it is a reference to the Jonestown mass suicide when cult leader Jim Jones and his followers all drank laced Kool-Aid.

People (sheeple), who follow blind obediance or don't' question what they're being told.

the Kool-Aid thisg comes from Jim Jones Cult down in Guyana when they all commited mass suicide by drinking poisoned Kool-Aid (actually, it was Flavor-Aid).

Reflects on the cult like mentality of some people who blindly follow someone or something. Take antiColt people for example. To them Colt is the antichrist and the sum of al evil in this world. They actively preach against a great gun maker like Colt and never seem to shut up about it.



Just watch the reactions that statement gets.

Thank you.

I guess I still don't understand why it seems to be a recent "saying", when it's in reference to an event that happened long ago.

Funny story...
Two guys still alive at the end of the drinking party. One is Jim Jones, the other is a dying man who did drink and is on the way out. Dying guy notices that ol' revrend Jim is not gonna drink, so what's he do?

Shoots his ass.

That's funny.
