A man named James dropped a bombshell on his colleagues:
He enjoyed the combination of milk and Coke.
It was a "Brummie" (an English dialect that is spoken in the West Midlands of Birmingham in the United Kingdom.) thing, he said.
His colleagues were rightly disturbed.
I'll never forget the Slack message saying "...would you think it was weird if I had a milk-coke?"— Tom Hale (@tommyhale91) February 28, 2019
Some called him out on his BS.
I want to see you drink this James. In the office, tomorrow. In front of other people. No avoiding this time— Katy Evans (@KatyFevans) February 28, 2019
You say this like it’s something I avoid, when I actually love nothing more than drinking a big mug of milk coke— James Felton (@JimMFelton) February 28, 2019

Milk coke is a real thing. Brummies love it. We can all move on from this discussion now, I will be taking no further questions. pic.twitter.com/dQR8bg3UAO— James Felton (@JimMFelton) March 1, 2019
Based on my kids school reaction to this Momo story, I reckon we about a day away from getting a letter from the head warning us about the dangers of Milk Coke.— Rich (@Pibasedlifeform) March 1, 2019
Back when I worked in UCL's Phineas, some guy insisted on ordering a "Baileys & Coke". I poured the creamy baileys into the acidic coke, it immediately curdled into thousands of floating proteinous lumps. The guy was mortified but drank it anyway. Coke & milk sounds even worse...— Hugh Osborn (@exohugh) March 1, 2019
I'm going to go throw up now.
