I presume that if it's fancy, it's spelled catsup.

During the Great Depression, only rich people could afford Ketchup, thus it was dubbed fancy to cover up for the fact that it is just tomato paste vinegar and sugar.

Here's a link to a very interesting article that appeared in The New Yorker in September, 2004:


The Ketchup Conundrum

Mustard now comes in dozens of varieties.
Why has ketchup stayed the same?

Variety is the spice of life...the food industry figured it out finally. Different people have different tastes.

I prefer a low / no sugar spicy catsup....

If you go to the store and see ketchup with a nice going to church type dress on, that would be fancy ketchup. On the other hand, it you see one named Robert Bob, sporting a wife beater, drinking old mill and living in a trailer, that would be white trash ketchup. Hope that helps? :)

According to my extensive research, Archie F. Swin, there is no discernable difference between plain and fancy catsup.

My own theory is that, because fancy catsup often comes in those little sealed packets, the term "fancy" refers to the skill set required to obtain the contents without squirting the sh*t all over your shirt.

After the last election cycle I won't buy Heinz at ALL.

so the difference is that fancy ketchup is made from tomato harvested by non-immigrants?

I love ketchup -- it's about the only condiment I use (don't like mustard, mayo, relish, etc.). I bought some ketchup at an Amish roadside store a couple of years ago -- that shit was AWESOME! Unlike any ketchup I've ever had, or had since.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street - a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato.

Baby tomato starts lagging behind.

Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooshes him... and says, Catch up.

Baby tomato starts eating some candy. This angers the poppa tomato no end because it is well known that the tomatos have diabetes in their family and should avoid sweets at all costs.

So poppa tomato goes over to baby tomato and whacks him up side the red head with the 2x4 he happens to be carrying for cases just like this.

"Where did you get that!", poppa tomato said.

"From the Secretary of State, Dad!", cried the little baby tomato.

"The Secretary of State! What is it?" said the now incredulous poppa tomato.

"A Condi Mint."

Three tomatoes are walking down the street - a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato.

It is a very cold day and baby tomato starts shivering uncontrollably. This pisses off the poppa tomato who begins striking momma tomato unmercifully with a wrench. This is because the tomato family are Italian immigrants who are new to America and it is well known that Italians are highly emotional and quite volatile.

"Whata you whackin'a me fora!", momma tomato said.

"Becausa I tolda you to bringa coata fora baby tomato!", screamed poppa tomato.

"Stopa whackin'a mea anda I'lla givea hima my coata!" said momma tomato.

"You gotta coata?" asked the incredulous poppa tomato.

"Yesa. I gotta twoa!" said momma tomato through her broken red teeth.

"Whata are theya?" asked poppa tomato.

"Shawlsa."

Okay, okay. How about this one?

Three tomatoes are walking down the street - a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato.

It is coal country and many of the mine workers are on break and having lunch. Baby tomato trips on a pile of tools one of the miners left lying in the street and, as luck would have it, one of the tools is rammed up his little red butt.

"What is that in his butt?", screamed momma tomato.

"I don't know", replied poppa tomato, "but it looks like an ... "

"Ass Pick".

Okay, so that one was bad too. One more try.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street - a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato.

Coming the other way down the street was the famous football player, Lawrence Taylor. Suddenly, a great big bug flew up and stung baby tomato on the a$$! Baby tomato started screaming and crying and Lawrence Taylor saw the whole thing.

"What was that?", said Taylor.

"I don't know", replied poppa tomato, "but I think it was a ... "

"Bee LT".

Anyway, I finally had to just give up. I was starting to feel pretty sorry for baby tomato as well as all the Planeteers unfortunate enough to read them.
