What's with this???

 I've just looked through the draft posts that never got published on the blog, like a history lesson that.  I'm putting some of them up over the next while...why waste a bit of history?

I know why this one lingered in drafts...I am hesitant to do any marketing for giant companies.....but this is too weird...did this go on outside of Spain?


Coca-Carlos?

Carlos-Cola?

TOOOO weird!


You can also get mama-cola, papa-cola, maria-cola, and any one of another wide range of common names, I suppose you're supposed to buy them for your friends or collect them or something, but really.  Meh.

On another note, it's beautiful and warm and sunny here, especially in the middle of the day.  The asparagus is coming up and life is pretty darned lovely that way.

OH, and the Olympics are great, even if we do watch it with a weird direct feed.

Oh, those are part of their "share a coke with a friend" campaign. First started with vending machines connected via webcam in India and Pakistan as an attempt to make people from both sides forget their enmities for a while, for the sake of a capitalist carbonated drink. The videos kinda got viral at the time, I think. Wouldn't be surprised if the whole "put names on bottles to make it friendlier" campaign stemmed from it. Found the original video there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts_4vOUDImE

hmmm, I'll check that out when the whole household isn't asleep...that makes a little more sense anyway. Weird though.

Yeah they did that it France too. We always have fun looking for our names, they adapt the names for the country too, so in France you have things like: Marie, Francois, Jean-Baptiste. it's really funny...
