#9 could be Dr. Pepper vs. Dr. Pepper

You can only get real Dr. Pepper from the bottler in Dublin, Texas. Years ago, all soft drink makers switched from using sugar to using corn syrup as a sweetener. The Dublin bottler stubbornly refused to switch, and to this day, they still sweeten with pure cane sugar, as God intended.

Dr. Pepper
Sweet Tea
Socks - my feet get cold
Hawaiian shirts
No points
Pork for crying out loud!!!

I'm going to write a white paper showing how a Baptist Sunday School class in North Carolina in the late 1840's approved of all of these things, so they are the traditional Baptist position and should be therefore mandatory for all Baptists - I'll get to that paper in a couple of months! (Just kidding IMB BOT - I just wanted to lighten things up a bit!)

You need to make sure that everyone knows what cheerwine is.

When we first went to Charlotte, we had a get together to meet people in the church. They offered us cheerwine. I must have looked like a deer in the headlights. I thought, "This is a different Baptist church. maybe they are not SBC, like I thought. Did I miss something."

Of course, when I figured it out, they had a great laugh at my expense.

Cheerwine isn't alcohol. It's a soft drink.

Like their nasty bbq, only Carolinians could love it.

nasty bbq!?!? nasty cheerwine!?!? art, art, art. i buy a six-pack of that stuff everytime i pass through the state! (uh, cheerwine, not bbq...)

A most delightful punch can be made by using one 2-liter of Cheerwine, one 2-liter of Ginger Ale, and one tall can of pineapple juice. Lovely at Christmas with it's distinct red color. If you really want it to have a kick, use Blenheim ginger ale from SC. It's so hot, it will melt the enamel off your teeth. Of course, we Carolinians can't taste it because our mouths are already fried from our vinegar barbecue!!!

I believe you CAN get real Dr (no period) Pepper from Waco, Texas, home of the Dr Pepper Museum. Straight from the tap.

How do I know? Been there at least twice in my life. (I may live in Alabama, but my whole family's from Texas- from Lubbock to Waco to Plano to Katy.) 24 years of traveling to Texas, and I still haven't seen it all. But I know the Dr Pepper Museum like I know my own house.

I'm waiting for confirmation on this, but I'm reasonably sure that the Dr Pepper you get from the tap in Waco is sweetened with the vile high fructose corn syrup. Dublin is the only place that still uses sugar.

As I said, I'm researching. If I'm wrong I'll let you know.

See? They admit it.

I am praying for salvation for all of you.
