generally agree
it can be a useful ingredient in making other stuff

... and sometimes salmon patties are a perfect vehicle for ketchup, as are fried chicken livers

To diss catsup/ketchup is to diss secret sauce---the hamburger's pal 8O
Also it is a component of Russian dressing, which is the very essence of a memorable Ruben sandwich.

I can eat ketchup, but I don't prefer it, to me condiments are what you need when you fail at cooking, and while I fail at a lot of things, I know how to cook.

My wife however, is a different story, I nearly called off our engagement when I found out she put ketchup on steak, ON STEAK!, though, she grew up even poorer than me, and I found out her idea of steak was different than what I could cook. She does not put ketchup on steak anymore. She does still use it on other things.
C. S. Lewis Quote: “A pipe gives a wise man time to think and a fool something to stick in his mouth.” Personally, I tend to gravitate towards the second option of those, but at least when my pipe is in my mouth I cannot say anything to add confirmation to that opinion.

I use more ketchup now than I ever did as a kid. Often, it's in the form of cocktail sauce. That stuff's good on everything.

We use it on potatoe chips. I learned from my father to douse the stuff with copious amounts of black pepper. Try it. You'll thank me later.

If you dislike ketchup I think the next logical question is “Are you now, or have you ever been a member of the communist party?”

No. Submarine Service. But the USNR had a similar ethos and we guyed the crud outta them.

I love you, brother. This is good natured ribbing. I'm old and fat and useless and the future is yours and I thank you for serving in the line and smelling powder. I couldn't do your job nor could I tell you how to do it.

Grateful you're there, Sir.

No offense taken! If I wasn’t as dumb as I am I would have been a naval officer. They didn’t want me. The Army asked “can you carry a ruck?” Submarines are bad ass! Earning your dolphins is super cool and thank you for your service!

Ok on a cheese burger with all the fixings, NEVER on a hotdog, and maybe in a pinch to dip a fry in but come on people there are so many better things to dip fries in.

Honestly though, since I’ve had kids I realize how silly ketchup is. It’s basically red sugar. My kids will just eat ketchup by itself if I’m not watching.

I don't know, ketchup is red and commies are reds so . . . . it may be the other way around.
