    She must have gotten raped by a chihuahua while she was pregnant with you.

    "Word History: The word ketchup exemplifies the types of modifications that can take place in borrowing—both of words and substances. The source of our word ketchup may be the Malay word kēchap, possibly taken into Malay from the Cantonese dialect of Chinese. Kēchap, like ketchup, was a sauce, but one without tomatoes; rather, it contained fish brine, herbs, and spices. Sailors seem to have brought the sauce to Europe, where it was made with locally available ingredients such as the juice of mushrooms or walnuts. At some unknown point, when the juice of tomatoes was first used, ketchup as we know it was born. But it is important to realize that in the 18th and 19th centuries ketchup was a generic term for sauces whose only common ingredient was vinegar. The word is first recorded in English in 1690 in the form catchup, in 1711 in the form ketchup, and in 1730 in the form catsup. All three spelling variants of this foreign borrowing remain current."


    I learned something (useless) today at last.

    Catsup is used more in the American South than in the rest of America, that's all I know. Personally, I say catsup.

    I despise ketchup. I hate it soo much. I am a flavour purist and I can't stand how ketchup overwhelms the original flavour of everything. Some sauces complement to the flavour of something, but ketchup just replaces it.

    Meh, I don't like condiments in general. The only time I like mustard is with hot dogs, the only time I like mayo is with ham (sliced), and the only time I like bbq sauce is with fried chicken. But I just hate ketchup in general. Even on fries. Though sometimes burgers are too dry without them.

    Definitely, I hate most western condiments actually, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, pickles, steak sauce, I don't get how people could eat those things.
