The Case Against Coke

Is Coke about to get canned? A 27-year-old Russian woman recently sued the soft drink company for her Coke addiction- and won! She claims to have acquired her addiction by participating in a promotional offer that traded bottle caps for prizes. At trial, exhibit A was one of the inflatable mattresses awarded to her. Exhibits B, C, and D consisted of other crap prizes that most people would repackage and use as Christmas gifts for third cousin relatives. Natalya Kashuba, however, drank around 3 liters a day for 5 years in order to win herself a pile of worthless junk, not to mention an invaluable chronic gastrointestinal condition. Because Coca Cola failed to warn its consumers of potential health risks, the court made Coke cough up some cash in an unprecedented ruling that could inspire many more suits to follow. Hmm...is Coke on the verge of broke?

People who blame others for their own stupidity piss me off too. Take responsibility for your own actions, it's not like CocaCola forced you to drink it 3times a day. Freaking idiot.

Hasn't she ever heard the whole "Coke can dissolve a tooth" thing? I mean if a small amount can dissolve a tooth overnight, what idiot wouldn't think that a large amount everyday for 5 years would jam your insides?

That is SO STUPID! What kind of idiot drinks 3 liters of coke every day for 5 years in order to win crappy prizez? I hate lawsuits like this- and I hate that poeple can win! Uh- it says what the serving size is right on the label- like 8 oz probably. Anyone who consumes more than 3 times the reccomended serving of ANYTHING and gets sick should not be able to win these suits. I mean, s#it, you can have health probs from drinking too much WATER!

This is the reason behind stupid warning labels. Honestly, if you aren't going to learn about the consequences of overindulgence with products you are consuming then it is your own fault. Blah.
