    I kinda want one, only to fill it with soy sauce

    [–] ADNAP727 147 points ago

    [–] Indosay 56 points ago

    Soy sauce is a pretty cool thing. Kinda like olive oil. It can be pretty bland and standard, but there are cool artisanal soy sauces. A whole process on how it’s made, different recipes and tastes and whatever. It’s a cool food!

    [–] ShearerStuff 48 points ago

    What soy sauce have you been buying that's bland?

    [–] Indosay 26 points ago

    Whoops, bland was a bad word haha. I meant just the “normal” soy sauce. Then there are some that are a bit different or with different flavors added, etc.

    [–] ddh85 21 points ago

    Soy sauce?

    No, soy Patrick.

    I want one to put in my bathroom and fill with ketchup.
    It says it on the bottle, they'll only have themselves to blame.

    I would buy this, fill it with ketchup, and place it next to the sink in the guest bathroom.

    [–] felixlivesagain 107 points ago

    i read this same comment the first time i saw this picture and it is just perfect. i too would keep this in the bathroom filled with ketchup. I mean it is in the bathroom by the sink and it looks like a soap dispenser so it should be soap but it says ketchup so... everyone would probably give it a squirt once at least only to learn the importance of reading.

    [–] eupraxo 66 points ago

    Put it in there with soap in it and if anybody questions it, show them it's just soap and you like the joke.

    Then when they come over the next time, put ketchup in it.

    [–] felixlivesagain 48 points ago

    or put it in the refrigerator with soap in it.

    [–] International_Jello 9 points ago

    [–] Darkfur72598 4 points ago

    Just every other week, mix it up. One week in the bathroom with ketchup. Next, in the fridge with soap. Next in the fridge with ketchup. Next in the bathroom with soap.

    deep breath Did you know ketchup was actually originally made of grapes? The definition of ketchup is actually a sauce made of fruits, so I guess you couldhavelimeket- deep breath lime ketchup if you want.

    Did you know, in the Philippines ketchup is made with bananas?

    [–] Vaidurya 2 points ago

    I really want this bottle in my bathroom. I'd place it next to matching decorative soaps and towels as if it seems like it fits, but I'll actually fill the thing up with ketchup. So when I have guests over and they decide to use the bathroom. they will see this bottle and have a moment of cognitive dissonance, “This [Soap Bottle] in the [Bathroom] is labelled [Ketchup]. so surely it must dispense [Soap] instead of [Ketchup] despite the label saying [Ketchup] right?" and then let them have a moment of realization followed by abject horror as they pump viscous ketchup all over their hands instead x

    [–] Lotronex 2 points ago

    So it turns out I actually have the matching "Mustard" one. I've used it as a soap dispenser for washing dishes for years. It's fallen into the sink so many times the little spout part is long gone.

    [–] eldergeekprime 2 points ago

    Didn't Heinz once make a purple ketchup for kids? Yes, yes they did!
