People assume it’s the garlic that repels the vampires. In truth though it’s artificial garlic flavoring. No effect. What actually bothers them is the high fructose corn syrup in the ketchup.
But….That’s the same stuff that’s in my blood…
This reminds me of something from a short story that I wrote a couple of years ago…
A man with wings crashes through the roof of a house, and the man and woman who live there wonder what to do.
“Honey, we’ve got angels again! Go and get me the silver bullets!”
“No, dear, that’s for werewolves!”
“OK then, go get the garlic!”
“No, dear, that’s for vampires!”
“I know, but once he has tried some of your garlic-y food he will never come back here again! So go get the garlic now, honey!”
Unless the Vampire is smart enough to send in a Grilled Hamburger Zombie to feast on the ketchup first….
