Reagan's admin said it was a vegetable in school lunches. Obama's admin has said the same regarding the sauce on pizza.



So, ketchup is a veggie.

I used to like to mix them for my fries. I still do but. . .


At any rate, I don't use much ketchup. I prefer hot sauce, BBQ sauce or some other sauce.

Although common, that isn't the only thing. It isn't much different in The Netherlands.

I can take or leave ketchup but mayo is evil.

You know what's good? Peanut butter and miracle whip. Mayo is too greasy for this though.

Miracle Whip is for people with no hope, no faith, Godless people with no morality or ethical standards.

Just sayin.

I was going to respond to this poll, but as usual you have not allowed for contrasting opinion.

Ketchup is one of the four major food groups. Ask my kids.

I mix it with Worcestershire sauce and herbs to make a pretty good and easy dip for seafood, gator and the like.

I just picked up some to go food from a breakfast joint near the Hotel.

They chucked in 4 ketchup packs.

Egads! I exclaimed as I went through the paper bag (plastic bags now are banned here) making sure the order was correct.

Me: What the deuce? who eats ketchup? as I remove ketchuo from the bag and place on counter, I need Tabasco.

Young lady cashier: "To go" Tabasco is not a thing.

Me: yeah, ok, then I just need the (my industry) discount please.

Young lady cashier: Of course, yes sir, I'll grab my manager for the key to put the discount (She walks away)

Me: (walks to the bar and grabs Tabasco, walk back to cashier desk, shake a good amount of Tabasco on Omelet.

Young lady cashier: Oh, wow, you're smart! as she comes back with manager and key in discount.

Me: Aye, I suppose but you're the best. I put the to go food back in bag and ask for the missing biscuit.

Young lady cashier: Did I not put the biscuit in the bag?!?!?! as she grabs the bag and rifles through it.

Me: stares at her.

Young lady cashier: Sorrt about that, I'll be right back with the biscuit.

Me: stares until she walks away and then I debates leaving a tip as she walks away.

Young lady cashier: walks back and puts biscuit in bag.

Me: scribbled a 20% tip despite the less than stellar service. I thank her and head for the door

Young lady cashier: sir, don't forget the ketchup, oh wait, (chuckles) then mimicking my voice "who eats ketchup?!?"

Me: chuckled and then thought about this thread.

Young lady cashier: "To go" Tabasco is not a thing.

Me: yeah, ok, then I just need the (my industry) discount please. Wait. Wait. You didn't address the comment at all? I have seen creepy videos of yer hog in the garage. You didn't address the 'basco dis

Young lady cashier: Of course, yes sir, I'll grab my manager for the key to put the discount (She walks away) I'm immediately alarmed.
I am also hoping you are carrying.


Me: (walks to the bar and grabs Tabasco, walk back to cashier desk, shake a good amount of Tabasco on Omelet.

Young lady cashier: Oh, wow, you're smart! It would be contextually pertinent to disclose any and all demographic observations. as she comes back with manager and key in discount. He's in a white collared shirt and a crappy dark tie.

Me: Aye,you really said, Aye? I suppose but you're the best. I put the to go food back in bag and ask for the missing biscuit. How do you miss a biscuit? If anything you get an extra one just cuz.

Young lady cashier: Did I not put the biscuit in the bag?!?!?! legit as she grabs the bag and rifles through it. oh

Me: stares at her. glares

Young lady cashier: Sorrt about that, I'll be right back with the biscuit.

Me: stares glares until she walks away and then I debates leaving a tip as she walks away. A debate of 0.5 seconds?

Young lady cashier: walks back and puts biscuit in bag.
