In honor of the hottest weather in these parts this season, we celebrate SwanShadow's Top Three Slurpee Flavors.

1. Coca-Cola. It's the real thing.

2. Piña Colada. If you like Piña Colada Slurpees, you probably also enjoy getting caught in the rain, the feel of the ocean, the taste of champagne, and making love at midnight in the dunes on the cape.

3. Blue Raspberry. Great flavor, but drinking one always reminds me of George Carlin's rant about the fact that there is no naturally occurring blue food.

Honorable Mention: Mountain Dew (the original, not these newfangled Dews that come in bizarre flavor/color combinations other than the original nondescript citrus/Day-Glo chartreuse). All the skater kids to whom Dew is hot and happening have no idea that this soft drink used to be promoted with a caricature of a barefoot hillbilly hollering, "Yahoo! It's Mountain Dew!" back in the days when "Yahoo!" was an Ozark mating call rather than an Internet megalith.
