The first time this comic ran I received more than one e-mail from readers who had worked at McDonalds, claiming that the reason their Diet Coke tastes better is that they clean the soda fountain and supply lines according to Coca-Cola’s guidelines.
Whether that’s true or not, it’s a great piece of PR for McDonalds to put out there. “We’re not saying our competitors’ restaurants are filthy. Your taste buds are saying it. We’re just agreeing.”
