I never drink Coke. Now I just have another reason. I don't own their stock either.

As a gay man, I'm simply DEVASTATED that I can't customize a soda can. I'll try to pick up the pieces and go on with my life.(LOL!)

Yes, we must over come this horrid injustice to our existence and happiness. First Chick-fill-a, then that nasty Duck Dude, and now this. I'm hoping it doesn't affect marriage equality. It just feels like the trollish bigots are taking over.

Couldn't!!! I'm sure Coke couldn't care less.

Regardless of the reason people say they could care less, it is one of the more common language peeves because of its illogical nature. To say you could care less means you have a bit of caring left, which is not what the speakers seem to intend.

I couldn't care less what Coke thinks.

My sentiments exactly, and you stated them brilliantly.

A decade ago, we couldn't get married in any of these United States, and we couldn't serve openly in the Armed Forces. Now the big struggle involves personalizing a stupid soft drink can? We've come a l-o-n-g way.

As it says in the Bible, before you tell someone to stick a can up their ass, first remove the fists ... and the 12-pack ... from your own.

We must let them think they have made some big difference, otherwise what would we laugh at here on Topix? Look at the multi-name troll, spamming all over the place. It's just too comical!!!!

Yes, we have come a long way. And listen to the brain dead bigots boo hoo hoo about it. Of course, they call us gaining our civil rights "forcing the gay lifestyle" on them. They'll be sitting in thier trailer parks and REALLY bawling when gay marriage and civil rights is the law of the land.

Who drink Coca-Cola still? It's full of sugar and helps you getting diabetes fast.

The homophobes are a bunch of losers who can't face the fact this is the 21st century and times are changing. All they can do is come to this forum and vent thier mounting frustration and panic that gays are winning the civil rights battle.

The one that has the real mental health issues on these threads is the obsessed poster who has to keep changing user names because of his inability to post any statements without profanity. Your daily rants are pathetic.

Claiming that a person is "talking" when he has "posted" is a sign of obsessive mental insecurities. If you don't think the post is directed towards you, then it seems rather silly to reply!! Now go change your name. It completes you!
