Ketchup Haters


My friend Gary sent me a horrifying article from the New York Times. Apparently New York is lousy with ketchup haters! As Gary says, it's a prejudice. I don't understand it. Why can't we eat something how we like it? 

I sent him an email thanking him for bringing this crime to my attention and for the rad drawing accompanying it. Here it is. Pretty great, right?! 

Gary saysGaryzilla is versatile, he can do anything!  And unlike me, he is NOT a vegetarian, and finds people super tasty :)  But a little ketchup first to take the edge off the Body odor ;)


A quote from the ketchup haters: “If I go to an American restaurant or pub, I have my burger with ketchup,” Greko Chemoul said. “But I don’t think it looks good when I have ketchup on the side of my coq au vin or grilled lamb. It’s a question of design.”

What a self important ass. Also, how do you pronounce coq?

I'm not sure if everyone knows, but I was once the victim of ketchup shaming. Thanks to Cameron I now have a tiny glass ketchup bottle for easier ketchup smuggling. She also bought me ketchup chips! She's awesome. 



I'm not sure what ketchup has ever done to bother people. This is an injustice! I am afraid there is no reasoning with people like Mr. Coq though. Reminds me of the wise, old saying, haters gonna hate.

So who are these supposed Ketchup haters, the one's who eat snails, that fatty goose liver shit, or perhaps those who eat raw meats. I mean really some of that gourmet food would be turned away by my "Psychoratties" and they would eat a mouse. UGH! I love Ketchup, I even add it when I cook certain items, it adds a nice tangy snap to some items.

HAHA! Erin, that is what I'm going to say to the next ketchup shamer. I don't care if they are French or not!
And who's wearing deodorant?! Not you, Frenchie! I know all about your cologne "baths".

Exactly, Maureen! Who are these people to say what's acceptable to eat! I don't try to stop them from being disgusting so they should just let me eat my ketchup in peace!

This is why we don't like you, France!
