Did you have your V8 today?

I did, and it hurt, but not where you'd expect.

Prices for 11.5 oz cans of V8 recently surged from $0.67 to $0.88 each. I know, I know, you're all up in arms about it too. It is, after all a Netflix-style 35% price increase (slightly less fanfare, yes, but equally diabolical).

This is going to hurt my wallet to the tune of $150 per year, so I made plans to cut back and weight wait until they realize that I was single-handedly drinking all of the Low Sodium V8 in north Austin.

Then I found a scientific study1 that says I'll go back to two-a-days, despite the expense. The people at V8 probably commissioned falsified read that study, so my siege may not succeed.

Stupid science.

1 You mean you don't ready scientific studies before making rash decisions?
