Republicans dip freedom fries in "W Ketchup", not Heinz

Story can be found here.

Snippet:

Quote:
WASHINGTON, (AFP) - Americans allergic to the subtle Democratic flavor of Heinz ketchup can now plunge their "freedom fries" into a 100-percent guaranteed, patriotic alternative: "W Ketchup."

"You don't support Democrats. Why should your ketchup?" says the W Ketchup Internet site wketchup.com, which promises a totally US-made condiment, right down to the bottle.

It's probably the only Republican thing that's still American-made. They were too busy outsourcing all the rest of the employment in the U.S. to care. Now if only they actually gave half a damn about this nation, outside of petty swipes at Kerry...

Remember when the company making the GWB hats or T-Shirts was acually using slave labour in Burma, Doh'. I weep at that not this.

"W Ketchup comes in one flavor: American."

what exactly does "American" taste like?

Is it bitter from governmental corruption?
does it leave a bad taste...like partisan bickering?
does it taste like the salty tears of the disillusioned
like blood?
like oil?
maybe like money, in honor of the insane amount of money spent on elections...
how bout like sweat, in honor of all the over-worked and severely underpaid blue collar people breaking their backs just to survive...

At one time I would have maybe asked if it tasted sweet like knowing you are free to do and say as you wish.....ah, but then came the patriot act.....maybe it tastes like artificial sweetener then....looks sweet, should be sweet but leaves a funny taste after you swallow it blindly.

No, I don't think I will be trying "American" flavored ketchup

This is ridiculous. Do names really change things? No.

Capitalism at its best. Find a niche and fill it.

I think this is what is great about America. Seriously, I hope people from both parties come up with inventive things like this. Yeah, it's lame but it is also humorous. Where has everyone's sense of humor gone?
