Oi Polloi

While most people might dedicate their lives to humanitarian aid or attempting to answers the headiest philosophical questions, there's one man out there who's really doing the Lord’s work. He may look like an unassuming sharp-dressed chap, but he's spent his entire adult life studying every carbonated beverage known to man.

He's pondered everything from which pop is best suited for a summer’s afternoon (it's Ting, apparently) to how many cans of Barr's cream soda is it okay to snaffle before one starts getting the shakes, and he's even penned a much-lauded academic essay – Which is more appropriate to serve at a wake: Coke or Pepsi?
