Ketchup or Catsup?

I sometimes wonder if ketchup and catsup are different. Currently we have ketchup in the fridge, Hunt's, produced by ConAgra foods. Main ingredients include tomatoes, corn syrup, vinegar, onion and garlic powder and NATURAL FLAVORS. I read somewhere in a book that natural flavors can include rodent hair, droppings, etc. They are natural.

Anyway, even though I've learned about the natural flavors I still use ketchup on occasion. I personally feel that there are some things you should NOT put ketchup on. These would include eggs(any style), waffles, chicken strips or nuggets, etc. Today a generally good student got in trouble for mixing ketchup and cheese. In our cafeteria we put a HALT on behavior generally reserved for boys that includes mixing 2 to 3 drinks or putting food in drinks. But today a nice young girl mixed ketchup and cheese. Was she acting like a boy? Or was this a normal food behavior for her?

What do you put ketchup(catsup) on?

The world's tallest Catsup bottle is located in Collinsville, Illinois, just outside of St. Louis.
