Default Not Funny - but truly embarassing

Coca-Cola blames bilingualism for ?You Retard? message in bottle cap | canada.com

In Canada Coke tried a bilingual contest where they put an English and a French word together to send a message to customers, unfortunately, one of the combinations that came up was "You Retard."

I don't know about you - we used to say this all the time when I was a kid, but now I find it very offensive to make fun of people with disabilities, and I would never say this.

Now - Coke did not do this on purpose - but they did it - and it slipped by. OOps.
