Buffett Fails The Taste Test

|Includes: Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. Cl A (BRK.A)

Bloomberg's Betty Liu gave Warren the taste test, putting 4 unmarked cups of cherry flavored soda in front of him. He tasted them all, and chose number 1, which was Dr. Pepper.

This is serious. Very serious. For several years now, I've been attempting to catch up with Warren in the investment field, drinking one coke daily (high fructose corn syrup and all). The thinking is, by applying the same fuel, I will get the same performance.

Recently my performance has been lagging, and after considerable analytical effort I determined that Buffett actually drinks Cherry Coke. So I sent my wife out to get that instead of the regular Coke I had been drinking.

Now I discover, Buffett can't tell the difference. Not only that, he drinks five of the damn things. That's an awful lot of high fructose corn syrup: I don't think my metabolism can handle it.

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
