"Mr. Pibb because it has the sweet, refreshing bold taste they need to express their independence." let's send a case to ben


<Photon> So, anyone tasted this "Pibb Xtra" stuff?
<Photon> http://www2.coca-cola.com/ourcompany/brands_pibb.html
<Samwise> I hope it doesn't suck.
<Samwise> I like the old pibb.
<agent_orange> Pibb EXTREME
<Samwise> "Mr. Pibb enables them to have an uninhibited, fun and unconventional attitude because it has the sweet, refreshing bold taste they need to express their independence."
<mdxi> ENABLER!
<Samwise> More proof that ad people are from mars.
<Photon> Or Japan.
<agent_orange> Mr. Pibb appeals to 12-to-15 year olds who are just gaining independence from home and looking for things to call their own. Mr. Pibb because it has the sweet, refreshing bold taste they need to express their independence.
<agent_orange> let's send a case to ben
<Samwise> How the hell do you express independance with a fucking soda.
<Photon> By conforming?
<spinn> independence always has a sweet, refreshing bold taste
<spinn> hence the phrase "ahh, the sweet, refreshing bold taste of independence"
<agent_orange> all the independent, rebellious next-gen teens are drinking it
<Photon> Well I AM looking to get the most out of life, and the most out of my soft drink.
<spinn> see, that's just an example of how companies lie, and we just expect that they're lying
<spinn> who the fuck would really take a "sweet, refreshing bold taste of independence" seriously if there was an expectation of truth
<Guruzilla> it seems more delusional than false, though. is Mr. Pibb made from poppies, by chance?
<spinn> that's what I mean, though. it's understood that it's bullshit
<spinn> but the marketing guys present it to each other like it's a good thing
<spinn> like it's an /actual/ thing, the sweet, refreshing bold taste of independence
<Samwise> "Ocean Breeze Soap: It's like going on an ocean cruise, only there's no boat and you don't really go anywhere."
<Guruzilla> when the revolution comes, &c.
<mdxi> the entire american business community is built upon lies. companies ALWAYS lie to each other and EVERYONE knows that EVERYONE else is lying, but htey ignore it and use the lies to cover their own asses.
<mdxi> i learned that working at AFLAC
<mdxi> if anyone ever stood up and called bullshit the whole thing would just crumble
<tieboy> damn
<spinn> yeah. the whole enron thing has me concerned
<spinn> it feels like there are dominoes falling
<tieboy> bah
<Guruzilla> so, you guys brushing up on your subsistence-agriculture skills?
<agent_orange> Go go gold standard!
<spinn> concerned. not, like, getting-off-my-ass worried
<mdxi> i'm a-thinkin' 'bout headin' out ta tha old Comstock mines and setting myself up as a dick-tater
<mdxi> after the Fall, the werewolves will come. and they'll need silver, yes. and i'll have it.
<mdxi> also, the fuckin' goths will be having a field day, and i'll have large-calibre automatic firearms.
<agent_orange> like the omega man, only with fags
<mdxi> "Sir! Sensors are picking up someone playing Morbid Angel CDs and reciting poetry 30 clicks northeast!" "Send one of the apaches. Eliminate at stand-off range, do not wait for confirmation"
<tieboy> "Switchblade Symphony from the south! They've flanked us!"
<mdxi> "Massive ennui field from the east...no, south! THEY'RE RIGHT ON TOP OF US!"
<tieboy> "Fire when you can see the black of their eyeliner!"
<mdxi> "Is this a stand-up fight or a bughunt?" "The Company has instructed us to attempt to bring one of them back ali.." "It's a bughunt."
<tieboy> "Thank God their parachutes were made of fishnet. Dopes."
