Those who speak Cree, an Algonquian language spoken by 117,000 in Canada, are getting a laugh at a new Heinz product called "Mayochup,"

Mayochup is a sauce which combines ketchup and mayonnaise and is commonly known as "fry sauce" in Utah.

But when translated to Cree, Mayochup can mean "s**tfaced," or "s**t is on my face," according to the Calgary Sun.

BC radio host Waubgeshig Rice, Grand Chief Jonathan Solomon of the Mushkegowuk council in Northern Ontario first pointed out the translation in a Tweet.

Solomon told the National Post:

We the Cree people are laughing about it because of what it means in our language. It’s kinda funny when you think about it. If I ate it and have some on my face, then I [am] Mayuchup/S**tface.
