The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

10, 2 and forlorn

A "Useless Fact" stuffed into a corner of Stuff (August '05):

The Dr Pepper company says it doesn't use prunes, black peppers, chili peppers, bell peppers, peppermint, prune juice or cherry flavoring to make its drink. Which leaves only eggs and ketchup.

I remember making an Emergency Bloody Mary (proper ingredients being unavailable at that particular instant) out of that combination once upon a time, and I don't recall it being the slightest bit Dr Pepperesque.

Boolean logic indicates that the assertion The Dr Pepper company says it doesn't use prunes, black peppers, chili peppers, bell peppers, peppermint, prune juice AND cherry flavoring to make its drink. can still be true.

Just as long as there's no mayonnaise.
