It’s been a few weeks now since we’ve stopped carrying Diet Coke here at Franktuary. Most people are okay with that, especially since we’ve got several other diet beverage options.

Then there are the other people. When they find out that there’s not a single drop of Diet Coke anywhere on the premises they make a face roughly akin to the one I would make if a kangaroo defeated me in an arm wrestling match while he chatted in French on his cell phone. In the minds of those people, Diet Coke must be a naturally occurring substance more beneficial to the human body than water. Perhaps they would like to bathe in Diet Coke.

To those people I say unplug yourself! Just for the taste of it, try something else.
