I was looking over the Scholastic website, and I made a very strange discovery about the book Brain Juice.

The cover provided here  (mirror) was HD, so I figured I could clean it up and maybe add it to the Wiki. While I was inspecting the cover, I noticed that something about the tagline was... Weird.

The cover provided on the Scholastic website says the line,

"This is your brain. This is your brain on juice."

In case that doesn't sound familiar, the line is a direct reference to an anti-drug PSA from the 1980s (link & link).

When I first read that, I was a little surprised that they would reference such a serious topic. I also didn't remember the tagline at all. However, I was even more surprised when I realized that the tagline was replaced by Scholastic! For every cover that I've seen online, the tagline is the much tamer phrase,

"A mind is a terrible thing to drink."

I can see why Scholastic replaced the tagline. However, I'm not sure if they replaced the tagline prior to production or if they changed it on second printings. If you've got a copy of this book, comment what your book says down below.
