A recent posting had me thinking about ketchup packets. Anyone who has walked in a fast food parking lot has seen what happens when these things get run over. They shoot far. This property, and also the fact that they are often provided free, would make condiment packets good ammo for a specially designed sauce gun.

The sauce gun would pressurize the packet and shoot sauce 20-30 feet. It could be loaded with individual packets, but better would be the packets still joined together in a long strip. The strips would be worn by the sauce gunner like a bandolier, and fed into the gun on full auto mode. The sauce gun could fire any condiment in these packets: ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc. Sauce gun would be "useful" for fast food operations where the saucer must stand 20-30 feet from the burger, but would be most useful for battles against opponents armed with shaving cream, supersoakers, perfume etc.

       Terribly wastful when a squirtgun can simply be loaded with the condiment in question. Bone.

       I would buy one...now where to get the packets of ketchup still connected? [+]   

       squirt gun vs high pressure glob of ketchup from a packet. packets of ketchup are free and available anywhere in most of the industrial world. The sheer novelty and excess of it all makes it worth while.   

       I think a double barreled shot gun model would be nice. One that shot two packets per barrel and ejected the empty ones in dramatic fashion.

       bubble wrap filled with ketchup would make the long winter evenings pass quicker...

       Single-serving for fries or chips, one poke per bubble?
