    Why are they seem so disguisted, in particular the girl - I think her overreacting is just for show. Can't believe her "sophisticated" taste doesn't let her like simple vegetable salad which is typical and favourite dish in Poland.

  • beebs (Mar 12, 2019)

    Nah, it’s just that a lot of people in the US, especially younger people, just really hate mayo.

  • MissIgnatius (4 days ago)

  • Blake Blake (Jan 7, 2019)

  • I. Peltier (Jan 10, 2019)

  • NoctLightCloud (Mar 16, 2019)
