Diet Joke (Diet Coke nickname)

“Diet Joke” is an unflattering nickname for Diet Coke that has been printed on many images. Some have claimed that “Diet Joke” doesn’t help people’s diets, while others think that the product itself is a joke.

Wikipedia: Diet Coke
Diet Coke (called Coca-Cola Light in some countries) is a sugar-free soft drink produced and distributed by The Coca-Cola Company. It contains artificial sweeteners. Unveiled on July 8, 1982 and introduced in the United States on August 9, it was the first new brand since 1886 to use the Coca-Cola trademark. The product quickly overtook the company’s existing diet cola, Tab, in sales.
