Philippa Garfield, from London, England, loves mayonnaise so much she will eat it with pretty much anything, and even wash her hair with it.
We’ve featured some pretty weird addictions here on Oddity Central, from the guy addicted to sausages, to the woman who loved drinking her own urine, but Philippa Garfield takes things to a whole other level. While mayo might not be the strangest thing a person can become addicted to, it’s the way she uses it that makes her story really bizarre. Although she loves eating mayo and pours it over anything she eats, and even in her morning coffee, Philippa also uses the fatty condiment as a cheap moisturizer and conditioner for her hair. She also sees it as the perfect alternative to shaving cream.
The Diagonal View video doesn’t reveal how Philippa Garfield first got addicted to mayo, but it makes it very clear she likes the stuff a little too much. She apparently eats it with everything, even desserts which I find pretty disgusting. The smell of her hair after a mayonnaise shower isn’t very appealing, either.
