Go to a vending machine, plunk in a few quarters, select "Coca-Cola", and you expect to know exactly what you're getting, right?
Most of the time, yep. You're getting a Coke - some sugary, sweet, corn-syrup-y liquid to keep you wired for a little bit. But that's not ALWAYS the case. Sometimes...you might get something else., like usmc_jpt discovered.
His first guess was - naturally - total confusion. Why was there what appeared to be a bloody tampon jammed into his bottle? Why were there a bunch of quarters at the bottom? And more importantly, WHY WASN'T THERE ANY COKE IN THE BOTTLE?!
As it turns out, this wasn't just any bottle of Coke. Apparently, he had...won a polar bear?
Yep, it was a stuffed polar bear all right - plus a few quarters so the lucky winner could ALSO get himself the Coke he wanted.
So the next time you're trying to get a Coke, keep this in mind: you might not get an actual bottle of Coke, but at least it won't be a used tampon either.
