A distinguishing feature about many Arkansans:

Local boy (Clinton) does well, fuck him. 

Yankee does well (Long), fuck him.

It doesn't matter if an ethically challenged PWT Arky kid occupies the Oval Office, or if the Yankee is credited nationally for hiring and firing an ethically challenged high achiever from Idaho, many Arkansas folks just don't want to be reminded of how average they are.

Who the hell makes TAB? I didn’t even think they still made it but my dad is still drinking them.

My mother drank TaB when it was introduced in the early '60s.  As I recall it tasted better than diets do now because the sweetener was saccarhin and cyclamates.  Coke dropped the cyclamates but kept the saccarhin with a big warning label on it for years.  It has a cult following, like Fresca.  Your old man is part of the TaB cult.

The worst diet product of the 60s was a diet drink supplement called MetriCal.  It was very popular for women to drink instead of the "diet plate" in a restaurant, which consisted of a burnt hamburger patty, cottage cheese, and a canned peach half plopped on top.  I had an aunt that drank it and it tasted like fish guts.  A prototype for Ensure.

This is a very strange, but not true, statement.
