Oh, yes--you're right!  Now I THINK I remember: I ordered ketchup AND
mustard to add to the "special sauce" (which I liked fine), and the ketchup
was no problem because they had it in those little plastic envelopes, but
the only mustard they had was that McNuggets dip.  I do remember
complaining about the very idea of a burger joint without mustard.
