“I pledge allegiance to the sauce that graces the dogs of America.” Johnny Rockets on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade is putting crappy ketchup to good use this coming Monday, bringing in local Madonnari artist Cynthia Kostylo to construct a replica of Mt. Rushmore out of Heinz ketchup (damn, that Warren Buffet sure knows how to move weight). We’re guessing the mural isn’t exactly to scale, but the public still invited to come scrutinize the piece, grab some free french fry samples, and make a little ketchup art of their own from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M. on President’s Day. Who knows? You just might discover that you’re the John Constable of condiments.
