Behold The #KetchupBlackMarket . Yes, It's A Thing.


By now, you’ve heard about the growing ketchup shortage that’s sucking the condiment-loving soul from our nation. It’s gotten enough attention that a “black market” has developed for ketchup packets…which are at a premium. A quick search on eBay shows over 150 listings for them, some asking for over $100 for just one packet.

On Scranton’s Facebook Marketplace, another guy’s asking for $1,200 for just three packets.

Just because you ask doesn’t mean you’ll get, but you’ve got to admire the cojones it takes to ask that much for something so stupid.
