The answer Douglas has given is perfectly correct!
"The Dutch also put tomato ketchup on their French fries".

The gentlemen are right! And I do, as well. Also, I dip my chips in tomato ketchup.

I prefer to dip my fries in mayonnaise, which is unheard of in the USA.
Whenever I order mayonnaise for my fries in a US restaurant, I usually have to explain that I īm not joking and then they often end-up bringing me Miracle Whip instead of mayonnaise. For some reason a lot of US restaurants seem to think that Miracle Whip (a salad dressing that is way too sweet for my liking) is a perfect substitute for mayonnaise. In some cases they even argue with me that it IS mayonnaise. :)

Actually, Belgians and the Dutch usually put mayonnaise on their French fries, not Ketchup....

I wonder if Miracle Whip is anything like salad cream, which is wonderful... Yes, continentals dip their chips in mayonnaise, which is considered quite smart/cool in my neck of the woods. (NE England)

SVOMPT: Subject, Verb, Object, Mode, Position, Time
This is the correct structure, according to me.
