Whatever turns you on.
The idea of mixing mustard with ketchup on a tube steak strikes Opus as “stunningly original”, and inspires in him feelings of love? That boy needs some ……………… change ………….. in his life.
Loved Opus as the blinking innocent in the 1980s. Not a huge fan of the Opus artwork as self-aware vaudeville Garfield, complete with over-the-top googly eyes. The (great) writing deserves better.
The upside-down squeeze bottle revolutionized the condiment industry, providing the utility and ease of use of the commercial condiment pump with the easy portability of the consumer sized bottle. A true innovation of stellar proportions.
Revealing the big mysteries of the universe are great, but why did Opus put ketchup and mustard on different ends of the hot dog?
Next up – wine in a box!
There is no ketchup in our home. Not allowed!
Ketchup is for french fries (or tater tots) and NOTHING ELSE!
Great sound effect in panel 1.
Are we done with ketchup-vs-mustard war? If so, I would like to point out that there have been a series of hadron colliders at CERN since 1971, so it’s hardly a new idea.
I used to put ketchup on my salad. It started in high school just to freak people out, but then I grew to like it (ketchup isn’t that far from Thousand Island dressing, after all). When I’d go to a restaurant, I’d order salad plain, and when it came, I’d ask, “How is your ketchup today?” When the waiter brought the ketchup, I’d start doing wine shtick with it (“Oh—’57! Excellent year!”; taking the cap off the bottle and sniffing it, etc.). But then I saw the sugar content in ketchup, and I’ve never liked mustard, so no condiments for me at the moment (or salad dressings, either.)
Why has no one mentioned tomatoes? With all its sugar, ketchup is best used only when you are out of tomatoes, like in April, when they are too expensive. And Heinz doesn’t make the best mustard. Ask the German pavilion at Epcot, or Fuddruckers (World’s Greatest Hamburgers), or the Central Park Boathouse Restaurant in NYC, they all serve Gulden’s brown & spicy.
Only outdone by peanut butter and jelly in the same container.
To each his own. Oliver gets all teary over Hadron. Opus is enamored of condiment bottles with the opening on the bottom.
Who says romance is dead?
As a three-summer veteran of an H.J. Heinz ketchup plant (12 hours a day, 7 days a week), I applaud Opus’ choice of condiments.
No more ANTICIPATION.
BTW, Del Monte is better than Heinz, but I don’t think they have the upside down bottles.
Did they skip the end of the lair arc?
What happened to one of the best panels ever…the end of the lair arc?
And it could have been in Texas, but the narrow business minded govt said “NO”.
