I had a lot of little things on my “To-Do” list that involved things I could do, sitting at a computer (color separations for screen printing) or just sitting around (cutting pants into shorts), so I decided to curl up on the couch with Temple of Doom and a nice frosty bottle of Doctor Jones. Now that is a winning pair if I’ve ever heard of one. Speaking of pairing do you think a high quality Dr Pepper knock off would go better with Snake Surprise, Black Beetles, Eyeball Soup or Chilled Monkey Brains? Yeah, you’re probably right, a nice Doctor Jones/Monkey Brain float sounds just wonderful.
Jones really did a great job with this soda. Normally knock offs of this variety have something a little off about them that let’s you know that they didn’t get the recipe quite right. This on the other hand is so similar to Dublin Dr. Pepper that I don’t know if I could taste the difference in a blind taste test. Remember those? Do any companies still do them? If so please get a hold of Mike and I because we would love to participate.
Here’s a little insight into my psyche for you. When I was a pre-teen I was obsessed with Indiana Jones. I bought my mom’s boyfriend a hat like the one Indy wears without even a thought as to whether or not he liked the movies (of course he did, he’s not a communist). I also took a summer archeology class. It wasn’t as exciting as I wanted it to be. I think they should have buried bottles of this soda out in a field and had us go dig them up, carefully as to not break the glass. I would have been more pumped about the class then. I’m more of a field agent instead of a classroom snoozer.
One final thought. Two of my biggest heroes (Indiana Jones and Peter Venkman) are both doctors. I really need to sign up for one of those online fake colleges where you can get real degrees that no one takes seriously. That way I can legally get Dr. Jason Draper put on my license. How sweet would that be? I could also carry around a sweet whip and a proton pack. Even sweeter.
ppppps. It would be criminal if I didn't say this. "No time for love Doctor Jones."
