When I was a kid, my parents never let me drink Kool-aid at home.
I know it was because my mom thought it had too much sugar, and was bad for my teeth. She made me drink milk instead.
But I've always secretly thought the reason they never let me drink it was because the Jonestown massacre happened when I was a baby.
According to some sources, 900 people committed suicide by drinking cyanide-laced Kool-aid.
Although, according to this Kool-aid FAQ site, they drank "Flavor-aid," a "cheap imitation of Kool-aid." Wow, that's a potential dilution of trademark lawsuit, no? Could Kool-aid could sue Flavor-aid for tarnishing its reputation?
Well, I still think the Kool-Aid Man is way cool. #
