Coke II/Soda Book Update
I can now officially confirm JG2Land correspondent Betsy has reached the foreign island nation of Palau where, in addition to wakeboarding and practicing law, she will investigate the alleged bounty of Coke II in neighboring Micronesia (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, school yourself). I would like to officially thank Betsy now for offering to look into this on my behalf. I would also like to express my hope that the family of roaches living in her bathroom quickly find a new residence in Palau to infest.
Regarding the tome I’m working on that spawned this global New Coke search, I’m almost done hammering out the proposal. Once that’s done, I’ll get to print out a zillion copies, stuff ’em all in manila envelopes, and send ’em to every literary agent and publisher on the planet to see if anyone gives a flying crap about my silly little soda book. Hopefully that process will be less maddening than it was in 2005 when I was trying to get my Star Wars book published. Hopefully the price of stamps hasn’t risen to some exorbitant amount. Hopefully all the rejection letters will be printed on nice, expensive paper I can sell to out-of-work stockbrokers who long for any reminder of the cushy jobs they once held.
Yes, the following sodas are covered in JG2’s obscure soda field guide:
– Crystal Pepsi
– New Coke
– The Jones Soda Thanksgiving Pack
– Big Red
– all forms of Mountain Dew
– Hubba Bubba Bubble Gum soda
– Dracula Soda
– Aspen Apple
– nearly every other weird fizzy you can think of
Thanks for your interest, folks. Stay tuned for more pop updates as they come in.
