PEPSI Generation

One of my favorite things about anti-Semitic conspiracy theories is that they're so over the top. Starbucks' logo is a picture of Queen Esther. The blue stripes on Israel's flag denote its desired borders (wrong to begin with) -- not the Mediterranean to the Jordan, but the Nile to the Euphrates.

And today, we get another fine contribution to the genre: "Pepsi" is an acronym for "Pay Every Penny to Save Israel." Not only was Pepsi trademarked in 1903, some 45 years before Israel was established, that would be a really dumb choice of an acronym. We rule the world, don't we have any marketing consultants on staff? Give us some credit here.
