The best paragraph I've read today.

"What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it."

Andy Warhol

Angus- How could you let this one through? A Coke is not just a Coke when it's made with cane sugar, either kosher Coke or Mexi-Coke. I would argue that the Mexi-Coke usually tastes a bit flat.

Flat Mexi-coke?

Egads, the Reconquista is going to ruin our sodas!

(Although I found the Colombian Cokes (file your jokes at the window, please) were slightly sweeter than US Cokes).

Yet, of course, when Andy Warhol wrote this, they weren't putting that nasty HFCS in coke.
