You may not know this, but people have ketchup takes. People have hot ketchup takes. People’s ketchup takes are so hot that our own Brian Grubb — ambassador of all things rational — had to write a piece validating the desires of certain people to put ketchup on their hot dogs.
It’s not just a few people here and there, either. The ketchup hate is bigger than that. It’s widespread. Anti-ketchup crusaders rove the badlands of the internet, mocking anyone who likes the red stuff (particularly when it’s on hot dogs).
Just look at Thrillist exhibiting zero chill about the world’s best fake blood/condiment:
“Is ketchup on a hot dog ever acceptable?” Bourdain asked POTUS as they slurped noodles in Vietnam like old backpacking buddies.
