The food “mayonegg” (mayonnaise + egg) was coined by the television series Arrested Development, in the episode “The One Where They Build a House” (November 14, 2004). One character describes it:
“Oh, it’s so cute. She sometimes takes a little pack of mayonnaise, and she’ll squirt it in her mouth all over, and then she’ll take an egg and kind of...Mmmm! She calls it a ‘mayonegg.’”
Arrested Development was canceled after airing on February 10, 2006, but a fourth season was aired on Netflix, beginning May 26, 2013. Fans of Arrested Development planned parties featuring foods suggested from the television show, such as the “mayonegg.”

Unfortunately you have gotten some bad answers to your question. The reason this clip is so hilarious is because putting mayonaise on an egg is disgusting and Michael is horrified that his son is not only dating a girl who likes said mayonegg, but also finds her appaling way of eating it cute.

Here’s the Menu for Your Arrested Development Watching Party
By Ian Chant
Mayonegg – Among the simpler items on the menu, this is also one of the gnarliest. Which is something, considering plastic food is on here, too.
