Slow news day?

In the Corner, John J Miller complains:
Three TV commercials I can't stand:
2. Coke: I'm thinking of the one with polar bears and penguins. Don't they know that polar bears live in the Arctic and penguins in the Antarctic? This is biological illiteracy.

Somehow I don't find penguins and polar bears together a lot more difficult to believe than polar bears and penguins smiling at each other while they open and share bottles of Coke®.

Mrs. Morgan was also perplexed to see polar bears and penguins in perfect proximity. Preposterous!

If Polar Bears ever encountered penguins, they would probably say to themselves, "My, I'll bet these penguins will taste good if I wash them down with some coke."

Man, this is too much to take before coffee.

Hey, I'm not the one who got twitchy about cartoon penguins.
