Hi Huns! We’ve all heard of conspiracy theories and wondered whether or not there was any truth to them eh? I can’t be the only one who reads this stuff... Can I? Any who, jump on the bandwagon and read some of these; some are funny, some are downright ridiculous, and some will make you go hmm.
First of all what is a conspiracy theory? A conspiracy theory is a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for a circumstance or event, and explanation of an event or situation that invokes a conspiracy without warrant. So why am I writing about these? Because my loves sometimes I catch myself staring at the ceiling at night time and counting sheep doesn’t do it for me as quick as it does for my two year old granddaughter who’s snoring happily in the next room. So yes, these help me tumble off the deep end into a pool of sleep until my weak bladder wakes me and shuffles me down the hall to the restroom. Okay that’s an over share, however here are a couple of interesting conspiracy theories I’ve read about.
The New Coke. I’m always reading about food and drinks, always, and this one was very interesting to me. The New Coke was manufactured between 1985 and 2002 remember? A theory claims that the Coca-Cola Company deliberately changed the formula to an inferior formula with New Coke with the intentions of either driving up demand for the original Coke product or permitting the reintroduction of the original Coke with a new formula using cheaper ingredients. Supposedly this new formula was preferred in taste tests of nearly 200,000 consumers. The then President of Coca-Cola Donald Keough rebutted this charge saying “The truth is, we’re not that dumb, and we’re not that smart.” Hmmm. Well Coca-Cola , the New Coke tasted a lot like the classic Coca-Cola that had been diluted with water, lots of water. I missed having that noisily release of air from my stomach (burping really loud) after just three, maybe four swigs of the soft drink. Oh and the burning in my nostrils after the belching, well that’s the southern way! I was elated to have the original back, so are you sure this wasn’t your plan all along? Come a little closer…..(whispering) it worked if it was. I purchased cases after the classic was reintroduced. However it still didn’t quite have it’s original “make me burp loud and burn my nostrils” taste. Hmm.
Paul McCartney is dead. Yep, how many of us have heard this urban legend? It says that Paul McCartney died in a car accident in 1966. He was supposedly replaced with a look-alike and a sound alike. The only evidence supporting McCartney’s death are clues found in the Beatles recordings.. People have stated when a song is played backwards, they can hear concealed lyrics like “Paul is dead, miss him, miss him” and on the cover of the album Abbey Road, because McCartney is the only Beatle barefooted and out of step with the others it is presumed it is not him. Hmm. I think he’s still here amongst us, but…….
The next time I’m restless and can’t sleep or bored, I’m reading up on the one that’s says the Queen of EVERYTHING, Queen Bey, Ms. Sasha Fierce (Beyoncé Knowles-Carter) is a clone. Yep, that’s what I’m gonna read.
If you have any theories you’d like to put out here, let er rip Tater Chip! And share with us. We’d enjoy a good read.
