Thirst For Knowledge Tuesday July 18, 2006

Sometimes I curse the net for all its stupidity and then there are days when I stumble across something that completely turns my day around. Today, while trying to unwind, I stumbled across the Soda-Pop blog site Knowledge For I’m sorry but this site is priceless! How was I not aware of such a sharp and cynical website about soda-pop? I’ve always loved random soda-pops. God, I remember being a big supporter of Jones Soda and Snapple back in their hay day. It was such a treasure to find this site, especially since I was in the perfect mood for something a little less bank accounts & future endeavors and a little more Dr.Pepper & Guayaki Yerba Mate.

Here are some of my favorite excerpts:

Let’s say you got a really rock-solid beverage in the market. A distinctive spin on the standard cola formula. A name with personality — a goddamn postgrad degree. – From Dr.Pepper Berries & Cream

One time at Speaker’s Corner in London I listened to this guy who was screaming at the top of his lungs about how if every single person on Earth simultaneously turned their faces away from the sky, the Universe would cease to exist. Drinking a meal replacement beverage is exactly like that. – From Snapple-A-Day Meal Replacement

If you put a gun to my head, I would say: “It’s easily in the top 5 Snapple flavors.” And then if you cocked the hammer I’d be like: “TOP THREE! TOP THREE! OH MY GOD I’M TOO YOUNG TO DIE! SWEET MARY MCGILLICUDDY I CHOOSE LIFE!” and there’d be a big stain down the front of my trousers, but it would all be worth it. Yes it’s that good. – From Snapple Lime Green Tea

I’m still having laughing fits from some of the articles. Plus I also learned that Fanta wasn’t made by the Nazis and that as I predicted Orbitz is still considered one of the largest grocery flops of all time. (For the record I still have three unopened bottles in my apartment.)
