Casey writes about this sign, which was

…posted in the restaurant in which I work. Servers had gotten lazy and started putting ketchups where they didn’t belong, and a manager got fed up with this. So, he posted this sign. It’s a really good thing our managers aren’t English majors or rocket scientists. We’d all be screwed.

  1. Can ketchup even be made into a plural? Isn't it a mass noun. You can have more than one ketchup bottle or ketchup packet, but can you have more than one ketchup?

  2. What Mathman said! Mind you, I used to work with engineers who kept writing about ‘equipments’, so maybe the language is going that way. The apostrophe still sucks though.

  3. Darla- We put a note next to it, and both got ripped down so fast I couldn't get a pic of them, that said "Ketchup's what?" 🙂
