    I believe it was a PBS special I watched back in December, documenting the lives of several Appalachian Hill Folk, and their excessive use of crack and meth.

    There seemed to be a common thread running through the community of both the drug users and those who lived a clean life, and that common thread was that everyone was skinny as a rail, had their teeth falling out and swilled Mountain Dew like I drank beer at the time.

    It was even wondered aloud in the documentary by those making it, as to whether or not the hillbilly’s teeth were falling out because of the drug use or the high sugar content of the Mountain Dew.

    At this point I thought to myself, “Problem solved… sugarless diet Mountain Dew!” Also at this point I was wondering if Mountain Dew was a renaming of one of my favorite brands of pop when I was a kid, called *Hillbilly Juice*. That kid *pick me up* with that colorful icon, a Moon shinin’ hillbilly with a shootin gun, singing the theme song, “Hillbilly Juice, Hillbilly Juice, sure do love that Hillbilly Juice.” I mean that was right up there with the lovable Frito Bandito, who let you know right up front that he intended to rob you at knife point of your crispy snack.

    So, I’m off to Wal-Mart and load up the shopping cart with all the 2 liter bottles of diet Mountain Dew they had on the shelf. At a buck a bottle, I thought that was a good deal. Cheaper than eating!

    The great thing about diet Mountain Dew is that it taste just fine warm, out of the bottle. This makes it easy to place bottles all over the house like a drugged out squirrel storing nuts then immediately forgetting where they are.

    Whatever, I also picked up a magnetic resistance exercise bike from Wal-Mart and between the diet Mountain Dew and the bike, I managed to lose 30 pounds since starting to pedal and drink the stuff. And none of that weight loss is attributed to my teeth falling out.

    This stuff is great! Whenever I feel the need to nibble on something like a huge BBQ Po-Boy, I swill the nearby elixir, and bingo bongo, I’m cool.

    Now if the price would just come down to something reasonable on the nicotine inhaler the wife used when she thought she might actually be able to quit smoking, I’d be in Hillbilly Heaven.

    …why do I have the desire to smoke my coke now?

    Horror of horrors, I went to Wal-Mart today to pick up the regular stuff and saw that the price of 2 liter bottles of diet Mountain Dew was cranked up from a buck a bottle to $1.58!

    JUST FREAKING GREAT!

    Yeah, finding this out, 15 minutes after paying $2.9999 a gallon to fill up!

    Thank Jebus I didn’t have to pay $3 bucks a gallon!
