Did you know that Coca Cola…

Coca Cola used to contain cocaine?
Coca Cola used to be made with extract from the coca leaf and kola nuts…so not enough to compete with Boston George or Columbian Cartels but enough for us to still be talking about it now.

Coca Cola used to be considered anti-semitic?
Because they refused to do business in Israel at one point…actually Pepsi has also been considered anti-semitic. This was mostly due to their success in the middle east, and how heavily that success depended on NOT doing business in Israel’s smaller market. This isn’t true any more though, as Coca Cola faced the promise of a boycott by Jewish people in America the company opened a bottling plant in Israel and the rest is history.

The Chinese word for Coca Cola means to allow the mouth to be able to rejoice?
Believe it or not this is actually true. The geniuses behind this had to scour through 40,000 chinese characters (symbols) widdle that down to about 200 where the sounds “co” + “ca” + “co” + “la” could be found, then the symbols’ transliteration had to make sense, imagine all the different combinations of possibilities that had to have been attemped? Geez…

Coca Cola Sexual Imagery?
No way!?! Yes way…in one particular poster in the 80’s a fellating red silhouette was pictured inside an ice cube, a little obscure but not enough to go unnoticed…

I swear I don't know how that got in there...
