I just recieved this email from a good friend of mine and thought I would share this. If the mods feel this is a story worth tacking up, please do so for all to read. Politically Incorrect We called on God on 9-11, so what is wrong with him now? For those who have not heard, the bottlers/manufacturers of Dr. Pepper, and Pepsi, have started a "new" can campaign. They are putting patriotic scenes on them. One is the Empire State Bldg. with the pledge of allegiance, but they left off the words, "under God." They felt it might "offend" someone. I do not know about you, but I am boycotting their products! They said they didn't "have room" for those words, but yet they had room for indivisible" on the can! Please pass this along to others and see if we can get a message out to DR. Pepper and Pepsi---if having "under God" on cans offends them, then they don't need our money with "in God we trust" on it!!!! PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON TO YOUR FRIENDS! LET DR. PEPPER AND PEPSI SEE WHAT CLOUT WE AMERICANS HAVE OVER THE INTERNET!!!!! Sincerely, Thomas A. Lytle

Here's a hint for everyone for when you receive an email like this from a friend, before passing it along to others: Do a search at snopes.com. [url=http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/outrage/drpepper.htm]Mainly an urban legend[/url]

Why don't you take that extra step and noycott all soda/pop? It's a real easy way to lose some weight and I would think twice about tossing something in my gut that eats rust off of pennies! Sorry for the rant Keving67

I am glad it was a legend... I like coke better but was willing to start drinking Pepsi to support them.

Speaking of Pepsi, has anyone tried that Pepsi "BLUE"? I had some today. Tasted like Blueberry pop. Really sweet. All I could think of is that it would be much better if mixed with some Vodka. And I dont even like Vodka...yet.

Ok my poor internet knowlege shows I suppose. I guess I look like an ass clown know. Thanks for directing me to the urban legends page. I stand corrected. Sorry. I did not even think about checking the urban legend pages since I recieved this email from a good friend of mine! Doooooohhhhh! Can we just delete this message?

I'm always suspicious of chain mails sent by my net friends.

Yes, you can just delete, but then no one would learn from your mistake [:P]

When somebody calls something an urban legend, does that make it so? Or when it is mentioned on a web site 'exposing' things as 'urban legends', are we supposed to believe THAT? How do we know how carefully they check this stuff out?

I need no further urging to boycott Pepsi products. That ad where Peter Fonda and Captain America are riding along and some doofy middle aged office worker rolls up along side on Billy's bike did it for me. As a FORMER HD owner and rider, I was greatly offended.

I'm with blackmanta on this one. That Easy Rider commercial has got to go. Also on my list are the people using the overture from Tommy to promote anti-allergy pills.

I've been boycotting pepsi my entire life. It just sucks, plain and simple. Glad to know there is another reason to hate them. Bill3508

First: Pepsi and Dr. Pepper are two different companies. Two: Read above posts about 'urban legends'. Three: At least Pepsi didn't cave in to Jesse Jackson.
