Urgent : Does Miracle Whip go bad?

I urgently need an answer to that question.

Please, no joking, I will be relying on the consensus here.

We're talking about a quarter of a jar that's been hiding in the back of the refrigerator for, oh, maybe a year...or two.

Is there a way to tell if it has "gone bad"? Or does Miracle Whip not go bad, like Cool Whip or "cheese food" in a pressurized can or an unopened package. I mean, when did anyone ever eye a Lantz cracker sandwich and think, "That cheese must have gone bad by now." It does, after all, have "Miracle" in the name, right? Does it have a half life of, say, three years? Three thousand years?

And, if it has gone bad, will it hurt you? A test indicates that it has a slightly rancid taste, but is okay mixed with some garlic chili sauce (the Vietnamese stuff with the chicken on the label). So, forget what it tastes like, am I going to end up with some antibiotic resistant brain-eating bacteria while retching on the floor of the emergency room to get my stomach pumped?

Am I going to regret this?

1. "Go bad"? It starts off Bad!

I like unsweetened mayonnaise, myself!

3. I mean "spoiled"

I bought it as a joke one time when my wife had put mayo on the shopping list for a recipe she was trying out. I bought a little bar of it and said "here's the mayo". Since then, it's been a long time since anyone touched it except for me a couple of times in ccondiment desperation.
