For Catsup, Size Does Matter

dabroots graciously shared this and this on the origins of the words catsup and ketchup. He inspired me to do more research.

Maybe it is simply overcompensation because Ketchup gets the pronunciation prize and the market share.
But Catsup has something that Ketchup does not! The Catsup Bottle Water Tower of Collinsville, IL.

I was always a fan of Brooks Hot Catsup growing up.

Mmmmmmmmmm.

I wondered if this was a product Midwesterners would recognize. I like my ketchup or catsup with Tabasco added!

Haha, that is a very funny/odd water tower. I've never heard of that brand before.

Me either until I saw these pictures. I need to do more research on the the tower. It's intriguing.
