Should we all go out and buy Pepsi in the new can?!? No, wait, it's Dr. Pepper, but in an old can!!!

I received this via email today:

A little research on the Pepsi website led me to this link:

So, unfortunately, it is a false alarm and our opportunity to support a company that left out "under God" is past. Just for the hell of it, I left a comment on the Dr. Pepper website complimenting their patriotic can design of 2001 and offering my support. I hope they get a chuckle out of it.

Gonna buy me a case of Dr. Pepper too! :-)

Thanks for the heads up! I get crap like this in my email all the time. I'm sure it won't be long before this message invades my inbox. I don't mind it though, I take a lot of pleasure in pointing out the fallacies in chain emails and hitting the "reply all" button. LOL
