From the Department of Corrections: sometimes, I just want to correct what I see as a grave error on other people’s part. I present this small correction, again, since it didn’t seem to take effect quite as strongly as I’d hoped previously.

I know it’s probably pedantic, and too late to change this particular meme, but here goes my tiny little attempt.

It’s come up at work a couple of times recently, so I wanted to point out that what was served by Jim Jones to his followers was not Kool-Aid.

People who are blindly following the orders of a charismatic cult leader are drinking the Flavor-Aid. Got it? Are we clear?

And, no, Kraft Foods did not pay me to make this statement.
