The Coca-Cola Crisis

There are rumors at the moment that Coca-Cola have run out of bubbles to put in there colddrinks.
I don't know if the stories are true, somebody made it up.
I don't know exactly how they make bubbles, but to my understanding it is carbon dioxide (CO2). It can't be too difficult getting hold of that, is it.
I do know you can get oxygen by putting electricity through watter. I think that is called Electrolysis. On the one node you will get hydrogen, and the other will have oxygen.
Now to what I understand if you burn carbon in the oxygen it will produce carbon dioxide?

Anyway, I was at the airport on Sunday and bought a Coke.
I emidiatly thought th can looked funny...

When I drank it, I thought it tasted funny (It's amazing how we can taste Coke).
I had a better look at the can and I saw it was from Singapore.
Have we started importing our Coke, or is it just one place.

I bought another coke today, which also looked different.
This one however tasted fine, it is just a piece of plastic around a 25ml glass bottle.
And are definably South African, due to the SABS mark on the lid (although I don't think that's clear in the picture)

Now, after all that, I prefer Pepsi.
That could have something to do with Apple Computer, or Fight Club, but I just think it's better.

I have always wondered.
If you look under Santa's boot would it say something like
Santa Clause is a product of the Coca-Cola Company.
