Here in the Netherlands we've got a kind of yogurt-mayonaise called ''yofresh'' and that's the one I really love on my fries.
And the macdonald's sauce we have here, mayonaise with green herbs is delicious too. Sometimes I like ketchup aswell, but as an exeption.

Besides, here in Holland the mayonaise isn't as sour as the kind you guys have in america, I personally think ours is better. I don't like the sour stuff at all with my fries.

Hmm...Ketchup sure has a strange name.

Why on earth is squashed tomatoes called ketchup?!


(please forgive me, my work gave me 4 days off and all of my friends have full time jobs so I'm stuck alone for a few days. that's why I'm posting this completely useless nonsense)
Ok...I know you weren't really looking for an answer, but when people ask "why" anything..I NEED TO KNOW! LOL, so thought I'd share. This is what I found:

In Indonesia, soy sauce is known as kecap (a catchall term for fermented sauces), from which according to one theory the English word "ketchup" is derived.

Apparently, Kecap is a type of Indonesian soy sauce, and somehow that turned into "ketchup" which was a word used for all sauces, and in the early 1900's, ketchup was the term used for what we know today..the tomatoes, vinegar, spices and such.

There's a lot more to it on wikipedia if you want to look, I just kinda of very briefly summarized.
