??!! The New Coke?
posted by November 8 at 16:02 PMon
A friend pointed out to me today that she’d gotten a bottle of Coke Zero, and that she couldn’t drink it. Not because the artificial sweeteners had finally rendered her colon useless, but because the bottle lid smelled like body odor. Isolated incident? Not according to her coworkers, who have also drank the stank, and a Google search for “coca-cola smells like bo” brought this story up:
I went to take a sip from the bottle, and I smelled a terrible smell. Something smelled like body odor. Oh my gosh, did I forget deodorant? I didn’t realize that my body could smell so foul! After a quick and discreet arm pit sniff, I realized it wasn’t me. What was it? Like a human hound dog, I started sniffing around. The smell was coming from-MY DIET COKE! Ahhhh! The cap to my diet coke smelled like body odor. It was the most disgusting thing ever, so I of course shoved it in Heather’s face so she could smell, and I took it back to work for everyone else to smell.
This girl proceeded to call Coca-Cola, complain, and get a free eight-pack, which she admits didn’t stink. But what say you, soda nation? Any stinky Cokes in Seattle? Happily ignoring corn syrup beverages? Sticking with coffee to promote negative local stereotypes? Wish this was less of a worthless story? Mr. Pibb 4 life?
