I'm holding out for a hero

Found this, well, let's call it what it is, bucket, at the local movie theatre. For 30 RMB ($5 USD) you can have it filled with Coke. If you're a reader from the States, this may not be too big a deal since you've seen something close to this size in a Super Big Gulp at the gas station. But if you're like me, reading this in Asia, you probably had the same reaction I did, which means your eyes are bugging and you wonder who could possibly finish such a great big drink!

Cups here are very small, a large from McD's is closer to a small in the US (so it goes with clothing sizes as well). I've been Coke-free for over two years now, so the thought of drinking that much sugary sweet beverage makes me want to vomit. I was thinking this was for a giant, but evidently only heroes need plunk down their cash for a bucket of Coke. I guess I'm just not hero material. Thankfully.


  1. Yes could never buy any clothes there. And that was when I was thin. I was too tall too.. That's ok. More money to spend on other things!

  2. That's a big cup! Now fill it with ice water or lemonade and I could suck it right down!!
