A conversation at the theatre

In line to get popcorn at the movies today. When I get up to the counter...

Me: I'd like a large coke and a small popcorn please.

Popcorn lady: Okay, sure.

[And then I see the large large large coke.]

Me: Wow, that's a large coke! (it was about the size of my purse.)

Her: Well....you look like a tall lady, so your kidney's could probably handle this large of a coke.

Note: huh?? WTC?!

I've seen you, you're not tall. Or even vertically neutral.

I bet the popcorn lady's other brilliant comment is "Do you want fries with that?"

well Amy amerson- your kidney are one of the oragns in the body that help filter all the crap that coke puts in. Excessive acidity in the body brought on by coke causes an acid-base imbalance in the blood stream. acidic blood is no bueno. EQUAL DEATH!!!!!!!
