Of course, in a country like Israel or Saudi Arabia, where they read from right to left, the message on the billboard is that Dr. Pepper turns men into chimps: http://6.mshcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/0...

The Jews and Muslims might like that better than the Christians did.

Q: Why do creationists drink Mr Pibb?
A: Because fake science deserves fake Dr Pepper.

I always thought Dr. Pepper was a medical doctor. I didn't know he had a PhD. in evolutionary biology.

Apparently creationists are boycotting Dr. Pepper in a continuing effort to deny that they like anything in the can.
