This comic is absolutely true: my brother-in-law, Mike, (portrayed by Coolhand in the strip) has a near-violent reaction to the taste of Dr. Pepper. It used to be funny to “accidentally” switch our drinks at a fast food joint or movie theater, but I soon learned that inducing your friend to nearly vomit kinda ruins the rest of the day. Not to say that it won’t happen in the future, but if it does, it will truly be an accident, and not an “accident.” Hopefully, Mike will read and believe this.

Got a ton of responses on the previous strip to the question of what your favorite soft drink is, so now I’ll ask the flip side: what soda do you absolutely despise? Mine? Almost any diet drink but I’ll go with Diet Pepsi.
