Mayostard Inside Joke

Hey look, I made some GIFs for when I have to go to work again.

Best part of work is leaving at the end of the day, amirite?!

That and you know... getting a paycheck.


There's this old MR. SHOW sketch about competing brands of mustard-and-mayonnaise spread (like Goober peanut butter and jelly in a jar), featuring alternating commercials where the gag is essentially that we must be freed from the tyranny of the Separate-Mustard-and-Mayonnaise-Industrial-Complex:

One commercial, clearly patterned after the iconic Apple 1984 commercial, features a machine-gun-toting Abraham Lincoln -- decked in mustard and mayonnaise colors -- bursting through a door and exclaiming, "LET'S GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE!"

Referring to this sketch, Work Friend X and I would use "Mayostard" as short-hand for "Let's get the hell out of here!" (Even though, technically, the brand being advertised in this particular commercial is "Mustardayonnaise".)

For good measure, here's the final commercial in the running gag -- the prestige, if you will:

Enjoy your weekend, lurking horrors. Let's be careful out there.
