"Foktop" Drink Cup

This is a typical plastic cup used to contain Sloche beverage.

The "FokTop" on the cup is a the phonetic pronounciation of the swear phrase, "f***ed up". Here in Quebec, it's commonplace for francophones to curse and swear in English as part of normal conversation. Because they are francophone, the words do not have the same negative meaning and are not seen as curse words. Quebec anglos (like me) "get" the double-entendre.

I guess Sloche thought it would be funny to print it on the cup. It is!
