Yes it is. If you empty out a mayonnaise pot you could make a drum. I think it would break pretty easy, but hey some modern instruments break pretty easily too. Now I think on it, practically anything could be an instrument if used in an unorthodox manner.
Mayonnaise makes noise when you stir it, when you take it out of the jar, and spread it on some bread. Its like a swish gurgle sound, and so yes it is an instrument because it makes music; its a utensil of the musical arts. It truly a fabulous music maker.
It is simply because this is the best question i've ever seen on this website.
Also if handled correctly im sure it could be. Maybe frozen into a drum shape? As a mould of any other instruments? It might lubricate the throat for singing? Its an excellent question and idea.
If you say no (which clearly, no one has), then you've never even tried to play it. Have you ever heard the luxurious sounds that come from playing the mayonnaise? The soft gurgling of the thick substance slushing against the walls of the jar it is encased in is absolutely astounding. Never underestimate the beauty of the mayonnaise.
You can actually play anything, as long as it makes noise, no joke. You could play a chair if you wanted as long as it makes some kind of noise. Mayonnaise could be an instrument because you could make it bubble or do whatever you want! So yes, mayonnaise is really an instrument.
If violins are considered instruments despite the pain they bring to the listeners' ears, along with their annoying squeaking sounds that cause the rest of world's ears to bleed. Even mayonnaise can make noise that sounds better than the violin and if the violin is the instrument, why isn't mayonnaise?
I think mayonnaise can be used as an instrument of warfare. But, I guess it is possible to be used as a musical instrument. Maybe you just have to taste it first to find out its tune. Or you could use the mayonnaise jar as a drum to beat on.
If the mayonnaise wasn't an instrument than how would one be expected to play the tuba, for example? They work on similar principles! I've personally played the mayonnaise for many years and can tell you that no orchestra or band would be complete without it. Where would the famous (or infamous) Beethoven's fifth be without the mayonnaise? How about the mayonnaise solos on Sting's new album? Would Debussy even be known today without his amazing writing for the mayonnaise? Even crappy new pop artists recognize the importance and expressive capabilities of the mayonnaise! If anything, we must increase our appreciation of the mayonnaise and continue to expose the younger generations to the beauty of the mayonnaise. I also hear that some experimental new musicians have been using the electric-mayonnaise which will probably help this amazing instrument to be more accessible to appreciation by younger audiences. In fact, if your children begin to gain more interest in music and ask for piano or guitar lessons, suggest to them the mayonnaise instead. Not only is it the most versatile and expressive of instruments, there is also less of a financial investment in case your children later decide to not continue in pursuit of their musical endeavors. You could even begin by making comments when it appears in their favorite songs, like,"Ah, the mayonnaise....Have you ever heard a more beautiful sound?" or "I wish I could play the mayonnaise like that. If there was ever a regret I have in my life, it is that I didn't continue/start mayonnaise lessons!" Sure there will be some squeeks and pops at first, but jJust imagine the joy you'll experience later as your children become better and better and your entire house is eventually filled with the beautiful sound of the mayonnaise!
You see, my music teacher always taught me instruments are everywhere. For this situation, he would've tried to prove it by emptying a mayonnaise jar into a bowl and then stirring it. The thicker the mayo the better. It makes a slap/clap noise when the mayo separated from itself comes back into contact, therefore a unit of percussion. Thank you.
This side makes pretty good arguments and pretty good rebuttals for something as stupid as this topic. If it makes a sound, whether it be the jar as a drum or the stirring of it, it makes a sound that can be put into a song and be played for the sound and beat of it.
When you use a pink talking starfish from a kid's show about two adults acting like immature children asking a question as stupid as "is mayonnaise an instrument?" while holding a legitimate instrument then you sir have officially declared yourself to be higher than the f***ing space needle. Thank you.
Mayonnaise is not an instrument. The only true instrument is our glorious lord Miracle Whip. He plays the melodic tunes that my soft, supple, ears want to hear. Mayonnaise is an imposter. Who cares if Miracle Whip is immatation mayonnaise? Mayonnaise copied Miracle Whip's awesomeness. All hail Miracle Whip! May he rule forever!!!
HORSE RADISH ISNT AN INSTRUMENT EITHER.....
Well now that the joke is over, what am I supposed to do with the rest of the 30 words that im still required to type out? Oh wait now im down to fifteen. Holy crap now I only need six more!! That was easier then I thought
More than half of the people in this argument says that mayonnaise is an instrument well they are retarded. Its nothing personal its just your answer is so retarded. This shouldn't even be debatable. If Spongebob was not real people would not be debating this. Plus, if it was an instrument how come nobody has showed the world how to play it. So you people saying yes are dummies.
Who in their right mind would actually debate mayonnaise being an instrument? I hear a lot of you morons saying that the jar can be used as a drum, which I'll agree to; but the last time I checked, Patrick didn't ask Squidward if A MAYONNAISE JAR was an instrument, to which I'm sure Squidward would've said yes to. So for the 81% of you people who are actually sitting back your asses and arguing over something that shouldn't even be argued over in the first place because it's so stupid, just quit now. If you all would just apply some freakin common sense into your lives, you would know that something that we put on sandwiches cannot be played in a band/orchestra. I swear it's debates like these that make people believe that all Americans are stupid and lazy
Why would mayonnaise be used as an instrument. Maybe and mayonnaise jar could be used as a instrument. The jar could be used as a drum but we are talking about mayonnaise itself. All you can do is flop it around, who would want to do that. I say the Mayonnaise is not an instrument.
The peanut tar tar sauce is an incredible refinement to common mayonnaise that makes it create beautiful music. So, mayonnaise is an awful music making tool(akin to violin in terms of it's squeaking and it's strange inclination to spontaneous combustion.) I suppose that in the right hands such as the gifted...Mitten things...Of maestro patrick, the mayonnaise can generate a noise that is pleasing.
You are weird for saying that is is an instrument. I know it is food. Food you eat but you can't eat instruments. This is just my opinion so I'm not trying to be mean to you. So basically, you play an online but you eat mayo. Mayo is disgusting. But still.
Instruments are things made to make a specific sounds or have a use. Even hands can be body percussion, but I wouldn't call them instruments. They are just, used as instruments.
My rule I tell percussionist beginners: "If you hit, rub, or slap it and it sounds good, it's percussion."
The important part of this is that it must "sound good"
