Regular readers will know that I'm a bit of a movie buff. It runs in the family - my dad has a collection of over 2,000 classic films. So when I came to post a video on the topic of how to make mayonnaise, the title was a no-brainer.
For those of you who have never seen the comedy classic Airplane!, the immortal words are uttered when Captain Oveur is interrupted in the middle of a call to the Mayo Clinic by the operator telling him there's an emergency call on Line 5 from Mr. Hamm. "All right", says Oveur, "get me Hamm on five; hold the Mayo".
Excuse the video quality - it's shot on my old Olympus Camedia C60 camera and I can't afford video editing software, so I just use the freebie VirtualDub.
Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy the clips. More importantly, if you've never made your own mayonnaise then I hope this encourages you to have a go.
Here's the demonstration video
...and here's me making it whiter!
Finally, if anyone tells you this acting lark is easy - don't believe a word of it!
