is to order with a combination of condiments that requires special handling - his favorite was to order lettuce and mayonnaise only. I do the same.

When I was little, I was frightened of mayonnaise. I don't know what I thought it was but I definitely wouldn't eat it.
