We're visiting my folks in Springfield.

When we're here MizSplotchy and I usually try to go see a movie on one of the nights, after the kids have gone to bed.

This weekend was no exception. Last night we saw the new Indiana Jones movie, which was pretty much what we expected it would be.

All the movie theaters in Springfield are owned and run by Kerasotes Theatres.

We were purchasing treats prior to the movie, and this was the image on the soda fountain facing toward the moviehouse patrons.

Note the Kerasotes "K" overlaying the Coca-Cola logo, which combined displays the very appealing name "Cockola". And of course the icing on the cake is the sign's entreaty to "Taste the Magic".

I am laughing so hard and a certain Mr. He Is, who drinks enough Cockola to kill a horse also enjoyed this photo.

Taste the magic indeed!

So, instead of ordering a "large Coke," you say ... whoa, that must be awkward.

I've been searching for Cockola for a while now!

Joe said...

How is that pronounced? Is it "cock-COLA" or "cock-a-luh"? I need to know.

Splotchy said...

Fran, if we didn't have substandard graphic sign, what a sad, boring world this would be.

bsuwg, if you dare me, I'll try and order a Cockola next time I see a movie in Spfld.

The IR, that's cockcorn, obviously.

Beckeye, too much information!

bubs, I say it like "Cock CO-la".

A cock and a smile, please.
