A Nation of Ketchup Lovers

According to a recent issue of Bon Appetit magazine, the average American consumes 3 bottles of ketchup each year. Eeh gads! Who are these people? I doubt I go through a single bottle in a two-year period.

I don't get the use of ketchup on eggs, and the only time I drizzle french fries in ketchup is if the fries really aren't that good.

Here's a weird side note. I read wikipedia's listing for "ketchup," which states that ketchup is "also known as Red Sauce . . ." Huh? I've never heard that usage before.

It's difficult to imagine any purpose for fried calamari if ketchup had not been invented.

Oh, how unkind to calamari you are.
