What is it about Orthodox Jews and dips?

It seems that many Orthodox Jews (usually more to the right of center) are obssessed with Shabbos dips. They seem to be under the mistaken impression that when you mix a vegetable with a boatload of mayonaisse then you have a healthy side dish. We had families over for two weeks in a row who actually brought their own dips because--when asked--we replied that we do not "do dips" in our home. They cost upwards of 3.99 a dip and are usually purchased en masse. Lots of money being shelled out in large quantities for--essentially--some old mashed avocado/tomato/eggplant and mayo. ??? Why is this happening?
