The Friday Kethcup

Ketchup is, of course, a tomato-based sauce commonly used to compliment various dishes, especially in American cuisine. But do you know how its made? Well I’m going to tell you. You take tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, salt, spices, onion, and garlic. The more ketchup you want to make, the more ingredients you use. You take the tomatoes and put them in a bowl, then put that bowl in the microwave. Turn the microwave on and melt the tomatoes. This makes the tomatoes into tomato liquid. Then you take the bowl out of the microwave and put all the other ingredients in. Shake the bowl up and down without a cover to mix everything up. After that, you’re almost done. Take your feet and step in the bowl to squish everything together. Don’t wash your feet first. When your feet are totally covered with the mixture, then you’re done. Wipe the stuff off your feet and put it in a bottle. That’s ketchup. Throw anything left in the bowl away because that’s not ketchup. You’ve now made ketchup. It’s the Friday Ketchup.

Weekend Drink: The Andre the Giant

To all of our of-age readers… 

This weekend’s drink was inspired by professional French wrestler André René Roussimoff, better known as Andre the Giant or Fezzik, the rhyming giant of Princess Bride. In addition to being an entertainer, Mr. Roussimoff was also a talented drinker. Some claim that it would take him a barrel of beer to get drunk. (Ed. I have a hunch that his large stature was a contributing factor: Andre the Giant stood at over seven feet tall and weighed close to 450 pounds.)

The Andre:

  • Procure a barrel.
  • Fill said barrel with beer.
  • Drink.*

*Do not attempt to finish the barrel by yourself.
