British Kids Can't Ketchup

Supermarkets in the Norfolk area will no longer sell ketchup or eggs to minors.

Supermarkets in the Caister area have been asked to quit selling ketchup in squirt bottles to children, following a rise in reports of incidents involving minors using the condiment to deface property. The ban also includes eggs.

While it sounds bizarre, a police spokesman noted that reports of ketchup-related incidents have diminished since the ban went into effect. Though using ketchup to deface property is not technically a criminal offense, it could lead to criminal charges, if damage is caused.
