I think in general it means being given an unpleasant task, but of course you can read into that what you want smile

Fried egg, bacon, & sausage 'Banjo'* with ketchup (more often just called 'tomato sauce' here) from a roadside trailer is a staple in the UK. Though Real Men eschew ketchup and slaver the wad with brown sauce.

Interesting origin of the name. By brown sauce, are you referring to HP sauce ?


It kinda grabs you by the boo boo. Don't it ?

I would say that he is. I always refer to it as 'brown' sauce rather than HP.

It's good stuff. I thought he might mean Worcestershire sauce. Also great, but I wouldn't put it on a sandwich. Too messy, but it may cause you to play the banjo hahaha

Germans, the first condiment that comes to mind is mustard. For Bratwurst. I did live there 4 years, as a child.

Seems to me like a marketing ploy like from a competing condiment like a hot sauce manufacturer.All you need is one person to start something and it goes viral and then the whole world believes.Ketchup is for kids and is low class but yet EVERYONE loves it.You are ridiculed if you have it at the table BUT you bring a hot sauce and "nowadays" you a man of the times!
