    A Free Dr. Pepper for Everyone*

    * if Axl Rose releases his new album in 2008.

    Dr Pepper Will Give Everyone** in America a Free Soda If Axl Rose Releases New Guns N' Roses Album, Chinese Democracy, In 2008
    PR Newswire
    **Guitarists Slash and Buckethead Will Not Be Eligible For Free Soda

    PLANO, Texas, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Tired of a world in which Americans idolize wannabe singers and musicals about high schoolers pass as rock 'n roll music, Dr Pepper is encouraging (ok, begging) Axl Rose to finally release his 17-year-in-the-making belabored masterpiece, Chinese Democracy, in 2008.

    In an unprecedented show of solidarity with Axl, everyone in America, except estranged GNR guitarists Slash and Buckethead, will receive a free can of Dr Pepper if the album ships some time -- anytime! -- in 2008. Dr Pepper supports Axl, and fully understands that sometimes you have to make it through the jungle before you get it right.

    "It took a little patience to perfect Dr Pepper's special mix of 23 ingredients, which our fans have come to know and love," said Jaxie Alt, director of marketing for Dr Pepper. "So we completely understand and empathize with Axl's quest for perfection -- for something more than the average album. We know once it's released, people will refer to it as "Dr Pepper for the ears" because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich, bold sounds -- an instant classic."

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Somehow or other I don't think they will have to pay up.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Is the probability greater than anybody hitting that truck in CF?

    Dr. Pepper will not have to pay up. Chinese Democracy will not be coming out any time soon.

    Dr. Pepper for the ears.

    Yeah, that's what they'll say.

    I thought he was more of a Mr. Pibb man.

    Here's an interesting site:

    Maybe if Aaron Harang wins a strikeout title, they can call him "Dr. K" and he can work out an endorsement deal with Krogers.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I'd rather pay for the Dr. Pepper and not have to think about Axl Rose.

    Yeah, the picture I originally posted was so huge it scared me and I'm not smart enough to know how to shrink it.

    I'll try this one:



    Not looking quite as "rock 'n roll" as he used to. But then, who is?
