All the great Coca-cola slogans right here, including, "Good to the last drop." Must have been another era in intellectual property. Blame Teddy Roosevelt.

Good to the last drop. Didn't know that was Coca-Cola's slogan. I do remember that for Maxwell House.

I remember the company pinched a few too many pennies on its foreign market translations of "Coke adds life." The Chinese version implied that Coke would reanimate your dead ancestors.

Barefoot Lass (modestly covering her butt) offers a whole dam page of wacky uses for Co'cola sent in by her readers.
"Fact or Fiction, you decide...", quips the web mistress, before offering:
"The Coca-Cola name in China was first read as "Kekoukela", meaning "Bite the wax tadpole" or "Female horse stuffed with wax", depending on the dialect. Coke then researched 40,000 characters to find a phonetic equivalent "kokou kole", translating into "happiness in the mouth.""
Don't miss the submarine stripper and commode brightener entries. It's the clean thing!

Club soda with sugar and brown food coloring added is "like Coca-Cola," isn't it? I mean, what am I missing here?

Like God, Coke has many names, but in the end it is is just itself.

It is who am, and Barefoot Lass's joke soundtrack, she is intolerable, but she presents this for our pleasure-taking: "Two potato's were standing on the street corner. How can you tell which one is the prostitute? Answer: One has a little sticker that sez: IDAHO."
Although at root a potato can be a'peeling to some (because, for example, it plays the tuber well), how can it be a prostitute? I'll take my answer off the air.

Carnival admist the Ruins. Can you imagine a science fiction movie, in which the last tribe on earth dresses up as politicians and celebrities from today and pantomimes the news from 2007?

This is my favorite part: "If you cite this anecdote, please cite this source."

At least they say, please. No attorneys involved at this point, apparently.
