    What are the odds a tard bought strange water and happened to get the one cap that insulted her? Zero. They went searching for a cap to be mad at.

    That's the best promotion they could come up with? Someone should be fired for laziness.

    Thank God. Before more lives are ruined.

    "According to Vitaminwater's website, the bottle caps combine "random" French and English words. "Retard" in French means late."

    Well that explains it. The French gave up during production and pretty much phoned it in.

    Considering her CP, I'd be mighty impressed.

    Also screw this family for considering their daughter retarded.

    That's really funny. If I got that bottle cap I'd be laughing about it the rest of the day if not week. The last thing I would be is angry or insulted. But then again, I possess a decent sense of humor. Just for shits and giggles, Coke should have the occasional cap with a racial or homosexual slur just to get some reaction.

    As posted in the funny things thread, that's what it means in English, too.

    Fucking oversensitive idiots.

    HEY!

    I was also thinking how much longer until I don't get calls to fix a "retarder" in a bakery.

    At least they actually used "retard" in the article. I hope the French word for black is Negro and that there's still some bottles out there.

    The French word for black is "noir".

    But "late" implies that those people will get there eventually. Not happening.

    Fuck this guy. I bet before he had his retard he had no problem with the word, and probably loved using it. Now that he has a retard everyone else has to stop using it because now he doesn't like it. This reminds me of Jimmys ME ME ITS ALL ABOUT MEEEEE rants

    The same thing happened to my friend. He had a handicapped kid and now him and his wife are ultra sensitive to the word retard. I told him he just has to take it in context and realize when people say that they aren't talking about his son. Until people start using the retards name in their sentence like "Stop acting like a Fiona", they should know people mean no harm by it.
