"Catsup" is an ugly word...

...for something edible.

"Catsup," as far as I'm concerned, isn't even needed. Was ketchup trademarked by somebody, like Dumpster? (Really. Means that the word has to be capitalized. greygirlbeast had used the word in the submitted draft of her novel Low Red Moon and when her publisher said she had to capitalize it, she used another word. Was annoyed, because to her "Dumpster" just doesn't look right, but she preferred to change it instead of using what could be called a "corporate" word.)

*Googles* Apparently not. Ketchup and catsup just exist, though Spell Check recognizes "ketchup" and not "catsup."

Maybe I don't like the implied "made with cats!" in the one version of the word.

This entry brought to you by food. I've eaten well today. When I've been hungry, I've been able to take care of that. I hope you can, too.
