Stars n' Stripes

Dollar Tree brand orange cola. "Stars 'n Stripes". Really patriotic. AND comes in a 3-liter bottle. How can Joe the Student go wrong with this patriotic bargain?

And yet, ever hearing whispers of "waste my dollar store... waste my dollar store..."

I concede. There is no hint of fruit of any kind (not even oranges) in this orange soda.

And yet, Dr. Stripes is always ripe for one's drinking pleasure, especially with a little cranberry or grapefruit juice.

I don't care what it's called. Americans only drink and make soda in 2-liter bottles. 3-liter bottles of soda belong solely in Mexico and Canada. Get your odd numbered liters out of my even numbered country. 1776. 2008. Logic---use some.

I'm afraid you are sorely mistaken, my friend.

1776 is divisible by 3.

Also, where do 1-liter bottles fall into this? These have been common in the U.S. for years now.

The current sizes are:
8 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz, 20 oz, 24 oz, 1 liter, 2 liter, 3 liter

In fountain drinks:
8 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz, 20 oz, 22 oz, 24 oz, 32 oz, 44 oz, 54 oz, 64 oz

Remember Ben that America is a diverse nation.

In this case, 3 liter bottles are an underground plague upon all beverages and consumers in this great land, and they need to take a hike along with some other diverse things I don't like. Build a wall to keep em' out.

Plus, when I said use some logic I didn't mean it. And logic means nothing to this blog anyway.

Ben said...

Stuff your logic in a sack, mister.

Hey we should go to Mexico sometime we can be like slave buddies!

Mexico? When I get my license renewed I'll make sure to pay extra for the special ID card that allows me to easily cross the border. I'd make a great mule (or, "burro")
