sarcastic works too, I hear it's gross


Meghan and Jeff found this sticker on a package of Mountain Dew Game Feul at a store. They write:
We like to imagine that the makers of the sticker are trying to personify their product -- New Product says, "Try me!" Additionally, the sticker can be easily read as threatening -- "Go ahead, try me." Which, let's be honest, is fair enough, given the name of the product.

I hate when sodas talk to me!

Maybe I should stay off the LSD...

So, am I supposed to "Try" the soda or the person wearing the sticker? I would hate to think the person were a new product.

Isn't Fuel spelled incorrectly?

I see those "Try me" stickers on toys often, and they aren't usually in quotes. Although, I think it almost makes more sense TO use quotes on "Try me", since it's not LITERAL in that case. I guess both ways work though.
