Some foods seem to create controversy -- people either love them or hate them. Ketchup. Mustard. Nuts. Chocolate - okay, only a lunatic would hate chocolate. I dated a guy once who decided he didn't like chocolate because it was so unhealthy. His mental powers were such that after his change in taste, he would actually become sick to his stomach at the smell of chocolate. This was one of the reasons that I did not marry him.
But I digress.
I grew up eating Miracle Whip. I loved Miracle Whip so much that when I was a kid I would get a nice fat slice of cheddar cheese, and slather it with a nice thick layer of Miracle Whip and eat the combo that way. Once upon a time I was prone to eating it straight from the jar on a spoon. Ketchup was a close second on my favorite condiments list. In fact, for the first ten years of my life, those two sauces were the only ones on my favorite condiments list. I didn't know there were any others. Hey - I grew up in Idaho. That explains a lot about me, don't you think?
Don't answer that.
Now, I am not above eating Mayo if that's all that's available. This is because I am tolerant and open minded and a good Christian. But there is a fascinating trend I have noticed in my extensive experience and research (cough) into human nature: Miracle Whip people will eat Mayo if there is no other choice. Mayo people, however, will not condescend to eating Miracle Whip, no how no way. They'd rather starve. Not only this, but Miracle Whip lovers are openly mocked and ridiculed by Mayo-nites everywhere. It is open persecution, people. Think Rome and Christians.
So now I'd like to test my little hypothesis, in this most scientific random sampling of the world population. Which bread spread do you prefer? If you prefer Mayonnaise, are you a militant Mayo-nite that heaps persecution on the humble Miracle-Whippersnappers of the world?
Enquiring minds want to know.
