To whoever decided to chill at my desk last night after hours, spill their beverage and then walk away without cleaning it up, thanks for nothing, jerk. You also destroyed a few of my son’s drawings.
UPDATE: The source of the liquid has been traced to a tiny hole in a can of Buzz Cola which I bought at the 7-11/Kwik-E-Mart in July 0f 2007. It had been sitting on the shelf since I bought it, but don’t ask me how the thing sprung a leak!
Anyway, carry on. Nothing to see here. Move along.

I’m not surprised. Similar thing happened to me with a can of Simpsons D’oh Cola. I kept one can on my desk at home, unopened, for obvious reasons. One day, I woke up and found my desk was covered in a thin sticky goo. I eventually traced the source to the can of untasty yet cleverly marketed cola beverage.
Here’s my theory. I just came up with this now.
Either cola is so awful, it can eat through aluminum OR
The manufacturers of the product (in my case Cott Corporation in Canada) knew that consumers would buy the product for storage on shelves and not to be consumed with the hope that one day the product would be worth something to collectors. By canning the product in inferior cans, all the consumer collections would be wasted before the collector values started to appreciate. The originating brewing company (again, in Canada, it’s Cott) may have kept a significant amount of higher quality cans in their own storage for release when the value appreciates. To sumerize, defective cans of the product create a smaller supply and raise the value of the product.
But Krusty would never lend his name to an inferior product!
