After checking snopes and watching Mythbusters, I have found that nearly everything ever circulated about Coke is verifyably false, from it and pop rocks killing Little Mikey to its ability to dissolve a tooth. I thought about posting a list here, but there's just too many. I figured I'd start a thread instead by asking if anybody had heard one that they weren't sure of. I'll go ahead and post what's probably the most widely believed one. Coke was never actually translated into Chinese as 'bite the wax tadpole.' One of the combinations of characters that sounded like "Coca-Cola" could, with proper toning, mean 'bite the wax tadpole,' or any of of a dozen meanings, but was thrown out in the first round of choosing. The winner was (in modern Mandarin pinyin with no tone marks) 'kekoukele,' or 'to allow the mouth to rejoice.'
