Ketchup Packets

We all eat fast food sometimes. Some of it's better than others, and sometimes, convenience is the only thing that matters - food shouldn't just be fuel, but alas, sometimes reality rears its ugly head and it happens.

So: we've all had the misfortune of using ketchup packets at one point or another - they're a pain at best, and impossible to use in a car. Heinz announced today that they've come up with a solution:

While I can appreciate the kind-of-nifty option to squeeze or dunk, I am befuddled at how it took Heinz 40-odd years to figure out that maybe, just maybe, a thing to dunk in might be a useful idea. And the squeeze option seems pretty useless, doesn't it? Does anyone ever get BBQ / Sweet & Sour / Buffalo / etc sauce and wish they could squeeze it?
