Restaurant in Florida Won't Give You Ketchup If You're Over 10 Years Old


UPI – “No ketchup for you!” Fort Myers restaurant Mad Fresh Bistro has banned ketchup for all their patrons over the age of 10. “Chef reserves the right to refuse service of ketchup,” reads the menu. Mad Fresh Bistro’s logic is they season their food well and it should not be smothered by the processed, tomato-based condiment. “We know, we know. People love their ketsup. But honestly, be ready. If you’re over 10 years old, ketsup will NOT be provided. Similarly, salt won’t be making an appearance next to your meal, either. We simply ask that you trust us. We know what we’re doing!”

You wanna know the kind of people I’ll never understand? The kind that get pissed off at you for drizzling ketchup over your order of fries and then bitch that they can’t eat them anymore. I don’t know what possesses certain people to get so high and mighty when it comes to ketchup. Aside from the weirdos who put ketchup on their pretzels, I have nothing against anyone else’s ketchup using tendencies. So this Mad Fresh Bistro (awful name by the way), can go kick rocks somewhere. Here’s a little thought for the hipsters in the kitchen over there. Maybe your food sucks. Maybe you’re not the next Top Chef. Maybe you’re just an overly pretentious bag of dicks. Just because you added the word “Bistro” to the end of your name doesn’t mean you’re in France and have the power to deny people of their god given rights to ketchup. That’s not how it works around here. So from this point moving forward, I’ll be boycotting Mad Fresh Bistro in Fort Myers, Florida until they give the people the ketchup they deserve. I hope to gain your support.

[Full Disclosure: I only put ketchup on my eggs, fries, and meatloaf. Not a huge ketchup guy but this is a fight worth fighting anyway.]
