Per usual, Aske's insight is spot on.




Pepsi Cola hits the spot.
Twelve ounce bottle;
That's a lot!
Twice as much
For a nickel too.
Pepsi Cola is the drink for you!


Quote
During depression years, this jingle encouraged price-watching consumers to switch to Pepsi from Coca-Cola, which offered a six ounce bottle for the price of five cents (a nickel), instead of the twelve ounces Pepsi sold at the same price. Pepsi's 12-ounce bottles fared well, and change wasn't made to this volume of packaging until 1963, when the 16-ounce bottle was introduced.

Why have you stopped buying 20 oz Cokes? The WSJ says that Pepsi is testing a 16 oz model. Will you buy that?

I just saw 12 oz bottles in the grocery store. The economy must really be turning to *feces*.

Well, then, if stroh's fridge is any indication, the economy has been in the *feces*ter for years.
