Climate Craziness of the Week Why Im a Pepsi drinker now
Watts Up With That ^ | 12/23/09

I used to love the Coca-Cola Polar bear TV ads at Christmastime. I marveled at the quality of the CGI animations when they first came out, like this one:

I've got a better reason. I have a two liter bottle of Coke in my fridge that on one side of the label says, "Feliz Navidad," while on the other it says "Holidays 2009."

Christmas is OK if you don't speak English, according to the Coca-Cola Company.

You need to see the Pepsi billboard near my place of work (if it’s still there). “Oh Boy!” it says in what looks like an Obama campaign sign with the new Pepsi logos instead of ‘O’s that look like the Obama logo. I swear everytime I glance at the billboard I think it says “Obey!”

Anyone know how Royal Crown is doing?

It reminds me of those earlier Coke ads, “I’d like to teach the world to sing, In perfect harmony.”

Ugh.

Which should be a clue as to the identity of the REAL target.

Pepsi is just as bad , take a good look at their logo.
I quit drinking both a long time ago and now they both taste horrible.

Hubby still like his soda though and prefers Coke.
I switched him to Pepsi for a month so to ween him off it ... when I now switch him to store brand he won’t notice the difference so much.

I’m tired of giving companies my hard earned money when they stab me and the rest of the country in the back.

I can drink any flavor of store brands except the cola.

All you Pepsi entusiasts, this is their leader:

We begin with the most newsworthy, Indra Nooyi, the Indian-American president of PepsiCo. After dismissing cliched graduation speeches as “the snooze before the booze,” Ms. Nooyi demonstrated to Columbia Business School graduates last Sunday that a hyphenated heritage lends a person incredible foreign policy expertise. Using her hand as a model of world politics (with each finger representing a leading continent), she said of the United States:

This analogy of the five fingers as the five major continents leaves the long, middle finger for North America, and, in particular, The United States. As the longest of the fingers, it really stands out. The middle finger anchors every function that the hand performs and is the key to all of the fingers working together efficiently and effectively. This is a really good thing, and has given the U.S. a leg-up in global business since the end of World War I.

However, if used inappropriately — just like the U.S. itself — the middle finger can convey a negative message and get us in trouble. You know what I’m talking about. In fact, I suspect you’re hoping that I’ll demonstrate what I mean. And trust me, I’m not looking for volunteers to model.

Discretion being the better part of valor... I think I’ll pass.

How generous and kind. Let’s all raise our Cokes to her.

Lets see:

Coca Cola supports enviro-wack-o philosophy

Pepsi is a radical homosexual activist supporting company...

Pick your poison, or pick another drink.

So, we really don’t know where that middle finger’s been, do we?

…Why I’m a Pepsi drinker now

I think I'll just drink homebrew beer. Or water. (That way I won't support any of the bastards)
