Looks like Coca Cola has reached a new high in subliminal messaging.

Coca-Cola Apologizes for Offensive Bottle Cap


Blake Loates of Edmonton told Metro Calgary she was shocked when she opened her beverage and read the words "YOU RETARD," written inside of the cap. The language was particularly painful to her and her family as one of Loates' younger sisters, Fiona, 11, has cerebral palsy and autism.



Representatives for Coca-Cola have since stated that the language inside of the cap was the product of a competition pairing one random English word with a second random French word. In French, "retard" means "late" or "delayed." The word's English connotation was missed during the review process, said a spokesperson.

That's the new Coke Classic for you. They screw up and blame it on the French.

In all due fairness, if you buy into that vitamin water crap, you just might be.

This just hit my funny bone. I could picture some poor guy sitting at his "bottle message machine" night after night. Finally he snaps.

"I'm not going to take this ANYMORE!!"

Next thing we know *poof* random bottle cap insults. Made me laugh.

Ahahahaha yeah I can't wait for ATS to have a front page message.

"Home of the gullible idiots who think conspiracies are real"

it's hilarious to all the jocks and sheeple. "Ooh Ooh da shooter is a psyop. da planes are holo graphs. Ooh Ooh da moon is a space ships!!!" Baww..

You guys wont mind being called gullible idiots, it's not offensive to me, and you know your conspiracies are all bunk. We all know that.


Humour, get over it. You sensitive little girls blouses are strong enough to handle it. I am.

*i despair at the world*

It means the same in English too.

That's some cracker jack reporting.

All I can say is what I said on the other thread:

Its freaking funny and if I got a funnny one I would laugh my ass off.


Sheesh when people get all upset and offended over what a freaking bootle cap says you know humour is dead!

People are far too serious these days!
