Marriage 201, Lecture 339: Moral issues

SH: Wait! How come you get to buy orange juice and I'm not supposed to get ketchup?

Me: Because the juice was on the bargain counter for 99 cents, we don't have any, sometimes you like orange juice and we have a chest freezer now. We have seven years worth of ketchup in this house.

SH: Well, I want to keep the new ketchup and get rid of the old stuff. Look! The old ketchup has high fructose corn syrup in it! The new ketchup doesn't have any. By buying the stuff without the corn syrup in it, I am taking a stand against high fructose corn syrup.

Me: Can't you take a stand against it by just not buying the ketchup that does have it?

I'm with SH... that ketchup from Memphis is too old.
