Diluted Ketchup


As amusing as this is, it is NOT funny. I had to do a quick Google search to find out what a jerry can is. Why would you store ketchup in a jerry can? I’ve seen ketchup come in big industrial, gallon-size containers – like those big pickle jars you see in a deli – but never in a “jerry can.”

Here’s a visual image you will not want to retain: Just how does one pee in a jerry can? No. I just am not going to think about this.

    'The Saudi Gazette' insists that one must log in to view their pages...alas there is no log in function. What gives? Why put ketchup in a jerrycan? To go with meatloaf in aerosol???
    Am confused....

  5. Well, well, well, NS - that was interesting. You're right! I was able to get to the article thru archives:

    http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=16621&Itemid=146

    "DURING an inspection tour of a restaurant in Ahad Rufaidah by the Civil Defense, Staff Sergeant Sa’eed Mohammed Bin Shuwaih caught a Filipino worker urinating in a ketchup jerry can. The worker was caught in the presence of all the officials and he was handed over to the police after the municipality closed down the restaurant."

    And that's the story.

    Where did this Saudi Gazette "log in" thing come from, I wonder?!? I'll have to recheck this. Thanks much for letting me know!

  6. NS - All fixed! Again, thanks.

    HNAV - Were you able to get to the article?

    Don't know what happened. Can easily be explained by the fact that, technically, I AM challenged!

    Thanks Sabra, I have viewed it at last, which brought a question to mind: has any of you ever read Anthony Bourdain's book "Kitchen Confidential"? If not, let me tell you that after reading it, the 'ketchup bottle' incident will seem very mild indeed!
