Ads you'll never see again #6

Yes indeed. The fine print is a little difficult to read here, so I'll just quote the justification for starting cola earlier: "Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much higher chance of gaining acceptance and "fitting in" during those awkward preteen and teen years. So do yourself a favour. Do your child a favour. Start them on a strict regimen of sodas and other sugary carbonated beverages right now, for a lifetime of guaranteed happiness."

I'd love to know the research design they used for those laboratory tests.

It's hilarious, but it is in fact an internet fake. See here http://hunternuttall.com/blog/2008/06/cola-is-good-for-babies-fact-or-fiction/(especially comments where the creator fesses up) and here http://arnoldzwicky.wordpress.com/2010/04/01/give-your-baby-soda-pop/

Oh well...I was fooled for a while! I have more of these, but I may have to work on checking authenticity more closely in the future...
