Coke and a smile? Not in Russia!

Strange anti-Coke calendar from a fun Russian site. Dunno if it speaks to a caramel coloring health concern, a Coke = USA slam, or is more a salvo directed at Pepsi-Cola. ( Coke Bets on Russia for Sales Even as Economy Falls Flat - WSJ.com )

Whatever it is, it's got pretty cool old school graphics:

Love it. It’s the real thing, combo of Russian graphics from way back and now. Interesting that they equate it to drugs, “dealer is the worst enemy.” It would be hard to cut the parts of your budget that are addictive items. They even have a Coca Cola equivalent to our, “this is your brain on drugs.” Might be a bad time to drive a grocery truck there.

"Together we'll overcome" and "Enemy of the mind" - at least that's how someone has translated them - Anyone else want to take a crack at translation? Trek?
