So I usually say "Damn, George W. Bush!" when I go to the gas station and pay outrageous amounts of money for oil. I know it's not really his fault, but it just feels good to say it. Now after reading this that was sent to me via e-mail, I realize how unfair this is. I realize that I should take all of these other opportunities to say it, too.
(Note: Evian is good water. And it comes from Evian-les-Bains, a town in the French Alps. And it says it on the bottle . . . so what is this e-mail forward author talking about?)
Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...
Compare with Gasoline......
Think a gallon of gas is expensive?
This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.
Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ....... $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ...........$9.52 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ..... $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 .......... $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ........... $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 .... $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 ... $123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ........ . $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 .....$84.48 per gallon
And this is the REAL KICKER...
Evian water 9 oz $1.49..........$21.19 per gallon?! $21.19 for WATER - and the buyers don't even know the source. (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)
So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, or God forbid, Pepto Bismol or Nyquil.
