False Advertising


There’s a sign in the Taco Bell/KFC drive-thru advertising a “Value Drink” for 99 cents. It looks like a pretty sweet deal because the cup is at least three feet tall.

“How big is the Value Drink?” I ask the drive-thru voice.

“16 ounces,” she says.

“Really? It looks a lot bigger than that on the sign.”

“It’s a trick,” she says. “That’s not the actual size.”

“In that case,” I say, “just give me a large Diet Pepsi.”

    And where would you put your three foot tall cup if it really were that size? In the passenger seat?
