How times have changed

"Not soon enough. Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptances and 'fitting in' during those awkward pre-teen and teen years. So, do yourself a favour. Do your child a favour. Start them on a strict regimen of sodas and other sugary carbonated beverages right now, for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness. "

Might explain some of the overweight issues we are having now with the older population. And now I know why I was a shy child - didn't drink enough soda.

NOTE:Just check further on this ad and discovered its is indeed a fake - I must tell my collegue who pinned it up at work.  So easy to get sucked into thinks that look real.  Need to be more careful.  My apologies. 

Have a lovely week.


  1. You might be encouraged to know that the ad is actually fake. Back then their science might have been rather dubious, but not quite this bad. Nick

  2. Hi Jolouise......It certainly pays to be a little wary and check things out.

  4. Well- we all know it's not the best for our babes-- but MY day starts with a Diet Pepsi every morning as soon as my feet hit the floor!
