The Singing Midget or the porn guy? I do kind of like Porn Guy's sweater ...

Which brings up another question ... can you fit more midget porn on the 1.44 MB floppy since the images are smaller?

I bet it's the same day you realized that the "57" on a ketchup bottle is where it is for a very good reason.

Because McDonalds is feuding with Heinz so it cannot offer their dip and squeeze packets. Other chains (other than Chick-fil a) probably donít want to spend the extra money to offer them.

I didnít even know it was a thing until just now. I had to re-read it several times to make sure I wasnít missing something.

Tradition for starters. The packets predate the tubs as a common container, at least to my recollection. Food cost control is likely another. Customers are perhaps less likely to take way too many if they are a little more onerous to open. Lastly, ketchup may also be more susceptible to oxidation than a lot of other sauces so those foil-based packets are necessary. Note, for example, that mustard and relish usually come in clear plastic packets while ketchup (and other tomato-based sauces like Taco Bell sauces) still usually come in foil/plastic packets, which I know are more expensive to make.

Yeah, who doesn't enjoy a good ketchup rub?

I was curious, so I looked it up on Wikipedia:

According to one popular folk remedy, repeatedly hitting the "57" mark on a glass Heinz ketchup bottle makes the ketchup pour out more quickly and easily. The New York Times suggests this is a matter of intentional design, with Heinz having placed the "57" mark on that particular spot of the bottle as a target for consumers to hit. According to the Heinz website, only 11% of people know this trick.[1]

So next time you see someone bash the bottom of the bottle to get the ketchup to come out, and before it starts spraying everywhere including on you, you tell him/her about the "57" trick.

Iíve never tried the ď57Ē trick even though Iíve known about it for years. I donít think Iíve used anything other than a squeeze bottle for ketchup in at least 10 years.
