Does Coke Have Polar Bear Meat In It?


I work in retail, so I’m very sensitive to product packaging, especially when it comes to soft drinks around the holidays.  And this year, Coca-Cola’s 12 packs have pictures of polar bears and snow on them, so I was more than curious to know more about this whole product push and called up one of my friends who knows nothing about coke and much like me doesn’t drink it.  What follows is my interview with my friend.

P:  Does Coke have polar bear meat in it?

Friend:  Probably.  I think it’s about half full of polar bear meat.

P:  And there’s a picture of snow too on the package, so is there snow in it as well?

Friend:  I think it’s about an eighth full of snow.

If this is true, how can coke get away with this?  Don’t they realize that polar bears are a vulnerable species because of habitat loss and that 8 of the 19 polar bear subpopulations are in decline.

Buy a Paulette T-shirt

in an attempt to waste my time, I hand painted these unpopularly sized t-shirts to sell when we went on tour in November, and now it’s December, and I still have them.  Are you a Medium or Large size with a love of Paulette.  Well, we can help you.  Only $20.00 each plus shipping, and you or your loved one will not be able to stop smiling while wearing or simply owning one of these beauties.  Fruit of the loom 100% cotton.  I can also make one your size if you’d like.


omigod, it’s a guitar.

yet another beautiful guitar, jiggling this time


incredible balancing act


everybody’s favorite sea creatures


“Use your words” they tell me.
