Things would’ve gone better with Coke
A lot of people have the wrong idea about Marie Antoinette. She wasn’t nearly so nasty as they say. For instance, when told that the peasants were starving and preparing to revolt, it occurred to her that the bright, clean, refreshing taste of Coca-Cola would lift their spirits and make things go a little better. So she suggested, in the legendary words,  “Let them drink Coke.” Unfortunately, she was misquoted, and you know what happened after that. All of which goes to prove, we suppose, that you can’t have your cake and drink it too.
