The Coke vs. Pepsi rivalry (aka The Cola Wars) is one of the oldest and most publicized rivalries in the history of American business. It’s also a rivalry that’s near and dear to my heart. I prefer Coke, but I worked for Pepsi for a while, and one time I almost got fired from my job as a humor writer for comparing the taste of one of these sodas (who was an ad sponsor) to “the sweat from a hooker’s ass crack”. In my defense, I never said whether that comparison was intended to be good or bad. Some people really like hooker ass crack sweat. Here’s a brief history of the Coke vs. Pepsi rivalry, aka The Cola Wars.

The battle of Real Money vs. Fake Money is just another way of saying “The History of Counterfeiting”, and counterfeiting is a concept that you’re already familiar with. Remember that scene in Goonies when they’re in the basement and Data turns on the machine and then he starts yelling, “Fitty Dalla Bew! Fitty Dalla Bew!”? Well, that was a counterfeit money press.  Slick Shoes! Pinchers of Power! Hey You Guuuuys!
