Wikipedia: Ketchup
Ketchup is a table sauce. Although original recipes used egg whites, mushrooms, oysters, grapes, mussels, or walnuts, among other ingredients, the unmodified modern recipe refers to tomato ketchup in the USA.

Tomato ketchup is a sweet and tangy sauce made from tomatoes, sugar, and vinegar, with seasonings and spices. The spices and flavors vary, but commonly include onions, allspice, coriander, cloves, cumin, garlic, and mustard, and sometimes include celery, cinnamon, or ginger.

Wikipedia: Sriracha
Sriracha (Thai: ศรีราชา, pronounced [sǐːrāːt͡ɕʰāː]; English: /sɪˈrætʃə/ or /sɪˈrɑːtʃə/) is a type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt.

I dot give a fuck what anyone says, bagels with cream cheese and a splash of sriracha (hipster ketchup) is just pure $$ in the morning!

According to a #Gawker comment, #Sriracha is hipster ketchup.  Confused since Sriracha is, by definition, not cool.

From ‘Rooster Sauce’ to ‘Hipster Ketchup’
Sriracha watchers chart condiment’s rise as retail bellwether

Apr. 14, 2015
ROCKVILLE, Md.—Huy Fong Foods’ “Rooster Sauce,” a Southeast Asian style hot sauce with beguiling garlic notes, simmered in the foodservice marketplace for decades as an Asian restaurant (and kitchen staff) favorite. But beginning in 2008 came shoutouts from Gourmet, The New York Times and Bon Appétit (which crowned sriracha as 2010 Ingredient of the Year). A heat wave of sriracha, dubbed “hipster ketchup,” followed, said Packaged Facts.
