    I would have bet a shiny nickle you would have not used McDonalds as their career opportunity but the TSA...

    I like the idea of a boycott, if nothing else it gives us a gauge to determine interwebz outrage vs real world affect. Be it chik-fil-a, oreo, or panties.

    Hmm - I didn't know that. I've heard of Pepsi-Cola but never knew it was a cola flavored pepsi. Interesting. . . I guess I sort of knew about sprite but forgot.

    When you're an addict you just slowly forget everything else exists - I can't recall the last time I drank something other than Dr Pepper for a soda . . . DP or water.

    That said if there were christianfacsists bombing,murdering and causing other violence over evolution you know there would be lots of terrorists butt smoochers out there saying oh evolution is offensive to Christians, we shouldn't be deliberately offending Christians and claiming Dr. Pepper is nothing but offensive bigots and has blood on their hands.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, impotent outrage over tongue in cheek ads is hardly the sole purview of the religious. I remember racism allegations over a Playstation ad and accusations of sexism over men being portrayed as incompetent at household chores in feckin oven cleaner ads.

    If anything - I would assume they're making fun of the evolution concept (if I was going to take it too seriously, which I'm not) . . . but I'm surprised no one seems to think that way.

    Meh, just seems like a send up of 2001: ASO if anything. Could be viewed as a pisstake of that, evolution or intelligent design.
