Dear Coca-Cola Company,

Please revise your unethical business practices. I really miss drinking Coke.

Yours Sincerely,
Yvette Sitlington


And on a similar note:


Dear Pepsi Company,

Don't bother revising your sexist advertising campaign. I never drank anything you made, anyway.

Yours Sincerely,
Yvette Sitlington

Could you elaborate? About both Coca-Cola and Pepsi? I know nothing about Pepsi's advertising campaign, and don't know about Coke's business practices.

Have you seen that Simpsons episode where they Duff spills on the feminist picketers, and they start dancing and squealing? It's basically just that. Some guy's Pepsi rolls across the road, he runs after it, the truck crashes, huge amounts of mud spill onto these two women, who start mud-wrestling, which sets of something else, which sprays water all over some cheerleaders, who start dancing, etc. etc. etc..

Ugh.

Sorry, I read that as "and know about Coke...". I am yet to substantiate it, due to end-of-year-end-of-school-forever exams, but it comes from a trusted source.

Apparently, the Coca Cola company high-ups were linked to the murder of some people in the third-world who work for them, and who were trying to start a workers' union.

Apparently they have 'a friendship' with deathsquads in Colombia.
