THE WAY $TARBUCK$ $EE$ IT
$tarbuck$ new cutie cuppie quotes are intended to spark "conversation in the tradition of coffee houses everywhere." Oh yeah? How bout getting all over that wonderful coffeehouse tradition of not charging Government contractor prices for a cup of brewed coffee beans and water? In fact, The Way I See It $tarbuck$, this marketing chicanery (or chicupery, I guess) must be a prelude to you raising your prices to the Verbosely-Grande level. It's also a hackneyed idea stolen from The Meaning Of Life scene where the American couple are given conversation cards so that they have something to talk about over dinner:
Mrs. Hendy: Do all philosophers have an S in them?
Mr. Hendy: Yeah I think most of them do.
Mrs. Hendy: Oh... Does that mean Selina Jones is a philosopher?
Mr. Hendy: Yeah... Right, she could be... she sings about the Meaning of Life.
And why is "Moby" (born Dick Hall) one of the quoted "personalities?" Somebody please explain the supposed Moby—Talent connection to me? Please?
McSweeneys has of course already posted some funny "rejected submissions."
