“Hello, poison control? I just drank unsweet tea”

Many people in the South love sweet tea. A joke was posted on Facebook by Jamar E Jenkins on June 24, 2021:

“Hello poison control ?
I just drank unsweet tea”


The joke went viral, with over 150,000 shares. “I accidentally got unsweet tea. Call poison control”—an earlier form of the joke—had been posted on Twitter by desirae danielle smith on September 16, 2015.

Hello, Poison Control? Help! I just drank unsweetened ice tea.
Fix oatmeal with brewed green tea instead of water.
