Soda Bottles and Argyle Socks

I do realize that there have been an awful lot of retro ads featuring beverages this month - didn't plan that, it just sort of happened. So yes, here's another one, which I really did mean to post before the 25th. Close enough, though, right? And it's so funny, I didn't want to wait another year.

Yes, when Santa comes down the chimney and arrives at that pristine white fireplace, he is going to be packing a big old cooler full of bottles of Seven Up. And wasn't everyone surprised and happy to see soda bottles peeking out of their Christmas stockings! I wonder if it's safe, really, having those glass bottles full of carbonated stuff so close to a roaring fire. It isn't safe at all, really, because if you heat up soda, the gas pressure builds up and starts needing more and more space and eventually - um, it explodes.

Santa really needs to rethink this.

Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely holiday, full of good things, and that you are never surprised by a bottle of Seven Up in an argyle sock.
