White Coke Specially Exists For Embarrassed Politicians - But Not The Coke You Think!


Marshal of the Soviet Union, Georgy Zhukov, was so embarrassed in the 1940’s to be seen in public drinking Coca Cola, that he commissioned them to make a white, vodka looking coke for him because he liked the taste.

It wasn’t as simple as removing the color.

In order for this to happen, Genderal Mark Clark passed this onto president Harry S. Truman.

He passéd this request onto the chairman of Coca Cola, James Farley, who then passed the request onto the technical supervisor Miladin Zarubica.

Miladin then had to go to Austria in 1946 and obtain access to a large bottling plant and find a chemist that could do this.

When the color was removed, it was in a clear bottle with a white cap and looked like bottled water or vodka.

Fifty cases were then sent to Georgy Zhukov.

Normally, these types of shipments would be stopped at customs but they were able to pass way before the two week period in Austria.

The Powerpuff Girls Originally Had A Hilarious Name That Was Too Inappropriate For TV At The Time!


At the time, young children saying "whoop ass" to their parents probably would have given them a MAJOR time out and time away from the television. But today, it's not a word people freak out about.

In 1992, the idea of Powerpuff Girls was conceived by writer Craig McCracken. It was originally called "Whoopass Stew!" and the PP girls were called the "Whoopass Girls".

After a needed name change, 3 years later, World Premiere Toons snagged up what McCracken had made. Following it's release, in November of 1998, Cartoon Network picked it up for a program called Cartoon Cartoon.

Over the course of it's lifetime, he had been nominated for six Emmy Awards, a Kid's Choice Award and nine Annie awards. This past June, Cartoon Network made the kick-ass announcement that it would be returning sometime in 2016, 12 years after the last new episode went off the air.

Seinfeld still makes a ton of money, even though they're all reruns!


It's been nearly two decades since “Seinfeld” brought the world laughter, smiles, and class-A entertainment while providing absolutely no storyline whatsoever.

It turns out that even in recent times, Jerry Seinfeld's show still brings the laugh—and the money. He's still one of the top ranking comedians in terms of earning.

The show's 180-episodes still brings in a lucrative $3 billion in syndication royalties!

The show was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld himself. It ran for 9 seasons, originally airing on July 5, 1989 and the final episode airing May 14, 1998.

It was critically hailed as a top comedy and a cultural phenomenon. It led the Neilson ratings in its 6th and 9th season and finished in the top two every year from 1994 to 1998.

It was even heralded as the greatest television show of all time by TV Guide in 2002.

It's no wonder that running the show again, even in this new era of reality shows and award-worthy dramas, the show still makes a ton.

Some awesome lists!

Al-Qaeda's website was hacked, and what the hackers did was hilarious!


Just imagine the look of surprise on an al-Qaeda member's face when they thought they were loading a tutorial on how to "make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" but actually got a recipe for mojito cupcakes.

Famed British intelligence agency MI6 hacked 'Inspire,' the first English-language Jihadist online magazine, early last year but their cheeky content-swapping mission has only just been made public now.

As the story goes, they swapped potentially-destructive bomb-making tutorials with jumbled-up code for the Ellen DeGeneres talk show website, which contained cupcake recipes from Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio.

Recipes for delicious-sounding mojito and rocky road cupcakes contained the caveat "Warning: Sugar rush ahead!" Better watch out for those dangerous cupcakes!

Cake frosting is healthier for you than Nutella!


Nutella is one of the great tasting spreads you can pick up at your local supermarket. Beware, once you pop the top of it, it's tough to stop!

The delicious, chocolatey almond spread was originally seen as being a great substitute for peanut butter, but a recent study found out you may as well spread chocolate cake frosting on your toast instead.

ABC looked into Nutella and other unhealthy foods and made a starling discovery: it's about as healthy as the Milky Way candy bar.

One tablespoon of Nutella contains 100 calories, 6 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat and 11 grams of sugar.

In comparison, generic cake frosting has 75 calories, 3 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat and 7.5 grams of sugar. Cake frosting is officially healthier!

Nutella was taken to court for advertising it as a healthy breakfast treat and lost to the woman. They also settled a class-action lawsuit regarding the healthy advertising for $2.5 million. Anyone who bought Nutella from January 2008 to February 3, 2012 was entitled to a piece of the settlement. Contact your lawyer today!
