Is Ketchup OK? Or do you prefer Catsup? For now we’ll stick with Ketchup…
I’m not trying to come across like a creepy fan here, but I feel like it’s time I came clean with you about a few things.
I have been a huge, HUGE fan of yours for a very very VERY long time, and I think it’s time you understood the extent of my love for you.
Just so you know, I’ve only written a few fan letters in my life. One was to Jonathon Taylor Thomas, one was to Keith Coogan (yes this Keith Coogan) (and it may have been like last year on Myspace) (Because I LOVE him and “the dishes are done, man”) and one was to Seth Green. I was really fucked up watching Robot Chicken when I wrote the Seth Green one, so I’m not even sure it should count. I haven’t EVEN written John Cusack a fan note yet. Oh I’ve sent him a few ambien induced tweets, but still. What I’m trying to say is, Ketchup, is that you are one of the elite.
I’ll be honest with you, it started out as an innocent crush. Growing up, I would casually put you on fish sticks and chicken nuggets. Even now, when the idea of fish sticks pretty much makes me want to hurl, I would probably eat them if there was enough of you smothered on them. I would probably eat anything with enough of you smothered on it. Maybe not snails or poop though. I have to draw the line somewhere.
I know part of the appeal may come from the fact that my grandparents never really approved. On Thanksgiving, my cousins and I would have to hide you under the dinner table because they thought it was innapropriate to eat you at the table. I still have to do the same whenever I go out to eat steak dinners, apparantly its even rude to ask for you. But I do every time.
I’m pretty poor, Ketchup, but no matter how poor I get- I cannot go without you. I always buy the big bottle, though I’ll take you whatever way I can get you. I especially love the Whataburger **fancy ketchup. If it ever came down to it, I might be willing to hold up a Whataburger to get a hold of you.
ODE TO KETCHUP
I put you on chicken, I put you on beans.
I put you on eggs, I put you on greens.
I put you on potatoes-fried, mashed and baked,
I put you on sandwiches and on yummy crab cakes.
I put you on carrots, I put you on rice-
I bet if I put you on cookies it would even taste nice.
Whether it’s Heinz 57, Hunts or store-brand
I’ll always put you first, ahead of any man.
Or on my man? That might be fun too…
But even if I did, I’d only be thinking of you.
I could probably go on here forever, but there are some things I want to save for the bedroom kitchen. I kid. Although, you have may heard that on a recent trip to Uncle Julio’s I told my tamale that I would have sex with it if it had ketchup on it, but I want to take this slow. That’s how much I like you.
That being said, I really hope you’ll get back to me so we can “catch up.”
I’m sure you get that all the time. I really do hope you know I’m being genuine and I’m not sort of tomatHOE.
Ok I’ll stop.
I love you,
CarissaJaded (your biggest fan)
I know this might be a little weird for you, but I also love cheese and tabasco sauce so I was thinking that maybe one of these days… nevermind.
**If you do not know about Whataburger fancy ketchup please send me your address and I will send you one. I’m serious. In fact I’ll do a giveaway. Yeah…. comment here and one of you will get a fancy ketchup in the mail.
**I’m serious about the ketchup, but there will be an ACTUAL giveaway later this week. It’s supercool and I’m really excited about it so stay tuned.
