An Instrument of Torture


Still from “The Mayo Conspiracy” (click to enlarge)

One of the most disturbing events uncovered in the upcoming film, The Mayo Conspiracy, relates to a controversial technique utilized for “enhanced interrogations.” Known officially in secret circles as “Mayo-boarding”, this practice creates the sensation that one is literally drowning in the emulsion. No doubt it’s an extremely effective means of gathering intelligence. Who wouldn’t talk to avoid a mayonnaise bombardment. However, the bigger question is the legal one: Should mayoboarding be considered unconstitutional? Those folks born with a normal aversion to mayonnaise would certainly lean towards the “torture” interpretation, in which case, we should consider ourselves above such behavior. (especially in a democratic society) But then again, what if information is really really needed? What if national security is at risk? It’s a tough call. When it’s not a black and white issue, any good movie, like The Mayo Conspiracy, can really make you think. Very interested in hearing your opinions on mayoboarding so please, leave some comments!

Speaking of this monumental condimental conspiracy, we are currently in the process of entering into film festivals and the easiest way to get information about future dates and showtimes, would be to follow us on facebook or twitter.

Happy eating,
