Ugarit Cola — It’s the Real (Old) Thing!

19th July 2006

As a former Coke aficionado and addict (Diet Coke to be specific) and Hebrew Bible specialist, I found this to be somewhat humorous:


I wonder if this type of cola was popular during marzeahs at Ugarit? (spiked, of course!)

    Tyler -

    Perhaps you should capitalize “Coke” just so there’s no confusion…

    You say “former” addict – have you given up Diet Coke? Are the brain tumors getting too big?

    Yes, Bob, I have been “clean and sober” off Diet Coke since Lent. I gave it up for Lent and when Lent was over I didn’t bother to have it again — though I have had a couple cans since (I actually found I didn’t like the taste of it anymore).
