    lets you pump your ketchup into little paper condiment cups.

    •  Oh...the paper cups that are so thin and weak (0+ / 0-)

      they tend to collapse or leak through if one isn't immediately using most of the ketchup.  Another weak solution at best. Entrepreneurs in America can surely do better.

      Don't know what happens to those who take it out in a bag. I know some places use a little plastic cup with a peel off cover - similar to what many restaurants have used for jam/jelly for ages.

        what I'm talking about.

        That does sound like a sound engineering solution to ketchup dunking needs, well, as long as it has a non-skid base when on a tray mat or table.  And probably still useful in Floyd's specific but alternative-use parking lot art applications.  As for mine, meh, not so much. Depends on size, form factor, ketchup quantities, amount of pressure required for breaking through peel off lid or collapsing the container, and other variables.  Although that really suggests I shouldn't get stuck in my ways and instead be open to imagine and consider other possible applications as new forms of condiment containment systems are offered.
