I just opened up a bottle of Dr. Pepper and happened to glance at the cap and see “WINNER ONE YEAR DRPEPPER” written in it. Yay!

Then I look at the bottle to see what I need to do to claim the prize and see these words “Game ends 4/30/2004” doh! Then I look at the expiration date on the bottle and see “061404” (June 14, 2004). It wasn’t a diet soda so the date doesn’t mean too much so at least I can still drink it.

The sad part is that I know I could still auction the cap on ebay even though now it is just a worthless piece of plastic.
