Reinfused Soda Fail

I purchased a few cans of dusting agent to, well dust and thought to use the remains of the can in an attempt to add effervescence back into my then flat Diet Mountain Dew.  I grabbed a paper towel to wipe the soda from screen after spitting out one of the foulest fluids I’ve ever tasted (beats both windshield washer fluid and fake stool).  Then I look to see on the can:  “For the safety of your children, a strong bittering agent has been added to this product to stop inhalant abuse.”.  Once again, kids abusing the kindness of companies has destroyed another one of amazing ideas.  One day I’ll finish my cocaine-powered flashlight.
