    If you don't want people to say it, then don't say it at all. Duh.

    Must people really take the fun out of everything?

    Which seemed completely fine until the other condiments started making a fuss...again.

    15. This jar of mayo doesn’t think it’s fair that people talk so much shit about mayo. If people said those things about vinegar or pickle relish, everyone would be so up in arms, but noooo, it's fine if it's about mayo.
