A case of Dr. Pepper in Seattle (PIC)

Soda is terrible for you. I enjoy it on rare occasion, but it is sugar water. There is no nutritional value. But you know what? Sugar water is a good thing sometimes and this kind of taxation is simply reflective of too many busybodies in city government.

By the way, I am sure NO ONE is driving into the suburbs, filling their pickup trucks with soda and selling it on the side of the road. Nope.
