Coke-Cola at one time had a slogan "The Pause That Refreshes" referring to the time you were drinking a can/bottle of Coke. Well if people think that this was the pause that refreshes never spent a few hours in a military convoy in the back of a 2 1/2 ton truck with a bladder so full you gargled when you talked. The pause that really refreshes is when the troop commander stops the convoy along the side of the road and yells "PISS CALL" Now that becomes the real "Pause That Refreshes".
