Comment of the Day: The Sacrilege of Ketchup on a Burger
Here on Eating Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog, and our Comment of the Day honors the best of the bunch.
Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.
In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.

Albert Nurick chimed in on why Texans do this:
On a high-quality burger, less is more.
Ketchup and mustard can hide all sorts of woes; neither are required if the beef is juicy, the right amount of cheese is present, and the veggies are fresh.
When I want to evaluate a burger joint, I order a cheeseburger with lettuce, onion, and pickles. The flavor of the meat is front and center.
Make sense to us!
