Teaching our Children

With all this talk about the "meaning" of Christmas and what we're teaching our children, either in the true Christian meaning of Christmas or the all-encompassing meaning of the kwanza, judeo-christian-roman-celtic meaning of the re-birth of solstice,we all missed the one main politically-unencumbered salient point.

HAS ANYONE FIGURED OUT WHAT IS INHERENTLY WRONG WITH THE COCA-COLA POLAR BEAR///PENGUIN AD??????

There is an old riddle that will give you a clue.....If you are living in a house and all of the windows face south...what color is the bear?

WHITE!!!!

WHY??? Because Polar Bears live in the arctic circle....and penguins????

Yup, Antarctic....

So if I see that baby polar bear slide down that hill one more time to the Wilson brothers into the penguins' beach party, I'm gonna' scream -

Stop worrying about the true meaning of Christmas and start worrying about basic geography people!!! What the f&#@ are you teaching your children???

I'm sure this sprang from the same minds that came up with the movie "Double Jeopardy" whose entire plot turned on a legal fallacy even people who repeat “Bloody Mary” three times in the bathroom mirror found it ridiculous.

But, to be honest, I didn’t think about the geographical problem as much as wondering, “Don’t polar bears eat penguins?” I guess not. But if they did, they would wash them down with a Coke, that’s for sure.

Perhaps what we have here is a bipolar penguin.

sick, Bitterman, just sick...of course, if we're really going to be on point, they must be BiPolar Bears!

Nice catch on that ad!

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Just give the damn bear a Diet Coke and he'll love you forever. ;)
