7203: Processed Garbage.
Drinking up the news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Two Wisconsin men managed to win a $1.26 billion judgment against PepsiCo, insisting the soft drink company ripped off their idea to sell bottled water. Funny thing is, PepsiCo never responded to the charges, and didn’t even realize the case was being tried, because the paperwork was mishandled in the company’s internal processing system. Ironically, PepsiCo’s bottled water processing system has always been suspicious too.
• Sears is getting an early start with holiday sales, holding its first “Black Friday” event tomorrow—almost a month before the traditional after-Thanksgiving period. Gee, why not just have the after-Christmas sale on Saturday? Oh, and Sears probably celebrated Halloween in September. Sorry, kids.
