A Base with a Cup for Barfing

I stumbled upon this article while catching up on the day's news on and I already know I will have nightmares about it.

I hate ketchup. Despise it. Loathe, abhor. I think it is the grossest thing I have ever smelled, touched and tasted in my life. I am not exaggerating when I say that I legit GAG when I am around ketchup. I cannot share a plate of fries with someone who puts ketchup on the plate - get your own. One morning when I was out to brunch, I started gagging at the table because I could see the bus boy refilling the ketchup bottles - tranferring half-filled bottles of ketchup to another bottle to make them full. Oh. My. Gosh. It was repulsive. I even went so far with my hatred as to create a Facebook group called "I Hate Ketchup" (not joking).

Therefore, you will understand my sheer horror when I read that Heinz has come out with a new packet for their to-go ketchup. "The new design has a base that's more like a cup for dipping and also a tear-off end for squeezing, plus it holds three times as much ketchup than a traditional packet." A BASE with a CUP for dipping? That's heinous.
