Mayonnaise is a popular condiment among a lot of Americans; however, there is on famous mother that can’t stand the white sandwich spread: Honey Boo Boo‘s mother.
According to Today, Honey Boo Boo’s mama can’t stand to see mayonnaise in it’s unmixed form.
“I cannot stand mayonnaise. Yes, it is in my house, and this is gonna sound weird. I do eat potato salad. I will eat a tuna fish salad. But I will not eat it if I made it. If somebody else makes it I will eat it. But if I watch somebody make it, I can’t do it.”
Apparently, when Honey Boo Boo’s mama was little, her babysitter used to mayonnaise a little too much.
Mama said this while cringing:
“We ate mayonnaise sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinners, snack — every time. I can’t talk about it, it’s so… ugh. It is making my flesh crawl.”
In order to have her mom face her fear of mayonnaise, Honey Boo Boo and her sisters decided to prepare her a giant bowl of it.
Lauryn, aka “Pumpkin,” said:
“I think it’s stupid that you’re scared of mayonnaise, Mama. I mean, seriously, it’s mayonnaise. … C’mon. That’s like ketchup, but it’s just white.”
However, Mama June failed to failed to see the connection between the two condiments. In fact, as Honey Boo Boo’s bowl of mayonnaise got closer and closer to her, Mama started to panic.
She warned her daughters:
“My anxiety level is up like beyond out the roof. I mean, like my chest is real tight. My throat feels like it’s gonna close up.”
Honey Boo Boo said:
“Mama was turning white — just like mayonnaise!”
Honey Boo Boo’s show airs night at 9 pm on TLC.
