something they do well
February 14, 2010
Way back when I reviewed Diet Coke (hint: I like Diet Coke) I ranted a bit about how much Diet Coke with Lemon tasted like Lemon Pledge, and might have been the worst execution of a good idea, maybe ever.
Well, the Coca Cola folks eventually came out with the magic elixir we call Diet Coke with Lime. Here’s what I said about it:
I don’t know what happened between 2002 and 2004 at the Coca Cola think tank, but apparently the right person died, because there’s no way the same dipweed who came up with the crap that is Diet Coke with Lemon and the mess that is Diet Vanilla Coke also invented the sublime flavor bouquet that is Diet Coke with Lime. The only combo that gets me more excited than Diet Coke with Lime, is a 44oz fountain drink, straight up Diet Coke, with a squirt of Vanilla. Somebody in Georgia deserves a promotion. And a big hug. And a night with an expensive hooker. I could go on. I’m just really, really grateful.
Apparently the same thing happened at Draper City. Remember the stupid “Hey! Watch Out! It’s Snowing!” sign Draper City put up at the bottom of the Suncrest Hill? In short, it was stupid.
However. Bien Voila!
I will do both things forthwith. I urge you to do likewise.
Like Sergeant Hartman said to Private Gomer Pyle, but as if he were speaking to the sign guys at Draper City:
“Outstanding, Private Pyle. I think we finally found something that you do well”
