Nothing like a Reved-up Blue Collar Male, I say

Consumer Reports scammed its way into a beverage convention. One of their most interesting (and amusing) findings was the CocaCola exhibit. Coke talked about their various brands, and who drank them. If I'd drunk Evian before (like my influential cosmopolitan friends here in New York), I'd slink away with my tail between my legs. I'd much rather Rev-up the working class. Maybe it'll keep Obama in for another 4 years.

Machine Translation

I love it when some Chinese export company thinks they can run something through the machine translator, and then print it. Comes out in perfect English, huh? It's job security for linguists and proof-readers, I'd say.
