Completely Random Thought: I Need A New Coke
I tend to get obsessed with rather odd and completely useless things from time to time. For some reason lately I’ve really been wanting to find someone that owns an original, unopened can of New Coke that they’ll sell to me.

But, I haven’t been able to find any on eBay. So, I figured I’d ask you worldly people if you have any ideas? Anyone know where I should look? I obviously won't be drinking it - even though I've always wondered what it tasted like. I just think it would be a cool bit of Americana to own.
