Coke. There are people who order a Pepsi and refer to it as a coke. The name has become generic for soft drink.

Coca-Cola, Chevrolet, and America. U.S.A, U.S.A, U.S.A!!!!

Rocking J. Branding is a very cruel way to mark livestock. De-horning is done without anesthesia and sometimes leaves a hole in the skull exposing the brain.

But what the hell, I still enjoy a medium rare steak or big juicy hamburger cooked on the grill.

with ketchup . . .

Can't ketchup and mustard coexist peacefully on a hot dog? Tolerance. :)

Definitely on a burger, never on a hotdog. Catsup on a hot dog is just wrong, so wrong.

Qtips & Kleenax. Everyone calls them that, I doubt a lot of people don't even know that they are name brands and assume that's the actual product (cotton swabs and tissue)

In the south (Atlanta) they call all soda pop "Coke". You say that you want a Coke and then you follow it with what you really want. I think that Coke is the mots recognized brand.

greatest at what? certainly not our education standards. our human rights standards are becoming dangerously low. and our available jobs as well as our trade deficit are pretty lacktacular as well. So what are we so great at?

My friend, Gus, asked me to send him a link the other day. I told him I'd 'merrill' it right over. Then, I forgot. Sorry, Gus.

How about if we add sauerkraut to the ketchup and mustard? Maybe diversity is the key.

This song applies to the OTS and quite possible to Hollis's Buttrock theme.

It must have been "Wear Ridiculous Glasses Day."

It hits you all day long, in every place you live: Shopping, Advertising, Science, Legal issues, News and Media. It is used as an excuse, a motivation, a hedge. It justifies and it categorizes. Inflamess and guiltifies, it is the only thing left for science and engineering to work on.

It is GREEN. Green guilt. Green energy. Green engineering. Green, green, green. It is the basis of everything designed, built, manufactured, and promoted today. The ubiquitous brand of green is on dish washing soap, motor oil, paper, everything.

You think that marketing of cars and fast food is everywhere? Not even close to Green.
