"What is the single strangest thing I can do with ketchup?"

Well:
[A] teenage boy rubs ketchup over his face like acne cream, then puts pickles on his eyes. One contestant chugs ketchup straight from the bottle, while another brushes his teeth, washes his hair and shaves his face with Heinz’s product. Often the ketchup looks more like blood than a condiment.

Put it on a hot dog.

I think it's okay for a child to put ketchup on a hot dog. Not an adult though, I agree. I wouldn't put it on a hamburger either. Or on fries, now that I think about it.

I refuse to put ketchup on anything, ever -- especially on my face and in my hair.

Thanks (not) for my first horrible thoughts of the day.

The hot dog itself is a pretty disgusting piece of garbage on a bun, not something to get snooty about as if they're pouring it on filet mignon. On the rare occasion I eat a dog I load it up with every condiment in sight, and most definitely some ketchup.

I think you should only put mustard on a hot dog.

There's no accounting for taste. I like lots of condiments on my hot dogs. Sauerkraut, ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, chopped onions. But hold the chili and cheese.

Strangest thing you can do with ketchup? How about putting it on a toasted cinnamon bagel, topped with a slice of Havarti cheese. Not that I would ever do such a thing, but a certain picky eater I know came up with this combo. I look the other way.

Leave that answer up to the indiscriminate females who have sex with just any old hot-dog.
