    Damn straight. I only make it to Stephenville twice a year, but I always make a side trip to Dublin and get a case.

    And 'yab got the joke ... :)

    Does anybody remember when Dr Pepper used to advertise with the numbers 10-2-4?
    Apparently it was the times of the day that the "Dr" prescribed you to drink his soda for better health.

    You're right. I bought my first Dr. Pepper in years today. I'm sure it had something to do with all T.O. coverage, on top of the soda's new "23" marketing campaign.

    And I'm contemplating getting a Mac for the home office instead of a PC. Those commercials make you wonder why anyone buys a PC over a MAC.

    Mr. Pibb should have gone to grad school if he wanted to compete.

    There's no period after the Dr

    I don't even like the stuff and I know that.

    Why is there no period? Always wondered that.

    And it is the greatest fucking pop (as we say up here) ever made.
  7. I can't tell you why there's no period, but I do know that when the product first came out, it did have a period and then slowly got removed over time. I know this meaningless stuff because my girlfriend's grandfather collects Dr Pepper memorabilia, but only if there's a period after Dr.
    Yes, that's all he has to live for.

    So, is the David Naughton "wouldn't you like to be a Pepper" ad playing over and over? That would get old fast.

    Speaking of which, what the hell happened to the Cherry Vanilla Diet Dr Pepper? I got hooked on that stuff thanks to SportsJournalists.com, but now my local stores only carry the 500 ml bottles.

    I want the 2 L size, dammit!

    So you can pour it into the radiator; people for years have said it tastes like anti-freeze.

    Isn't Dr Pepper poker 3s and 9s wild, 4 buys you another card?

    sidenote: what the hell is up with the pop-up ads?
