This is what Heinz calls "the perfect pouring angle," which will supposedly allow a reasonable flow of ketchup that neither drowns your home fries nor insults them with a single watery trickle of ketchup goo. (Raise your hand if you remember that old rhyme -- "Ketchup bottle, ketchup bottle, none comes out and then a lottle."
