another quickie.. nab it while you can!

Among a group of over 90 doctors, none of them have ever been sued, but most are so bad at what they do that I want nothing to do with them.

Is the "what they do" related to their role as doctors?

Are they medical doctors?

Do they all share the same speciality? Do they all work in the same hospital? the same city? the same country?

Figments of imaginations? noish

Doctor Pepper? yes!

*** SPOILER ***

There are at least 90 different private label imitators of the Dr Pepper soft drink, mostly unpalatable and all named some variation of "Dr ___". The one available at Cleveland area Giant Eagles, "Dr. Aahh", is particularly vile.


a strangely detailed website about off-brand Dr Peppers

That's funny--I thought of Dr. Pepper but I couldn't imagine there were 90 immitators.

But then some of us think that the original Dr Pepper is unpalatable. :O

I don't even like the original Dr either; tho I did go through a brief Mr. Pibb phase when I lived in California. I see from the "non-degree" portion of that website that there is now also a "Mr. Aahh!" and a "Mr. Ahhh!" as well, both of which were spotted for sale in the same store.

I like Dr. Pepper ok, but not in cans; only in glass bottles, which are only available in some areas of the country. The stuff in the cans is much, much sweeter than I remember the original Dr Pepper being.
