It was just another day at Coeur d'Alene High School in 1972...
THE GREAT "MOUNTAIN DEW" INCIDENT!

It's a day I will never forget. In the lunchroom at Coeur d'Alene High School, were a couple of soft-drink machines. Only, these machines didn't spit out cans of pop; rather, they would drop a paper cup into a little holder, and then the glass would be filled with a prescribed amount of whatever soft drink you'd chosen. Well, there was an element of foreboding in the air, and things would never be the same again. (Well, yes they would, but it sounds good, anyway)

Well, I wanted some "Mountain Dew". This was long before I knew that it was saturated with Caffeine. Some people swear by it. So, I put my coin into the machine, selected that green carbonated liquid (which kinda looks like ANTIFREEZE), and the glass proceeded to be filled. So, I pulled out the glass, only the machine DIDN'T SHUT OFF! "Mountain Dew" everywhere! I told a bunch of other kids about it, and they all began lining up in front of the machine for free "Mountain Dew"! However much one of those big metal pressurized pop canisters hold, was all gone in a matter of moments. I don't know if "Mountain Dew" stock dropped that day or not.

The reason I wrote all THAT was so that I could achieve some sort of "tie-in" factor for the totally unnecessary photo I've featured below. Da-Daaaaa......................



Sorry 'bout that, folks. I couldn't help it. There are a couple more newer posts below, although they, too, might be unnecessary...

cdadave -- you have been bit by the graphics bug. God help us all if you decide to learn how to do animations. Funny stuff.

The other vending machine was saying, "Your mother lets you go to school dressed like that?!"

Just goes to show that my most off-the-wall stuff always gets the most comments. Stebbi, I'll leave the animations to you; I'm having enough fun as it is. I remember the National Lampoon magazine used to publish "foto-funnies" where pictures were "altered" in much the same way I alter them.

Phil, I too am kinda shocked by the skimpiness and tightness of clothes young girls wear. Aren't they uncomfortable wearing stuff 3 sizes too small?

Cathy, I'm glad you dig this stuff. Everyone deserves to have a laugh now and then.
